Okay so now the new male has been placed into the breeding tank and i am going to let him get use to his surrounds until tomorrow at that point i will add the female in a hurricane globe until thursday. On thursday i will release her and hopefully this spawn goes better and i have a betta that actually knows how to take care of his eggs and not just eat them.

This male is known not to build bubble nest so but recently he has been doing that in his breeding tank, so i hope when i get home tonight from work he will have a nest if not ill use my other male(the one that ate all the eggs) i will use his nest because he can blow a good nest.

Okay so i decided to post pictures of my breeding setup, i am not currently done working on it but i just got a part time job on top of my full time job at my local fish store so i can get good discounts and stuff. The top 3 tanks are 3 gallon tanks with java fern black gravel, sponge filters and heaters. They hold my 2 black males and my white female. Then every shelf under that contains a 10gallon tank, no graval, with a heater set at 84 sponge filter and a bunch of java fern. The only tank i have in use right now is the bottom tank which has my male and female, which by the way did build a nest. I will be releasing her tomorrow. On the low shelf on the far right i plan to put a 29 gallon tank which i will put all my females. Hope this helps anyone getting into the hobbies and this is just one of the way you can have a breeding setup.
