For starters in breeding, I know a lot. I have't had a spawn because I only have one betta, but I
know enough to get some people to get a good spawn. Let us start, but first I need to say this is like
Breeding bettas but you can share your tips here and I have an breeding challenge, so lets get our
-a 10 gallon tank or bigger, this is where the bettas will breed
-two other tanks for the male and female, before and after they breed
-your two bettas, one girl one boy
-food, water conditioner, a sponge filter, plants, a place for the bubble nest, micro worms and VE
(that is correct, right?), lots of jars, heater, test kit, thermometer, etc.
This is most of the stuff. If I forgot something please correct me. Now the steps, remember, all the
betta babies will not live, some will and some won't.
Set up the tank. Put plants and smooth rocks on the bottom. You may put decor too. Now slowly pour
or use a hose to place the water in the tank. Let the water age for 1 day to reduce shock and stress.
Heat it to 78-80*F in the ageing process. The petstore cup will be useful to get your betta in the tank
and feel better lol. The male first. When the male is in his breeding tank safely, put the female's by it.
This will encourage him to build a bubble nest and get the female ready. After he has been in there
for a week and is ready, put the female in her cup and float it. Now your male betta is really ready.
Do the petstore cup method and get the female in. Get ready for possibility of nipping and tearing
fins. Soon in a few days or less, they will finally get under the bubblenest and embrace. The eggs
will be put in the nest and you should wait a day to see if they are done. They eggs will start
hatching and you will see tails. Little white tails. Clear to be exact. When they start swimming in 1-3
weeks remove the male betta. Soon they will grow, but some will die. After you can clearly tell boy
from girl separate them. Now you can sell some and keep others. Good luck!
If this is missing stuff, please tell me. Post it here to make this correct. Now time for the betta
breeding challenge! Try to breed to get a red betta. Easy peasy. No certain tail, just a red betta.
This challenge changes every month so you can enter this one or see the next. I am not forcing you
to breed, just a challenge. I did not copy and you can paste pics here and more tips.
Lots of plants means more bettas! True or not?
They can hide more but they are harder to count. Please comment!
