Old Man is like, "What, another fry? How am I going to get that one back to the bubblenest? Don't think I can give her a ride on my head, either."

And I really love that you bred your bettas because you wanted to their offspring, not for fancy tails or for showing reasons or for Aquabid or something like that. It's a good reason to breed them.

Thanks :) Though i do think Electra may shoot some gorgeous genes into them possibly its not too important, i dont care, I wont be sellin any just giving them out, possibly buying some supplies for others actually, if they need help. But im sure breeding fancy types is fun also. If i didnt have a child id probably try to make it a big big hobby and do aquabid ect, i could see that if i didnt have other responsibilities XD It feels personal to raise these ones though, maybe thats why im being so thorough, i look at little electras fins and oldmans empty bubblenests that he still seems to think babies will appear from and feel the weight of the responsibility :)

Which you are bearing well. Especially considering you have to live up to Old Man's standards. Well, when your daughter is older you could always breed seriously, even if it's several years away. Electra's colors would sell really well on Aquabid or even here on the forum and if you breed her offspring and then their offpsring to keep the line going, you should have some lovely bettas for Aquabid quality breeding. To keep the line going, you wouldn't have to have quite as many fry per spawn either, maybe only 10 or even as few as 5. Breeding sounds like a lot of fun, I wish I had room to try it, I'd love to breed my guy Sherman. He's my first betta and I'd love a fry to remember him by, too.

Its a nice thought, im in therapy for driving/job fear and i was hoping by the time she started school id be better and could get a part time job dealing with animals in some way for a few extra bucks but thats really a good idea. Id really enjoy it, especially knowing it all started with my own personal oldman/electra :)
I felt like you, i didnt have the space, but eventually i made the space somehow, and i limited the spawn also, otherwise id probably have had 100+ hatch =x I can handle 50 but not 100+.
