I already decided on the Fry Foods and I know it's best for brothers and sisters to mate to get better Fry. Please tell me all you know, and don't worry. I already know about finding homes, culling, and equipment. I want to know all about breeding and be the best breeder in a few months. I know it's going to be a lot of work and money. I just need to know the best techniques and ways to be the best breeder possible. :)
Please tell me anything you can give away and I still have a few months to go. Who even knows if it's still late next year. It depends on my parents. O.O
If you read a lot on here, you would begin to thing that breeding is a futile effort. I have three spawns this year, everyone successful first time.
If you use fish that are old enough to breed, have been properly conditioned, and put them together, nature WANTS to make more bettas!!!
Learn to keep fish, then become a breeder. Having a fish in a bowl does not make you experienced in keeping fish alive. Nothing wrong with a beginner striking out into the unknown, but it is a lot of work keeping 200 fish alive and healthy!
Clean water, not over or under feeding. Right temperature. Sounds simple, but apparently not so if you believe all the troubles on here!!
Best of luck!
