I have a question... When my fry are 10-12 weeks and I need to separate them I plan to put them in containers and give/sell them. how do I keep their water temp. the same/ where it needs to be which is 80-82f? Our house ranges from 66-72f I have heaters for my 2 tanks (for my adult betta fish)and I am going to get a heater for the breeding tank as well.

Get a tub/tank, put a heater in that then fill with water. Then put your jars, bottles, whatevers in to the tub and they will stay nice and warm

This is how I separate mine:


A large plastic tub from Walmart, 32oz Deli Containers( got them fairly cheap on Ebay,tub can hold 22 containers, you need 44 for each tub.
Put holes in half the containers,slide them in containers with out holes.
When you change their water, pull out the container with holes in it and put in a new container with out holes and treated water( I have 5-5gal buckets with heated water to put clean water in the new Deli container),total Deli containers needed=66 per tub.
The dividers are silicone cutting boards, cut to fit(also from Walmart).
Keep an eye on the water in the tub, so it does not expose the heater.
You can use jars or whatever in place of the Deli containers, I just use them because they make changing their water easy.

I think most breeders breed in about 6 inches of water. You don't want it too deep for fry.

If they're ready to breed they should bothe be flaring and showing off for each other or flirt swimming as Indjo calls it.
