Cody, I'd have to disagree with you on that one. I also belong to another forum where people are pretty serious about breeding bettas. From what they have said, I'd say it's more common for around 100 or slightly fewer babies to result from a spawn. I suppose 250 could happen, but I think that's more the exception rather than the normal.

In any event, because of their nature bettas require a good deal of time, effort, and money to breed. People should understand an accept that responsibility before even attempting to breed. I will not say any more because I don't want this to turn into a rant, but I will say that I am glad to see so many people who care and seem to have done their research even if they are not breeding :)

I read in my betta book that there may be up to a thousend eggs but only a fraction survive. The larger the tank, the betterthe chance of more fry surviving.

I've never heard of that....could it be a typo? Honestly, I don't think 1000 eggs could physically fit into one female betta. I'm not critisizing you DQ, I just doubt that is possible ;)

My female betta (the other night actually) released about 100 eggs. She was going to explode with all the eggs she had. She easily could have let out 200+ more is I didn't both her. 300+ eggs is defiantley possible.

I don't know if it was a typo or not but thats what I read. I do know that a male and female will wrap several times before they are fiinished.Yeah, it doesn't seem possible for a female to hold that many eggs. I have never seen my female full of eggs or release eggs.
