this forum is notorious for shunning first time breeders. i guess they want to stress the importance of preparedness.

During conditioning, you feed the pair rich, nutritious foods like bloodworms and brine shrimp. This helps the female to develop her eggs. During this time, the male should start working on a bubblenest.

conditioning is letting the male and female get to know each other

Please be nice, Bernice. I would like you to know I do have a life. Bettas is a hobby for me, that keeps my stress down. I got my first one after my dad died, and whenever I have a particularity hard day or week, I usually end up getting one. I intend to pursue Marine Biology in college, so eventually, fish will be my life. I'm not trying to be rude. I'm trying to explain. Just a few minutes ago you asked what a bubblenest is, telling me that you're an extreme beginner. Jumping into breeding headfirst is not a smart move. I'm going to go now, and hope you understand that we're not trying to be mean, just trying to explain.

I don't think anyone is trying to shun anyone here. I think the point is, like andakin said, stressing the importance of preparedness.
And please, let's not start world war 3 here.

You think that collecting fish is stupid, and yet you want to breed them? Breeding bettas pretty much IS collecting them.

OK, I'm going to try and explain some things here.

We are NOT trying to make you look stupid. We are NOT trying to be mean. We are just making sure your not doing it "Just for fun" or to "See what happens". Look, It makes me mad when people come to this forum asking for advice, and then getting mad at us for trying to help?

Sorry to be harsh.. But I'm just trying to get my point across. So, if you would like help, and will take advice politely, feel free to ask. :)
