Little hesitant to breed..

I have a few questions about breeding bettas. I have a male and female in a divided 10 gallon tank. If I bred them, could I still use the divider and have the male on one side and the fry on the other? Is that enough room for them to grow in until I can tell the sexes?

Can you just grow the fry up on crushed bloodworms (freeze dried), or crushed betta bits?

Also when the males become aggressive do you just put them in jars like the petstores do until you can find them a new home?

And who do you mostly give your new bettas to? Friends, petstores? Thanks

you should have more research before you really go about breeding. however, if you are only asking....

usually fry need a full 10 gallon to grow out or more if there are more fry. fry need brine shrimp as soon as they begin free swimming. you put males and females in jars when they get aggressive, not just female fry. idk about the giving them away part as ive never breed, but i am curious about that too.

I would definitely do more research and I wouldn't breed until you are sure you know what to do.
