Exclamation Drip Sytem is it worth it

so I am planing on having a stock of 10-20 males for my breeding program and here is my question is it worth making a drip sytem or should i let them be stand alone tanks with no filter keep in mind some of the males will be king males so idk what to do

I would personally start out with a few males and see if you can breed them.. depends on how big you make your breeding program - one or two spawns going at a time, you only need a few males as it will be 3-4 months+ before you get a grow out tank free from babies. Not to mention you will want to be using some of the babies you make.. so unless breeding 10 spawns at a time, keep in mind you may not get around to breeding most of those males.. just food for thought :)

As for the drip system it depends on how much space/money/time you have to spend on their care, and how you build your barracks.

Here are a couple ideas of what you will be doing if you are going to have that many males + drip system..

Basement Bettas Barracks - personal fave, this particular one is older I believe, but the same process applies.

Barrack - making

You will basically be setting up a barrack to do a drip system - so would google that as well.
