and if you cant afford a tank for her id assume you cant afford the necisary things you need to breed them/feed/take care of the fry
just assuming though. you should really get a tank for her, the pop bottles not fair.

I think you can find something MUCH better then a soda bottle. Like a storage bin. You probably have one laying around your house. That is where I got mine. :)

OK, I have to say it... Are you sure your ready to breed?? Because you said that a 12-20 dollar heater was too expensive. I just have to wonder, how the HECK are you going to pay for a breeding set up, food, and everything else you need!? Also, you can't afford a tank for your female.

I'm not trying to be mean, but I'm just wondering how your going to try and do this??

umm well i would NEVER recommend it but u should really try something else.

As much as i despise this idea i would recommend a good sized (vase) but have this as your last option i really do not like vases and if it does come down to it and you have to use the vase then you much NOT ever put a plant with roots on the coming down!! you betta will die if that is done

DH, is it okay to use plastic storage containers? I know they're plastic but could they have toxins in them?

Do you have any plans for the future fry? You're going to have to be prepared for A LOT of separate containers for them when they start getting aggressive. I don't think $50 is going to cut it to be honest.

I think a member, TianTian, counted up the amount of money it would take her to take care of and breed her bettas, and it ended up 400 or something? I'm not positive...

That was with buying and shipping a female betta, but that's still much more than 50 dollars. Ask DH how much it ended up being.
