Good to hear that. So many people just throw them in a gallon bowl, let them spawn then come on here and say "my bettas just spawned in a gallon bowl, I've got fry now and I have no idea what to do next or what to feed them! " So its great to hear that you are prepared. :)

We aren't trying to be rude. We just want to make sure that you are prepared and informed about breeding.Its a big responsiblilty. You said you've done your research and thats great. So you know what to expect when you get over a hundred fry and you know how to feed them and house them.

i do have a question though before i breed them if my female, ever gets big and her white spot shows up, what to feed my baby fish a web site said inforsia but i have no idea what that is and some people say egg yolk or newly hatched shrimp. not sure where to get the newly hatched shrimp though. the lady at the pet store said to not put anything in the tank when i breed them like rocks. the breeding itself seems easy when they are ready. but taking care of the babies is going to hard to save everyone. i have 3 tanks one for the female and one for the babies and one for the male when its time to take him out. and i have a heater cause it says to put a heater in their tank. so i did.

Infusonia is like microscopic protozoa. I have no idea how to grow it. The fry need to eat live food. You will need a 20 gallon tank for breeding.

If you haven't got the live food worked out yet, then your not ready to breed them yet either.
It can take weeks to get infusoria growing.
If you had done the research like you claim, then You should have known that and had it grown, or other live food ready before you even attempted the mating...
your talking like you don't have that worked out yet, Yet your ready to mate them??

Ya the Rude one returns...

You need to get the details worked out first before you ask about why the female has not got eggs yet,
You wanna be glad she doesn't yet.
once you get eggs and if the male does his thing correctly you will have young fry within 24 to 48 hours!
Wheres the food for them now.

it said that it only takes about 48 hours for infusoria to grow
And I assume you have grown it then?

I have and it can take up to two weeks to grow if your lucky.

Some manage to get it in 48 hours, but don't necessarily count on that when young are waiting..

I'm not trying to be mean to you, Just trying to help you, But somehow you refuse to listen,
So I guess you'll do whatever you do,

But don't ask for help and then slam someone when they try.. That's being plain rude
