thanks indjo and beautifulbetta123.
since there were too many in the 10 gal. i decided to take out the biggest and the majority of the smaller ones and transferred them to grow out tubs. the water is really green but i had guppies living happily in there so i think its fine.
i had read this interview. http://bettysplendens.com/articles/p...source=message
it says the first big bettas aren't usually the best. i am going to try to verify this. i will keep the first 7 in a seperate tank.
i also am keeping 30 in the original spawning 10 gal tank in my apartment.
these are the majority of them after i netted.
they went in this tub.
and the 7 biggest went into this 10 gal
