Ok... Well, read the stickies.

To breed, use a half filled 10g at 80 degrees.

I don't know why you mean by products. Water conditioner?

Aquabid.com or local breeders can get you a really nice pair.

For fry, you have to feed them at least three times a day with live food like microworms or bbs. You also need to do water changes at least every second day.

You can sell them on kijiji, Craigslist, aquabid, to other breeders, etc. I really hope you aren't hoping to make money doing this...

Dressagerider101 - Ok so...

I have bred bettas and they are a LOT of work. I don't mean to go on the whole responsibiliy spiel again, but just double check to make sure that you have the time, money, and recources to breed. Spawning can cost upwards of hundred of dollars, and will take up hours of your time. But, I think it is definately worth it.

What are your goals? What kind of fish do you want to breed? Crowntails? Halfmoons? Veiltails? (<--- some will tell you not to breed VTs, but I belive with the proper pair, one can get a good line going) Platkats? Doubletails? Take a look on aquabid.com and see if you can find a string (color or tail type) that you really like. or, would want to breed with. I bred for red Halfmoons.

Be aware, you are going to need LOTS of stuff. and I mean LOTS and LOTS of stuff. Prepare for your entire house to be colonized with betta stuff.

Just a little tidbit to contribute. The best way to learn? Read. Stalk threads, send messages, and NEVER BE AFRAID TO ASK QUESTIONS! :) I still do! :)

-Thomas

I simplified it a LOT. That is the very basic information.

I do want to some money but that's not the main reason I want to breed them and what I mean by products is water conditioner and medicine cuz I read that they pair can get pretty rough on each other

Get Indian Almond Leaves
Those will help with almost everything! They make the pair want to spawn, and will help induce healing. A great investment!

I believe somewhere here it was mentioned that the suuplies for breeding cost about $500 o.o

I want to breed as well, but I'm waiting til I have an actual job and house before doing that xD
