When to remove babies??

My betta babies are about 5 weeks old now..

Right now they are in a 10gal with sponge filter, kept at 82F.. all swimming around happy, eating, growing, but growing very slow..

My question is.. When should I remove them to put them in their own 'Space' so they can grow bigger/quicker?

Thanks.

You don't have to separate them until they start becoming aggressive with each other. Leaving them in the grow out tank as long as possible is best. Once you start seeing them nipping at each other it is time to jar the aggressive ones,ones that aren't aggressive can stay together longer.

You usually don't have to start jarring until about 8 weeks of age.
