Hi, what Lethbridge says is true. I have found that when my bettas spawn and the male get all his eggs tended to, lol I uauslly feed my males at the other end of the tank until the eggs hatch. It might not work for some people but I have a bit of luck doing that. After they hatch until they become free swimming I'll usually feed him also. Just a suggestion.

Ok, solid color is a fish of one color. A solid blue fish would be blue and only blue, no other colors.
You asked about price. If your going to buy at a petstore the prices you were told are true but for pure breeder raised bettas you might end up paying anywhere from $20 to more than $500. Solid color pricing is whatever a breeder wants it to be. But petstores have the same price and most of the time the prices are based on tails rather than colors.

How long have you conditioned them for? What size spawning tank are you using? What do you plan to feed the fry?

are you going to feed bbs right from the start? they may be too small to eat that right from the start so you may need to feed infusoria or egg yoke to begin with.
