Yes it is, I had watched a bunch of videos from that thaity betta guy on youtube and thought I would give it a try, but now I know he is quite rude, and has some unorthodox methods, but the bucket is doing just fine, that was the one thing he stressed was to use 5 gallon buckets, dont know if its going to help or hurt, but my fry are doing great, BUT I hate not being able to see everything, I can only see them from the top :/

Cool

How are you keeping the bucket heated? I also wanted to try a bucket after watching mr rudes videos, but went with the storage tubs instead as they have lids.

Keep us posted! And some pics?

Jeff.

My walk in closet has a heater, and after a while I figured out what setting to keep it at to keep the water 82 degrees, but the closet is like 90 degrees :/

Are you keeping the bucket on the floor? try putting it up higher and it will stay warmer.

I had decided to keep it lower and keep the temp higher in the closet because when the bucket was up on the table I have in there, I could not see inside of the bucket without standing, and during spawning I would rather be able to sit in a chair or on the floor and watch

Ive noticed that some have dark heads and bodies, while others look very light, any clue if this is a hint as to what color they will be?
