I'm probably going to try your method of putting them in at the same time maybe once because I have seen alot of people posting this method with success. :)

Well....I only have about 50 successful spawns a year with this method with an average of 200+ fry...however, once I cull at 2 weeks- I only end up with 50-60 fry and with another cut at 4 weeks I will get 20+ more or less...that I raise to adults for re-sale...I can't seem to produce enough fast enough anymore-but I look for quality more than quantity....lol....the trick is the set-up design, understanding the triggers, importance of nutrition and water quality for both the breeders and fry......a lot of breeders have little understanding of the what and why something is done the way it is......and still follow the old ways when science and logic tell you different.....

Can you show us one of your tank setup or better yet a video would be awesome! Just recently found out about the method your talking about.

That is long finned Danios that I was spawning at the time of the pic....I use the same tanks/set-up to spawn a lot of different species of tropical fish.

Oh i c very nicely planted fish tanks you have. I can see why your bettas spawn in those tanks very well alot of plants to hide behind for the female to recover after the male chase her.

Wow nice tanks Oldfishlady! I'm really researching breeding Betta's now, I think it would be really interesting to do it someday. Do you recommend using live plants over plastic or silk plants? Is there really much of a difference? I can't seem to find ANY live plants in the Petco or Petsmart near me, and I don't really want to order online. Thanks!
