I know you can purchase brine shrimp eggs at most pet stores... but I would be doing a lot of research about breeding bettas before you attempt it. I've heard it can get very pricey and time-consuming. You also need the space to keep them once they are jarred separately, and you need to have homes to bring whatever adults you're not going to keep.

Infusoria is the little micro organisms that come from live plants.

Snails and live plants both produce infusoria

Or you can buy it bottled, Interpet I believe do a bottle of it.

Brineshrimp should be available in petstores, frozen or freeze-dred...for live, the only method I know it to hatch them yourself.

Infusoria simply comes from live plants!
