I will see what they have at Petco. With his coloring I know he will have interesting fry if I get the right female

I am not going to breed him until I research a lot more. I know I will be devastated if something goes wrong because of my own stupidity

I do agree!! Lots of research is awesome. Look up spawn logs, ask some of the breeders on here like Mr V or even OFL, and quite a few others.... Find what works for YOU. I find the "shock method" for breeding, for me, has resulted in 4/5 successful spawns (even if daddy ended up an egg/baby eater!)

Only problem I would have is getting live food to feed them while conditioning them.

Can you get frozen? If not, go for high protein foods =D I think the first spawn I did... I had freeze dried and pellets. And both did pretty good... This time I used frozen bloodworms, pellets, freeze dried, and mealworms.

If you can get mealworms, gut-load the mealies, chop off the head and let th betta get the meat out will you hold the shell. Nasty, but they love it.

I know Petsmart sells mealworms. *Shudders* Then there the food for the fry.

Microworms I got online from ebay, and never had a problem. Ask someone from on here perhaps... I got online from ebay: decapsulated brine shrimp, fairy shrimp eggs, microworms... and from a store here frozen bloodworms (mini) work for my month old... But he is fairly big for his age xDD

My SIL said she would buy me stuff if I pay her back. :) So I will ask her when the time comes.
