Breeding log: Thai way- CT and VT virgins.

Hey everyone!

Breeding bettas has been a hobby of mine since last year, and i have been fairly successful! I started with the Thai way and have added a few variations along the way. Instead of buckets i use a green colored bin. I use a 1-4 gallon tank, with some string algae, a few live plants, and some saran wrap. I like the solid bin's to keep the bettas focused, i use the wrap for a bubble nest aid, and i keep water from 80-85 (F). The female betta is a crown tail, a whitish bluish mix, and the male is a solid red color.

I like to condition the bettas for 12 hours, and put the male betta in the breeding tank for 30 min before the female, who is in a breeding "trap".

As of now 5/23/13 at 9:50 pm (Az) the female betta is showing vertical breeding stripes and the male is working on the bubble nest. As both fish are virgins, i am not expecting alot of fry. Hoping for maybe 50-100. I hope to get them together by saturday morning, where i can make sure nothing is going terribly wrong ;)

How many successful spawns have you had doing this method? I've tried this Thai method a few times but I've never been successful. Plus its quite difficult to see under the bubble nest for eggs... but I guess using saran wrap will help as its transparent. I might try that next time :)

What do you mean you condition the bettas for 12 hours before releasing them into the breeding tank? Usually it takes 1-2 weeks to condition the pair properly to fatten them ready for spawning.

Hey alunjai!

The last three times i have been successful with this method. As for the conditioning, i guess everyone has their own methods, i usually don't prep them to much, as i plan on them being in the breeding tank together for around a week before i release the female. I also feed live food to them whether or not they are breeding, or condition. And since they are going to be in the tank for a week, i feed live food 1 every 2 days, and use a baster to suck out any garbage before they are released. The bubble nest is also just getting started as they have only been in the tank for the past 4-5 hours.

Perhaps also some Halfsun's but I think that's HMxCT? Either way I'm excited to see what comes of it! Good luck and happy spawning :D
