Ok, why is this kid on the forum if he's not listening to experienced breeders? Not including myself in that category btw! The reason we all ask so many questions is to make sure there are very few mistakes during the first spawn. Most of us helped on here will report "mistakes" that aren't life threatening to the pair. Like the egg eating thing, or oops I had my water temp a few degrees too low. Take the advice instead of admitting that you expect to make fairly large mistakes.

True, and it isn't even mistakes he is making. He is PURPOSELY making wrong decisions. I am also not an experienced betta keeper, but I have the respect and maturity to take proven advice from people who have owned bettas for many years. I also have the respect for bettas to not just experiment with them and move them around just because breeding would be a cool experience, and if I did breed them, I would play it safe and right.

Unfortunately with this "breeder" all that is going to happen is tons of dead fish. It seems like if this pair doesn't work out he'll get another, and another and another until he finally looses interest. He refuses to learn about behavior and has a know it all attitude that is making all these thread spams useless wastes of time.


You know that I researched breeding for over a year before I even bought my first pairs?? OVER A YEAR. Then it was another 2 months before I even attempted a spawn and you know what? Both of those spawns were extremely successful (however my raising the spawn afterwards was not). One pair had not a single nipped or torn fin (which is amazing for HMs) and the other only had minor tears from chasing. I attribute my success to patience and taking the time to learn how to do it right the first time out.

It is just so sad that there is nothing we can do to save them, everyone tried to hard to get this guy to listen, but to no avail :(

Though I have no betta breeding experience, I feel confident enough to agree that your patience attributed to your success. As they say, Rome wasn't built in a day.

I'm so scared for that poor female, she must be stressed out of her mind.
I'm worried though that:
1. If the spawn is some how successful then he is going to breed him fish again and...
2. If the spawn isn't successful he is probably going to blame the fish instead of himself.
