I am thinking of breeding my betta Lync( he is in my avitar ) anyway is there any way to keep the babies warm cause out here in wisconsin it is so cold in winter (i was thinking of doing it over Christmas vacation), and what do you suggest on cross breeding???

BY the way thanks for the inspiration.

Uhm well I suggest buying a heater lol. They make aquarium heaters, bettas are supposed to have them anyways. But I live in GA and haven't needed any yet. Cross breeding depends I guess. I'm not that great with genetics. I know veiltails and crowntails usually make combtails. I don't know of any others though.
& No problem. =D

A heater will definitely be needed and I think it's a good idea to do it over Christmas break so you'll be home to keep an eye on them. And that gives you time to research until your brain hurts, as MrVampire likes to say. lol If you haven't already done so.

I've got 8 fry that will be 4 weeks on Thursday. =D These guys are doing great. I can't wait to breed again.

Anywho, I fixed up their tank, actually switched them to a bigger one, only a little over 10 gallons. I got the heater in there and I'm keeping an eye on it since it's 300 watts. I have it set on 68 degrees since its the lowest it goes. I'll be slowly adding more water, they'll probably have a full tank by the end of the weekend...

Oh! I have to share my excitement!! I'm going to see Metallica on Sunday! OMG!! I'm so happy. I know it's got nothing to do with fish, but I just found out today that I'm going.

But here's some new pics. I'll have more Thursday for their 4 week pics.



























Gosh they're getting so big!! =D

Yeah the pictures did come out way better and they also have a brighter light. I think they enjoy having a bit more water.

No, I won't know males from females for another few weeks. I haven't noticed any agression yet.
& yes, I know Metallica is amazing.
