how do i keep down the size of the spawn?

I really want to breed my betas, but since I don't have room for over 200 baby fish, I need to keep the size of the spawn down. Maybe 10 to 20 babies at the most. I would probably keep 2 -4 and relocate the others. I just can't handle 200+ baby fish. I know one of my friend wants one, and another 2. if I had a group of 20, kept 4 females and a male, thats 15 left, If the 2 friends take 3 in all, that would leave me with twelve baby betas. Any ideas as to what to do with my baby fish? ( tips please on breeding)

haha good luck with that! You cant "Downsize" babies! You either can afford to breed bettas, or you cant.

Thats like telling a pregnant mom to stop being pregnant.

sorry if i came off as rude!

Totally fine! I was thinking after they embraced, and the male collected about 10 eggs, I could take the female out?

If I were you I would wait until you are older and have a home of your own. Right now you don't even have control over your relatives harming your fish!

Look, breeding isn't simple as 1,2, and 3. You'd have to research and research to find what spawning method you're going to use. Do your Bettas even have proper form? Or are their tail types different? Do you have all the fry foods as planned? Or even all the jars for the males and aggressive females? Fish are fish. They lay eggs. That can go over 500! You shouldn't breed yet. I'm still researching on form and I highly doubt you even know what stunt hormones are..

Ok. I got my betas from walmart, and all i have gotten I have quarantined to make sure they were healthy. I have a
