OKay soooo I have a pair picked out, since this is my first spawning I picked two that were most interested in each other, I picked my yellow male crowntail and my blue and red veil tail. JD had the biggest nest and she gets bars by even seeing a male so I thought I would try theses two :) They started their conditioning 3 days ago. I plan to condition them for a week or 2
Has anyone bred a yellow and a blue before? what did you find :)
Anyways I have a 5 gallon tank, with a 25 watt submersible heater, and a box filter with a valve I can adjust the bubbles with. I have many plants I can add along with a castle with a cave to also hide in. I was planning on cutting a plastic cup in half for the bubble nest.
I didn't get a top with the tank it was only 10 dollars because it was just the tank I have bought saran wrap for the top and a desk lamp for light.
So for feeding I was planning on feeding infusia the first week and then moving up to brine shrimp after that. Does this sound okay for the fry? I know they don't start eating until their yolk sac is absorbed so that was when I was going to introduce infusia. I heard that brine shrimp are a little too big for the first week or so, is this true?
I wanted to ask opinions of my plan. I have been researching breeding bettas since last summer, I just was not ready to do it until now. I want to make sure my info is correct and if people have any other suggestions for things I may be missing.
Thanks for your time guys :D
