got 2 new fish, im a freak, lol

Sup everyone, im addicted to fish, lmao, everytime i go to the lfs now i come back with a fish. Today i went to the lfs and came back with a red tail black shark to put in the tank along with my betta, platy, 3 zebra danios. I also got a female betta and put her in a tank by herself. Im going to make the male and female bettas have babies. Supermans been making a bubble nest, how would i go about doing that? Put superman in her tank until they do what they have to do and then take him out or what? need some help.

as soon as the eggs hatch get both fish out of there otherwise they will eat each other or go to ur LFS and get a net breeder and put the babies in the netting and leave the female in there

well its kind of sick but u need to have a bunch of them die somehow i mean you have to think how many new betta's you want and u can take care of. so u need to have some get eaten by the female and others in ur other tank. just put some of the babies into ur community tank so they can have a snack
