Before I even got my first breeding pair I read EVERYTHING I could get my hands on about betta breeding, fry development, health, conformation and nutrition. And let me tell you, that is enough knowledge to make a encyclopedia.

Like WetBetta said there is no one way to breed bettas, it is really what will work best for you and keep your bettas and fry healthy and happy. For me it was using the basic breeder setup using a ten gallon filled halfway stuffed with live plants and a few IAL.

Raising this spawn I am now is one of the best things I have ever done, it is so satisfying to see the fry grow from eggs to the vibrant, young fish they are now all with their own personalities.

So the best advice I can give you? READ READ READ! Come to your own conclusions and find what works best with you. Trust me, it is worth the months to learn everything you need to know in order to see a successful spawn.

Have Fun!

-Sincerely

Sell and Pet. I'm thinking about who will take the fish, if they agree to water changes, If they will actually take good care, all those things. I'm thinking Crowntails. But I've heard that they're more aggressive during spawning than others.

Hardness of the water will bend the ray
With long fin they need a bigger holding tank to keep
If your going to sell
Why not breed hm
Cost u the same to raise but hm goes for more on the market
Ct goes for the same price as del
Plus it's a mill fish

CT move faster and appear more aggressive. They are not good sellers and difficult because they need very specific water conditions to keep their fins healthy.

Oh... So not beginner breeder Betta. Well, OK. How about Halfmoons or Halfmoon Plakats? I know a lot that Halfmoons are really popular for the market. I'm not sure if they need more requirements. I mean, they have big fins, too.
