Heehee, I keep finding my way back to the breeding section of the forum :) Oops! I'm sorry, I love looking at all these spawn logs and getting to see little babies! Plus I'm addicted to learning this stuff :) You'd think I was interested in breeding these guys from all the reading I've been doing! Still don't even have one fish yet, LOL! (Don't worry though, I know I stick my nose into random areas of fishy research, but it's all for the love of figuring it out, I'm not going to go headfirst into bettas and start off breeding or anything the second I get one! I just like being informed in the case of any future emergency, especially if it ends up someone I know DOES jump off the deep end into breeding and they do it wrong, maybe I can help prevent mistakes and fishy lives lost!)
Smart. If only more people were like you our poor bettas wouldn't be neglected.

Anyway a few years ago I promised I'd never breed bettas..........ya well y'know the rest. LOL.

Im going to take everything out of my closet and add 4 more shelves (I already have 1). And take off my doors. That'll be my mini fish room. Big enough for 2 spawns at a time.

Plus I placed some cups in the shelf today and it fits 20 cups across and its far back so I could put a spawning tank on the exsisting one.

why dont you get one of those big metal shelfs like 1fish2fish has? that would be easier and where are you going to put your clothes?lol

Because I don't have room in my room for those :( I already have 2 bookshelves and a desk. IDK where I'd put one unless I put a smaller one in my closet.....

Oh and I already have a place where most of my clothes are anyway LOL.

I've always been short :P On the first day of school I saw a sixer (sixth grader) who's new and hes freakishly tall....as an 8th grader my option of bullying is shot lol jk.

If anyone else has any more jar option that would be awesome.

32 ounces is too small, it would only be 0.25 gallons, and they need enough room to swim and grow in. Especially since male bettas are territorial.
But if you find jars/cups that are bigger than that it would be fine. The pickle jars come in really big sizes, up to 2 gallons, that's good.
Also, in plastic cups you wouldn't be able to keep heaters in it or much room for plants and gravel. They could get bored.

I do think this is a good idea though, just find ones that are big enough. (At least 1.5 gallons, 2 - 2.5 is much better.)
