I want to ask... why would you be putting bettas in plastic cups? Don't we condemn pet stores for doing that? lol Mason Jars are like 12 for $6.. much more room.

Ok, I was thinking something like this http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...005&1311879000 Because I thought it would be cheaper. If mason jars are 12 for $6 than I will look into that. I had thought of plastic cups because I don't want to spend a lot of money and I had heard of people using them on this forum.

Also, when you (In general) bred for the first time, how many fry made it to adulthood? I'm just wondering how many fry a beginner like me might have on hand. And what was your setup/procedure? Thanks!

My first two spawns I didn't get any fry. One spawn was very small and I lost the survivors to velvet, the other I had 12 fry but when I moved they all died... most likely they were too young to deal with the water change.

My first 'successful' spawn I had 13 fish.

I lost my first spawn to a power outage . There were around 20 fry. I took a break from bettas for a few year but have got back in to them over the past year (understatement ). I've purchased a few bettas off Aquabid and I'm about to attempt to start breeding again. I plan on doing an outside spawn, the more natural way you could say. I live in the south so the weather is just right. I have a couple 7 gallon feed tubs for spawning and a 35 gallon water trough for a growout. I've spent as much time at Tractor Supply as I have at Petco, lol.
