OH I thought you were like in 8th grade (I am) SO SORRY if I sounded rude!
Anyway I agree with 1fish2fish, the breeding pair should be of more quality. Aquabid is a great start! Think about it, would you buy a betta with ratty fins and muddy colors or a nice finned, interesting colored betta?
I've been breeding for 2 1/2 years now and I still find it hard. With 12 gallon (upping it to 15 gallons next week) water changes everyday and constantly hatching and feeding brine shrimp not to metnion my adult bettas who also need care. It just a more difficult thing to put into action than it is to actually do it.
Also my main concern was those weekend issues. Betta fry (especially during the first month) need good food and clean water.
Betta fry excrete a hormone that stunts other baby fish. Large water changes help with removing this hormone and getting better growth out of your fry.
I'm so sorry if I sounded rude but this forum is super passionate about bettas and don't want dead fry.
