question about jarring fry

Okay so my little guy is around 5 weeks old (only survivor) when do I remove him to his new home though? At what age should jarring be done? I would like to try a new spawn again after he is all settled. I bought him a small tank to house him in rather then a jar.

If you only have one fry you can jar him at any time. There is no right or wrong time to jar most of the time you wait until the fry start fighting but you don't have that problem LOL

Ahaha oh okay thankies!! I am just concerned about water changes I know that fry are a bit more sensitive I am thinking at 8 weeks I might give him his own little tank :) I am so excited he is finally getting some color...he looks like he could have a greenish or bluish tinge to him like his mom.

Fry are stronger than we give them credit for. At 8 weeks old he should be plenty old enough to be jarred. :)

okay thanks! I bought him one of those small betta tanks instead of a jar for now so it'll have a top and everything (until I can add he or she to a good tank). I am wondering should I do complete water changes? or partial?

What size is the tank? Unless you have a sponge filter I would go ahead and do full water chages. Most breeders keep their fry in small(ish) jars and do daily water changes.

If its a 1 gallon or larger you could get away with doing water changes every other day. Just remember the cleaner the water, the nicer his fins will be.

oh okay this would be the size of a 1/2 gallon jar but I like having a top on it to prevent my cats from going near the water. So I will do daily water changes then thanks a bunch!

Each spawn is different, As soon as i start seeing aggressive behavior i jar them. Which is male's the females live together in a 29 gallon untill they sell. every now and then theres a aggressive female you have to jar but most of the time they live together for ever. untill they sell and all the male's slowly get taken out as they show that aggressive betta behavior. But each spawn is different.
