I am a breeder but a novice one, I just finished my first spawn and I think it came out spectacular.

here is a link for a thread showing the males from the spawn at 10 weeks old

http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=117146&page=3

they are now 14 weeks and look even better and they are all housed in the same containers.

I now have over 50 fish housed in a barracks style using those containers, the fish room is temperature controlled so the temp of the containers stays at a steady 76 to 78 degrees. I clean the containers every 2 days and do not over feed.

The reason for my post was to try and maximize my husbandry efforts so as to not leave any stone unturned

I use a hot water and an aquarium scrubbing tool but wanted input from anyone that may have had a more efficient tool for getting into the creases and corners.

Thanks for all the replies :)

The toothbrush idea is a great one, I was thinking along the lines of a baby bottle brush.

My containers are very clean and there is no film or grime build up in two days, my only reason for posting this thread was to see if anyone had a different approach to cleaning similar containers.

I guess I could call myself a breeder, I did have a very successful spawn and have raised 72 fry to adulthood, although it was my first spawn.

I am conditioning a pair for my second spawn now and they should be ready in a week or so.

I would say yes I am a breeder since all my efforts go toward breeding and not just keeping bettas.
