This is the first thread I'll be making on how I've bred bettas using different methods and my experiences.
Well I read about the shallow spawn method here:
Like Victoria Parnell I've had tremendous success with this method.
My setup includes:
4 gallon plastic tub with white lid
1 plastic plant
1 50 watt heater set at 86 degrees
1 piece of almond leaf
I only use about 3 inches of water in my tubs. I no longer use a nest anchor because I prefer to let the male choose his nest site....be it in the front or in the back. I introduce them into the tub at the same time, snap on the lid and ignore them. Within a few hours I have a nest and almost always within 2 days a spawn.
Just thought I'd make a thread on this
I will be using this method outdoors/indoors this summer without the heaters.
