Do you have to breed in a "breeder" tank or can you breed the in a normal planted tank. by just adding the female then when breeding is done remove her then when frys hatch remove the male

You have to setup a tank specifically for breeding. For bettas that would be: 10 gallon filled halfway, a sponge or corner filter, a 50 watt submersible heater, and a styrofoam cup cut in half lengthwise.

Okay, so no spawning yet. I have a feeling it will happen over night. Blue nipped at Aqua a little, but nothing serious. I'll keep everyone updated. =D

I've read that breeders in Asia often just boil eggs and mash them up into small bits and feed them to the fry O.o

Also Daphnia is supposed to be good for baby fry.

Okay guys, it's a no go for these two. Blue started to get agressive and flare at her. I didn't like it. So now I'm going to try Merlin and Aqua. I can't breed Marina yet, since I just got her. So I'll be starting a new thread. In a month or so I'm going to try Blue and Aqua again or maybe Blue and Marina, don't know yet.

It's okay. I wish they would have, but like I said I'll give them a try eventually.
