BREEDERS: Cleaning jars

How do you clean so many jars? Do you have a schedule? Do you do it every day?

I have 233 fry from one spawn, and have 72 jars. Looking at the 72 jars that is a LOT of jars Any tips, tricks, etc? I'll probably get one of those 17 gallon buckets to hold aged water to do water changes with

It's simple. Just a bit time consuming. Hold a net over the mouth of a jar (better to use hands to prevent the spread of sickness through contaminated net) dump water out quickly and then fill jar back up with aged water. Each jar takes about 30 seconds

On the betta farms in Thailand they have trays they dump the water onto that will drain it and hold the fish. The fish just hang out on them until the jars are refilled :P

What about shock? Or unless the temperature is the same and the new water with 0 ammonia won't shock him.

I've never actually had a problem with many bettas getting shocked from 0 ammonia, or a slight temperature difference (by a degree only preferably). Plus, the room I have for them is heated, as will be any larger tank holding water (the fry's 40 gallon still has a heater despite being in a heated room)

No, I wasn't doubting your frys' care from you. I was actually asking a question. ^.^ But it's great that they're well taken care of. I wish I had a fish room. -.-
What tail type was your pair from this spawn?

lol, a question about that thailand way, or just a general question? ;p I would make sure those jars are cleaned daily (ooohhh what a chore) to ensure ammonia does not build up to scary amounts :) otherwise, they could very well get shocked from going from... a pet store cup of 1.75, to 0.

The fry are from a Halfmoon x Doubletail geno spawn. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CxNjnC9u4U&feature=plcp
This is a video of them, eating their decapsulated brine shrimp :) I've got so many x.x Won't be long until jarring is a must.

Oh, each jar holds between 2 and 8 cups (full to the brim).

Oh, that is okay. Should have seen the faces of the people at the outlet store as I grabbed four boxes of jars, plus asked if they had any more bigger ones in the back "I can fish. I MEAN, I jar fish that I breed. I breed bettas." THAT was my explanation
