I'm afraid I don't. See, I fail at growing any type of plant and I have no access to anyplace with Java Moss/Fern or anything simple like that...

oh that sucks because anabius works great and so does java fern it requires little to no light and it will help keep the tank clean and it will provide oxygen as well. And on top of that all it provides infusoria which the fry can live off for quite some time before they need brine shrimp

Yup, but my LPS doesn't carry anything like that :/ And by the time they could get it in, my fry would all be out of the breeding tank....I really wanted to get some, but, oh well....

Well you could get some for next time if you plan for a next time! I have several breeding tanks so i can breed multiple bettas at a time, and i keep the ones that i like best and sell the rest to the pet store i work for

Hopefully so! By then they may be able to at least order it for me....
Ahh, yes, can't afford another breeding setup however. This one was actually created out of a tank and heater I already had. And I doubt I'd have the time for more then one anyway

Haha, yeah, I have two pretty expensive hobbies so I have to sort of split funds between them and not always get what I want....like I'd love to have another breeding setup and a proper light for my Sorority, but I need a few things for some new costumes so those will have to wait for some other time....

Breeding sounds really intresting after a while after I get my bettas I might try breeding the thing is that I dont want is to make a wrong dicision and have somthing happen to the fry. I might not be able to find good homes for them!
