My Second Pair of Breeders ready

Hey all...

My first spawn yielded me not less than 80 Betta's and now after 2 months I am ready with my second pair to breed. I am posting a pic of my breeding Bath Tub here and for pictured of the pair, please refer to the Betta Fish Contest pictures posted under the title "My Latest Pair..." by me.

Wow i have never heard of someone breeding in a real bath tub. Interesting

But is this safe? i see a little rusting on the edges of the tub, im not sure if thats healthy for fry.

I agree! As i mentioned (this cannot be healthy or safe)

Please take the time to figure out how to either use something else or take away the rust without using chemicals. Also get some other suggestions from others too. (NO PET STORE CLERKS OR WORKERS) THEY GIVE FALSE INFORMATION! other than the rust everything seems right.

Thanks for the suggestion guys... This was the same tub that I used for my last breed but then the rust line did not exist. The rust is not from the fibre glass tub but rather from it's sheet metal lid. I'll change the lid and will remove the rust mark too with dilute Sodium Hypo.
