Breeding my betta

I have done weeks and weeks of research and I have just one question about the supplies needed. I have read so many articles about what supplies you need and almost all websites have different supplies. Anyone know of a good list of supplies for me to use?

Supplies are going to be different for each person, best thing is to have a little of each on hand and see what works for you. Then get the supplies that work. I bet your talking about what to feed fry? That confuses the blue clue out of me!! I'm just asking my local breeder for mentor-ship if I decide to breed, and use what she uses.

Hope you can figure it out :)

Mainly all you need is a heater, thermometer (REAL ONE), 10-20gal tank, and fry food (live is best- such as walter worms, banana worms, vinegar eels, baby brine shrimp, daphnia...)
I use a rubbermaid tub (about 40 gal. long) as a breeding/ grow-out tank.

If you have any other questions about the process, feel free to Private Message me :)

when their little they are too small to eat blood worms, you have to use teeny weenie food like microworms. and variety is important :)

Freeze dried blood worms shouldn't be a part of any betta diet! Just as snackies! ^^
Feed your pair FROZEN blood worms (let them thaw). Mine love 'em! :D

Betta fry need smaaaaalll foods.. like I posted above.

Where or how do you get all these microworms? I've never really seen them anywhere. One day, I would like to breed a pair but, food for the fry makes me nervous.

You can buy them online from aquabid.com BasementBettas seems to sell a lot of cultures on there .... I think some members on here might be selling them, you might have to ask around.
