Breeding Questions

Ok to start off I will not breed for A LOOONGG time haha but I'm starting research very early and I had a few questions.

1. What containers would you recommend to jar the fry once they get agressive?

2. Like what would be the fry feeding routine over time. ( like when they're this young you feed this etc.)

3. Also I stumpled upon this thing called a Brine Shrimp Corral an automatic brine shrimp feeder. Would these work to feed the fry?

Thanks for any answers and advice and feel free tell me other things I should know about breeding. Again I won't be breeding for a long time but I want to do my research right

You and I are in the same boat! Though I can recommend Bettyspendens for a good place to start:

Raising spawn:

And I saw these for grown fry last night: http://www.containerandpackaging.com/item.asp?item=B061

Thanks for the links!
What type of bettas are you thinking of breeding?

Also another question is there any type of snail or something like that that could live in the fry tank to clean it?

Also ( sorry for all these questions) has anybody in this website ever use a different method for breeding bettas other than the 10 gallon tank heavily planted etc?

I'm going to start with my VT Cinder (pictured left) and a certain orange cambodian VT that I'm planning to buy from a user on the forum (I just need 4 more dollars! GAH!) http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=43446 There she is. (just scroll down for pic)

I'm not sure about the snails..... you'll have to ask someone else that knows better on that.

Here's an article about Orient-style spawning (but it's not step-by-step) : http://bettysplendens.com/articles/p...?articleid=724

Beautiful Vt Tian! If I breed I will probably try for Halfsuns or crowntails.

Also I really like the orient style spawning but I'm not sure if If I should try it since this will be my first spawn.

I stay stick with the norm for the first time; then try new things later. :)

Hey, check out this setup video; it might help: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vUqY...os=C25GubldJf8

You're welcome! I learned a lot. :)

What are you going to do with your fry once they're grown?
