yeah ive been asking tons of questions, and i think theyve all been very helpful with me deciding. i thought crowntails and veilteils would be fine for breeding. i really like the mustard gas, but i know you need a male halfmoon. i wanted to just breed this betta i got because i had him and didnt want to buy another male. the crowntail was cheap and she is really pretty and similar in color. i think it will be fine, thank you!
yeah thanks for the posts, i figured i wouldnt get close to what i paid, but it really wasnt that much and i paid it just for the learning experience. what would be the best breed to mix with a veiltale? another veiltale? i see some bettas on aquabid for like 14 plus 15 shipping and they sell, but i am sure those people know what theyre doing a bit better i dont know. as for the fry food, im gonna feed them infusia the first week, then put my baby brine shrimp auto hatcher in there, and then use freeze dried bloodworms and crushed betta pellets. ive researched it all, dont worry.
Well...I've been lurking Aquabid for a while..and I hardly see any bettas in the veiltail section...just one guy selling a betta starter home with supplies you can buy at petsmart, and one guy about two months ago selling 50(?) veiltails in one go, and each individual male averaged to be about $2. If you're going to breed, I would suggest getting a different male.
IMO,you might want to rethink your feeding plans. The BBS is good, however you might want to have several different other live food cultures so you know your fry are getting all the nutrients they need to grow healthy and big quickly. Freeze dried bloodworms and pellets might, though probably won't, be accepted at a young age.
what else do you suggest? i meant after about a month when they are like an inch, i can feed them crushed pellets and cut up dried bloodworms. what else do you suggest i get? i hear feed them off your live plants for the first week, baby brine shrimp until the males are fighting each other, then your normal adult food crushed up...
oh, well around a month is fine for dry foods. I was under the assumption you meant younger. As for other foods, there's vinegar eels, microworms, etc. Have you checked out 1F2F's thread about different sorts of foods? Also, if you want/need to buy microworms and vinegar eels, I think Mr.Vampire sells them.
