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 :)
