1 to 10... 1 being getting my fish to swim... 10 being getting my dog to loose leash walk... spawning is a 4.

Raising fry, culling, working towards something meaningful with your breeding... now that's a 10.

Now, now...if you are talking about goals and the ease of getting to the point or ideal Betta in your plan...that would be 10+....quality or your goal is not fast nor easy.....and it wouldn't be much of a challenge if it was.....that is half the fun.....in my opinion...the challenge to create while still being responsible and respectable......all part of the plan....

In reality....when you are creating based on your plan.....you have to cull hard....personally...I cull down to 20 at the most.....more than this and you can make a hobby...work-in the beginning....once your line breeds true then you go for numbers............ I go for quality more than quantity in some of my spawns...granted with some that breed true- I will go for quality and quantity.....but I have been doing this for many, many years and have a buyer for every fish and invert I breed.....(I breed more than just Bettas)......

I was reminded once that I have different types of setups...and this is true.....being a naturalist I have a different view........

Anyone else -

On a scale of 1 - 10, what would you rate breeding bettas? 1 easiest, 10 hardest.
