can u get some alovera plant it help all fish to healas u treat them it good for even u skin, i say go CT to the copper if u can find a CT male then go for it, i still bread from pet store fish but i have a eye for fish some of my friends would ask me to pick out fish for them so take in wat the othe guys told ya hehe couse u will need it all yea they will make u spen a lot of money on them if i could ship some alovera for ya i would heck i have a lof of them growing in my back yard n i need to cut them back, so make some room for ur new babys geting ur class to help keep some of them is a good idea too, after the last pet store fish i got i give some of juvies to some of my friends , last june-july i starded back with 8 males/8 females have about not sure at moment lol but males out number the females for now(summer spawning in the carribean) but good luck i'll check back to c way u do ^_^
lol a" nutter" the green alo is safe for all use wat i can do is take a pic of the plant so u can see it, it's the same as the pic u see on some hair n skin products if u friends r comeing to u to pick out fish n other stuff that may means u have a eye for it, here is my tips for picking out good fish 90% of the time i tend to spend about 15 mins watching the fish i want in case of bettas if i can move them about i can see much more about them, my work give me a bit of flex time to study fish a bit so most of wat i have learn was from watching and talking to a lot of people reading some old fish books too now the internet so i'm still learning , i cant really tell u how to bread couse where i live we dont need most of the stuff u guys will need ,all of my bettas live in my yard so i dont need to heat up they tanks but need to keep the quilty of the water at it best at all times, 1 thing i can add maybe is use almond leaf to ur spawning tank give the male ur going to ues about 2 days in it before u add the female, by them u should have a supper size bubble nest
Sexy looks like she's starting to get eggy...girl I haven't even switched your food chill xP Least she's been getting the guys to flare.
SO I found a 29 gallon on craigslist with "corral background, multi-colored rocks, plants, Roman Coliseum, and pirate ship. It has lighted top, filtration system, and air bubble strip" (quoted from the page). $50. Should I bite, then later resell? (doubt I'd be allowed to keep though I'd love to make a sorority out of some girls from the spawn.)
haha sound like ur geting like us i just came form the yard got some wolf out they for fish ^_^, i have stolen some info for ya from a fish site ,u need it after u get ur spawn too 2weeks old the IBC guys use it n i try it n it works supper ^_^ for me too, now where you are from u can get the best fry stater food so i wont tell u wat to feen them just wat to do from 2weeks+ it very eazy if u just have 1-4 spawns n works,if ur like me(job outside of fish)to grow u fry super fast it about the water u need a 10gal or bigger grow out tank so after they r 2 weeks old add 1 gal of clean water every day till tank is full now here where it get tricky u need a piece of airline tubeing to syphon the tank :)i have cut a 2 litre soda bottel punch a hole in the cap add a pice of airline tubeing to fill up the spawn grow out tank with, that y i say 1-4 spawns r eazy haha ok they should be about 3-4 weeks by then n have some size not to sure wat best to do first change water before feading or after the other guys my know better i only learn of this 2 years now oh and u must do it every day about 50%-75% water change never a 100% change 1 other tip make room if u plan on to spawn the same pair again milti spawn tend to unlock some geno of both fish if u have the room to do it
I'm going to talk to dad about the 29 gal (I have the money, just need permission xP) And I can always get rid of the desk in my room I never use it anyway >.> Yay more tanks.
I haven't figured out the best food for my setup is yet, still doing research on that.
yea keep at it newly hatch brime shrimp work for me i have try a few other foods in the pass they all work too but brimeshrimp work best for me, but the way i do it the other guys would scream at me and ask if i'm crazy but for now i keep that 1 to myself i'll post some new pic's of some of my girls was moveing them to a feeding trap soon time to do some more spawing my last spawns are 5 week tomorrow so i'm trying to pump them up
