Question Questions

quick question: Next friday will be my 2nd week of conditioning my bettas and I still need some supplies for fry. I cannot find enough jars in stores so can I substitute with LARGE foam cups? Maybe even putting two cups in one to keep it strong and secure? Oh and my lps doesn't have any condition food for adults besides bloodworms so is that okay? I feed my bettas like 3-4 bloodworms 2-3 times a day. But my male doesn't eat much of the bloodworms and he would leave half of it.

Look in the plastic food kitchen container section.
There's some 64oz tall container with lids that I think are great for growing fry.
For condtioning, you're better off feeding pellets with high protein content than bloodworms.

Is Hikari betta bio-gold good for conditioning?

I think most breeders condition their pair by feeding them some live foods like blackworms and mosquito larvae. You can feed frozen foods like brine shrimp and bloodworms. You can supplement feedings with a good quality pellet like New Life Spectrum betta formula.

I conditioned my fish with live white worms, frozen foods (brine shrimp, blood worms, and glass worms), and Atison's Betta Pro.

Tupperware containers found in the kitchen storage section will work but can get a little costly when you have to buy them. I prefer this supplier. You can buy a case with lids shipped for less than you would buying the same size container at walmart.

I use blackworms and daphnia when available. I haven't tried Betta Pro yet, but I probably will when I have enough money available.
