i wouldn't try outdoor breeding unless you're in a tropical climate or have a heated greenhouse, especially since the weather can be very unpredictable this time of the year.

Agreed on the temperature thing - I know OFL may have experience with this :) Maybe she can give you some tips!!

EDIT: Find a large tub, bin, etc from wal-mart or whatever. I have found a large round tub for 8.00, that was almost 20 gallons. :)

Even OFL takes her bettas in for the winter. Unless you can heat it, I wouldn't suggest it.

Try waiting for the warmer season! I would also try with mature fry or adults first as well as fry can sometimes be more susceptible
