Grow out tanks

What do you guys use as grow out tanks when breeding, It doesnt seem logical or plausible to have 100 2.5g tanks so what do you guys do?

I think most people keep the fry together until they start showing aggression. Then you can keep the females together and put the males in their own containers. I think most people use gallon containers, at least until they find homes for them.

I have used half gallons for the over flow of males, But it's one hell of alot of daily work,,,
1 gallons are better, which is what I believe most use for the males once they need to be separated,, But that still entails alot of work if you plan on maintaining them properly.

Do you use like, made for fish bowls, or just large jars or something. Because at the petstore 1g bowls are like $8, so 100 bowls would be an $800 investment which doesnt seem very logical.

didnt you realize how expensive breeding bettas is gonna get?............I wouldnt even attempt such a thing........For me its not the cost factor, its the water changes on all those gallon containers everywhere in my house.........They are beautiful fish, but the cost and the work just doesnt seem worth it to me........Good Luck!

I know it would be expensive but I didnt think it would be a $800 cost, but 50-100 $1 tanks plus 2 containers of fry food and 2 pellet foods at $4 each. Ohh and the food to condition the mating pair but thats basically a one time cost. After I get rid of as many as I can to the local petstores/petco I already have a 10g and 2g that I coulde put any that I couldnt get rid of or any that Id want to keep. But I would need a filter and heater for that. So Im thinking total it'd be about a $150 investment. I dont plan on doing this until I get a job this summer so I should have the money.
