I need YOUR help.

Ok so I want to start a new breeding operation. I want any ideas, tank designs, WHATEVER you've got for me. What kind of fish should I start with now? I'm actually jumping up and down as I right this :P .

I don't know anything about breeding or what they need, but good luck!! I would love to breed dragon bettas, but I don't have the time or money to put into it.

Ok so I have the plans for 2010 up.

January: Setup a planted 30 gallon for females with built in betta bungalows for the males.

February: Install new shelving in my closet. My mom bought these shelves and put them in her closet that has a bar for clothes underneath. My clothese will hang underneath while the jars wait on top :) .

March: Put in new shelving for 3 five gallon spawning tubs and 5 or 6 growout tubs.

April: Buy new stock (most likely VTs from the LPS) and start conditioning them. Hopefully I'll spawn them in the middle of the month.

June: If all goes well with the VTs I'll move onto CTs.

July: Hopefully by this point I can start ordering in fish from other breeders.

Ok so I'm also making adjustments to my water. Just using Stress Coat and Atison Betta Spa (for disease prevention, pH control, and spawning inducers). I also want to house conditioning pairs in divided tanks (so I'll get three of those when I go shopping to) and I want to get an extra 20 gallon tub with a filter to hold water between changes.

Yikes I got ALOT of work to do!!

For those fo you who have no idea what a betta bungalow is it looks like this:
