My book says that 2 or 3 days after you put him in the breeding tank, you can put the female in a quart jar (in your case, a vase) and put it in the tank with the male. Hopefully, he'll already be working on a bubblenest before you put the vase with her in it, in the tank.

Did you already have your bettas for a while before you conditioned them though. Because Im sure yours were already pretty well fed/conditioned before you started your conditioning, my male is fresh out the petstore so it might take him the full 2 weeks, might not though.

Ohh and while I have a thread, does anyone know a more efficient way to feed frozen brine shrimp to your bettas. I put a small chunk in a cup of tank water and stir it until it thaws but I cant get it from the cup to the tank without overfeeding or wasting a bunch. Also, how long can the shrimp in the cup stay "good" like not rotted and stuff.

Ionballer, get a medicine dropper to drop the thawed food into the tank. All you need is to chop off a tiny chunk and thaw it out in tank water.

Ahh, crowntail your so lucky, mine eats some of his food but I cant tell if hes getting it all. Where did you find sundried bbs, is it healthy for them and everything??? Ohh and I like the "Many Fry" addition to your sig I hope they all grow up nice and big.

Ohh and I will try a medicine dropper, how many of those shrimp should they get?

I don't know how big the frozen ones are. The freeze dried ones are pretty big so I cut one in half.
