That's what I said lol I have to keep reminding people it might not work out the first time either!! lol They will have to wait

I don't know if I should encourage more betta addicts though lol! jk jk One of my friends came over and made me show her all of my bettas (I was happy that someone was interested) she saw my enthusiasm and went out and got a really nice red veil tail + she wants some babies if they happen, I warned her that once you go past one there is no going back lol...I told her to stop on by the forum if she has time

Some people try 2 or 3 times before having a successful spawn. Other people get lucky on the first try.

Maybe buy a couple other cultures, like Microworms or Vinegar eels and go from one to the other?
Okay, I would like to get microworms or vinegar eels, but once again could only get them off the internet. I'm trying to avoid outrageous shipping costs for a $5-10 product.

I got mine for 2 bucks a starter pack (I bought 2 just in case) total shipping = 1 dollar something total around 6 bucks for 2 packs and shipping ;)

btw if we do fail, how long would we have to wait before reintroducing the same pair of bettas to spawn again?

I believe we would have to go through the whole reconditioning process again, so like the 2 weeks of conditioning...but that's assuming that the fish are okay after the first breeding without too much fin damage and whatnot.
