Breeding without Live Food

The local breeder who I just bought some fish from doesn't use live food (other than Infusoria) for his fry, I was amazed by it lol he's going to tell me everything he does and I'm going to try it for my first spawn. His 5 month old fish where HUGE(Biggest female bettas I've ever seen), and I got to see some of his adorable two week old fry, and some older fry as well.

He uses Atison's Betta Starter, and Hikari First Bites when would be eating microworms and brine shrimp.

Wish me luck, I'm going to start breeding them next Wednesday if I can decide on a pair XD

I'm supposed to use Artisons Betta starter first though, I'm not sure if they can eat the first bites from day one.

The first bites where super cheap at my petco, like $2

lol I had to ask XD

Unfortunately no, the only reason I know of this breeder is because I happened to see an add and go to a random pet store to see their Bettas, then talked to the owner to get me in contact so I could get females. I was just really lucky. There are a lot of breeders on this site though, you should go to the breeding or Betta chat section and title it "Any breeders in Socal" and someone might pop up, That's what I would do :D

I guess fry will eat that stuff if the breeder used it successfully.

His fry also grow really fast too which kinda surprised me, I thought without out the live food they would have problems, but instead they grow really fast.

I have read that it's more successful if you give the Fry's powder food right when they use up their yolk sac
