A little while ago I made a thread asking for advice and asking questions on breeding since I do plan to breed sometime soon. I'll be posting a journal thing if/when I decide to. I plan to do it sometime in September-but if my mom lets me I could try this summer-but I don't think there's enough time because I'm moving next week for the summer, and we're coming back in late August-and I can't move fry, it'd be too stressful.
I've done my homework for months on shipping and breeding.
I don't really want to start a line until I've moved for good. Which is next summer; that's when I get my own fish room.
So-my question is, what should I breed? I didn't get enough suggestions on my last thread so I'm going to try again. What color(s)? I've already decided to try Halfmoons. I've chosen my supplier, they have Bettas of every tail type and pattern and I've worked with them before.
I made a list of what I should get, could you guys tell me if I need to add anything? (Check means I have it already) Thanks-
Airline Tubing (x3)
A 10g Breeding Tank [Check!]
A 30g Growout (I know 20 is reccommended-but by September I'll have my 30 free, the bigger the better!) [Check!]
Two Plastic bottles for Microworm Culture [Check!]
One of those bubbler pump thingies for Culture [Check!] (Forgot the name-but I have one xD)
Mason Jars [Check!]
Shelves to put the jarred Bettas on [Check!]
A Sponge Filter
That's it I believe? Besides shipping supplies-I'll take care of that when the time comes. So to recap-here are some of my questions since I'm not experienced with Breeding(but I want to be ;-;):
What colors should I attempt breeding for? Did I list everything I need?
But for colors, I'm thinking of breeding a platinum white and a jet black to see what kind of blackxwhite bettas I'd get-since I have an obsession with YinYang :D.
Ooh-also-if/when I ship em, what size bags should I get? Any suggestions on where I should get them?
I feel like a hyperactive child xD
