How can you be good at something if you don't practice? I'm sure every first timers have a question.. even for the experienced one.. If I found myself being not a good breeder then I can tell I must stop breeding..

@turtle
How are you going to react if someone tells you to stop what you are doing? or your a child don't mess up with us.. or maybe your a beginner do it yourself, don't seek for help if you don't know what you are doing.. how?

Put the airstone under the bubblenest and take out the dad if he isn't doing anything. Doesn't matter if the bubblenest get destory the eggs will still hatch are fertile. Make sure your tank is at 80 degree and if you don't have a cover maybe use a plastic bag cut it in half and cover your tank to keep the heat in.

People, please, be civil. This is a forum where we share our common hobby. There's no need to get nasty over some misunderstanding. I'm sure everyone means well........

@drkeni9ma; this is a forum made of betta lovers and will always be against irresponsible actions towards bettas. Please try to understand that and not get easily offended by their assumptions.

If you feel they've misunderstood, simply explain. Please, no provocative comments...... Panthera did say "This may come off as rude to some,..." And Turtle said "Lol we weren't trying to jump on anyone, just trying to make sure they have the right info ;)". To me this implies that Panthera was trying to make an offensive statement polite and turtle was trying to confirm their good intentions.

@To others; try to understand an OP's position (not just drkeni9ma) as a beginner. There are many aspects that articles don't explain. You can read all you like, but you will never know how it really is until you've tried. So please don't jump into negative conclusions. And obviously drkeni9ma was confused because he/she experienced something different to what was explained in articles (the problem might have been that he/she didn't state all the specific confusions earlier - male and female getting along after spawning). How can a newbie know what possibilities to expect and they must read of such aspects. Or how could they know if they've read enough or not. It's our job to explain these things (without judging/provocative accusations) so they would know what info to look for.

Sorry for all this. I simply don't like such disputes in a forum where we all should be like a family, always helping one another - betta loving family.

So because I would like to learn as much as I can before breeding bettas, that means I'm scared of doing it because I'll be bad at it? Tell me where that logic fits in. Anywhere.

I try and learn as much as I can because I know I will be creating lives, and don't want a stupid mistake on my part, to be the reason that those lives die. Yes this is a learning experience and first time spawns usually don't go that well, but why not know as much as possible about taking care of them before you actually have fry?

It sounds like your just defensive because you know we're, in a way, right about this. But they're your fish, do what you want.

Drken, so it's day two, if the eggs were fertilized and you tried to self hatch, they might start to hatch today or tomorrow. If by Sunday they haven't hatched, toss the batch.

No one said this to you on this thread. If someone told me to stop I would ask why. No one has a problem with a beginner breeder, we just want to make sure you have all the necessary information, which you didn't.

The reason that critisism occurs often amoungst the breeding threads is this. You can make mistakes about owning Bettas, keep them in a smaller tank, feed a little too much, etc. And people will be polite and if you listen people are all nice.

But breedng Bettas is way different. It's a very hard task, and it's not something you make mistakes on. It's one of those things where if you don't research completely, EVERYTHING, before hand, then you've just potentially killed hundreds of Bettas. Breeding it's not okay to make some of these mistakes, so that's why people are getting a little angry.

But, let's just all drop this arguement and try to help this member. Good luck with the eggs, and so long as you did your research (which you said you did) I hope they were properly fertalized and hatch.
