Oh believe me, I know that I'm lucky, lol. I've actually got a whole fish room which most people don't have. I've been breeding guppies and other fish for years now though so I think my parents finally got fed up with all of the tanks scattered around my bedroom. XP

I talked to my mom and she gave me another bucket, the same kind, that my dad didn't want so I'm going to take pictures of how I am setting it all up and of my pair. I will track the spawn on this thread. If this succeeds then it could be considered a new breeding method. yay!

I hope you all enjoy this!

Wow!! You are really lucky that you have your own fish room!! I am lucky I have a fish tank! That must be so cool! Where do you plan to send the fish once they are born?

Once my fish have spent enough time in their grow-out tank/pond I normally sell them to Big Al's Fish Store, some friends I have who are interested, or I trade them with breeders nearby. I want to start putting my fish up on aquabid but I don't know the specifics on shipping out of the country yet so that'll have to wait. I do have homes for any and all fry though so no worries. :) Oh! and pictures will be in my next post!!

Talking Bucket Breeding Journal 1

The Setup
-I have filled the bucket with 5 Litres of Fresh, Dechlorinated Water, 2 Litres of Infusoria Water from my planted aquarium, and 600 mL of banana leaf extract.
-There are two heaters in the bucket, one that is set at 84degrees and the other which is unprogrammable. These keep the temperature between 80-84 degrees.
-I also have some java moss in the bucket to help boost the levels of infusoria.
-Half of a styrofoam cup is also in the bucket so that the male betta can built his bubble nest under it.





Onto The Pair:
Male- Cellophane and Brown Marble Plakat
http://i997.photobucket.com/albums/a...g?t=1296682183

Female- Aquamarine and Red Combtail
http://i997.photobucket.com/albums/a...g?t=1296682183

I'm guessing, now im not a whiz at genetics, that I will get Plakats, Combtail Plakats, Veiltails, and Combtails. MAYBE if I'm lucky I will get a crowntail since the female carries that gene but I'm not certain.
I'm breeding this pair:
1.To test out this breeding method and...
2.To see what kind of colours and tail types this pair will throw at me.

Well I'm expecting blue and red mixes, blue and cellophane marble, red and cellophane marble, mixes of red, blue, cellophane, and brown marble. In terms of tail types I'm expecting comtails, plakats, plakat combtails, MAYBE a couple crowntails. Its gonna be some crazy mixes but I'm expecting some beautiful fish from these two.
I have my fingers crossed that half the babies have the same eyes as their daddy which are a sky blue colour.

You can get more than one tail type from a single spawn? I never knew that!
