no another 20 gallon grow out haha

While 20 gallon is the minimum, a lot of breeders on here kept recommending me to get another one because of the fry count. they said 40 gallons is more reasonable since there will be so many fry.

yea, sorry I just edited my last post. I'm just using a 22.5 gallon plastic tub for my other one. I didn't have another glass tank in the budget. Though I'm not sure was to what I should use for a hood, though.

Yea, but I feel like saran wrap would be a lot of work. I'd have to keep reapplying it every time. Such a pain! I'm going to look into glass covers. I'm about to go to the pet store with my grandma to buy a new tank for her betta that's coming in the mail (she's actually excited! YAY!). I'll get measurements and post about it when I get back.

Some males don't like to build nests. I've read about transferring an already built nest from another male's tank to the breeding tank to see if he'd use that. I've also read about using cups to have a place to put the nest under (or floating leaves, though leaves sometimes sink). I've also read that some people just let eggs sit and hope for the best, though I'm not so sure how much that would help.

i've got two betta-cup lids, a stem of pothos and a betta cup cut in half floating in the tank to give him plenty of options for nest building. i already tried to transfer a bit of bubblenest from Leonidas's tank to see if he's pick up the work from there, but he's ignored it as well.
