Dom, post pics of your barracks! Curly, you too if you have one! I'd love to see how you guys are doing these because someday I want to construct one of my own.

Err, sorry, realize I just totally went off topic. >.<

So mr vamp
Your just sticking with the hmpk then
That's a bit to small for the hm
So u have a overflow in each compartment or just one main one in each tank
Or it's all one long tank like the old school betta display tank???
Personally I hate those
It keep the water clean(water come out one end n leave on the other end with a little gap on the bottom of each divider) but u have no way to keep them from seeing each other
Your going to over work your fish
Plus u can't put a fish on the first compartment
I like the beanie baby container
Little more work(more like a lot of work) n a few extra dollar(each container is like $4 n a lot of white paper
U can control the fish
If your planning to do this long
Don't go cheap
I'm not telling u to build everything at once
Just have mind set on how much u want to hand for day to day n space limit
Then build it to the limit where u can handle n size limitation
Then slowly add the container
In a few years u will have more then u can handle
I stop producing massive quantity
The work out weight the liking of the fish
The only way u can sell a lot of fish
Is do multiple breeding with quality fish
Only pick the best looking to sell(hold back one or two pair for future breeding)
Cull all the other it just taking up space,time n food

I tear down everything a while back when I quit raising betta
Just start raising again last fall
I'm debating on if I want one or not
But it leaning more toward not
Cause if I do
I'll have a thousand plus betta within a year
Line of hm
Line of hmpk
Line of my cross fish
To maintain nice fish u need a extra line of fish to cross
Like heavy branching fish n dt
Now
I'm more into dogs
So I just spit my 125 gallon tank
Just keeping 12 adult fish
Breed here n there n keeping one or two or maybe none
Limit the amount off spring from each spawn
20 tops cut off date is 4 week old

Yeah, that IS a lot of work to have that many bettas. Can't say I blame you for leaning toward not having a barracks and breeding.

With the barrack you want to put nice looking fish in to look at
Then u want a lot of colors so u won't be bored looking at them
What's good if u have a barrack that's hold 100 fish that all look the same
Cause By the 10th fish u will be bored cause it will seem like u look at the same fish
Then u want different fin type
With just one color U can have up to 10 plus fish for breeding
Male n female hm, hmpk hmdt and Hmpkdt
With a barrack
Breeding get kind of addicting
Slowly but surely u will end up with a lot of fish
If u build one
