I've decided to try my hand at breeding again and to try to record it here. I've had a few unsuccessful tries as of late (hungry daddy's eating up all the eggs). Thanks to MrVampire181, Oldfishlady and Tony from The Betta Shop in St.Paul, MN I feel like I'm ready to give it another go. I will try to give updates and provide pictures when I can. Plan to record the process even if it ends in failure.
A few details on the setup:
I've fed all my fish live blackworms for the last two weeks (something new). Something else new I'm trying is wild almond leaf extract.
I will have approximately 4 gallons of water in a 10 gallon tank. Temperature will be between 80 and 82 degrees F. Hiding places, artificial plants, and styrofoam cup, as well as live Wisteria and Java plants.
My thoughts on why I have failed my last attempt are: Water was cycled and not fresh, poor conditioning of fish.
And yes I know what I'm getting into.
So we'll see...
