I agree with doggyhog and oldfishlady about breeding. One of our members likes to say research until your brain hurts. lol

Haha.. I've been researching breeding for over a year now and still haven't spawned. IMO you really have to have a goal for what you want out of the spawn, you have to know the genetics behind the spawn, and you have to know where you are going to find homes for the fry. Bringing new life into the world is a big thing and should be taken very seriously.

Exactly. :)

I have been researching for almost a year too. I have spawned mine, but the male ate the eggs. I might try again if I can make sure this isn't a disease that killed Jello and colette.

For me, researching includes time. Wait at least a few months. If this is your very first betta, then definitely wait longer. I agree, a week is nowhere near enough unless you're that kind of ready-to-go person. You need to know the best ways to heal a fish quickly. Have cycled tanks at the ready. Have lots and lots of money at the ready, and lots of room. Understand that medications aren't the best way to go most of the time. Etc, etc, etc. It's not like breeding platies.

Having bettas for an extended amount of time allows you to get more one-on-one experience with them, because they DO have different personalities. They're not all the same (which can make it more difficult). Learn the difference between a shy betta and an outgoing betta, etc, etc, etc.

Hypothetically speaking, what if you are succesful? Will you have room for 20 males? And a large sorority for the other females? Maybe even two sororities? Where will they go? I'm just giving situations. I'd rather not hear you get in trouble from breeding (I've seen it many times before).

Sorry to seem so straightforward! Just want to make sure.
