Why do female crowntails produce more eggs than other types???

Ive noticed that female crowntail produce more eggs in a shorter amount of conditioning than halfmoons, plakats etc.
Why is this?

This is not true,my cts lay as much as my pks.This is maybe because of the conditioning period or the amount of food you gave.

IMO you just got lucky. Though I haven't worked with CT too much, but I can say that they average the same amount of eggs. IME the largest amount of eggs/hatch (I counted fry) was traditional PK (fighter type); 1300+ While VT only reached a maximum of almost 1200. Modern types average around 1000, the smaller modern types averaged around 700-800.

I'm not sure about conditioning time though. My bettas are always fed live/frozen foods. So they are always conditioned.

I think that film is the saliva the males use to make the bubbles.

IME, white film is from debris in the air. During dry season my water quickly builds this film but not in the wet season when it's extra humid. Once fry are free swimming you could set air pumps to 1 bubble per second or two - this will reduce the film. And when fry are bigger, set the pumps at a stronger rate.

When you do water changes try scooping out the surface of the water as well as the bottom. If the film gets too thick, dip a bottle in it and slowly pick it up. The film will stick to the bottle.

IMO this film isn't harmful as long as it's thin.

I heard you can place a piece of newspaper on the surface of the water,after 1-10 seconds take it out.

I use a syran wrap piece to cover the top leaving spits uncovered fo air of course. Laves it humid and I found there was less protein sludge at the top of the water. Using paper similar to newspaper (newspaper has ink remember) or paper towel works :)

I had a VT lady, Meagan, who had spawned a few times (she had pretty good finnage, and I lacked a female of other tail types...) and next to Madamme my old PK, she gave the second highest amount of eggs. My crowntail I have no idea.

Do the same for all tanks and barracks.. only no holes. I try to keep the humidity condensing back into tanks insead of my windows. Press and seal wrap is the BEST!
