Starting to condition

Currently I have one male and one female red plakats. They are currently not heated due to lack of space but the temp stays between 75f and 81f in the room they are in. Here are a few pictures of their temporary tank and the plakats:



In the next week im purchasing a ten gallon for breeding, i have a 55g opening up for the growout. I started feeding frozen blood worms today. I think ill do that for three weeks and get them in the heated tank. Ive read the articles and have had my other bettas breed in the past. But never plakats. Say I breed these fish, and i see the offspring; would this be worth any profit?

It's possible. Plakats are usually a pretty wanted fish- I've seen a lot of HMPK's out there! And personally I love them! Your male is gorgeous!

Well if you don't put anything but a bloodworm or two in there per day eventually she'll get hungry enough and come around.

Haha I have one young female who tried microworms for the first time and wouldn't eat anything else for like a week. I felt so bad, but I had to fast her until she ate her normal food.
