Have you ever/can you breed immediately?

I'm expecting a pair soon from Thailand, from a good breeder - can I plop them in the spawning tank immediately? (gal in jar, etc) The Thai fish seem to come already well conditioned, and was just wondering if anyone has done it?

Hmm I'd at least do the introduction stage but drag it out a few days so they can settle in after the stress of shipping

Right, I was thinking along those lines. Maybe not immediately, give them a week to settle in and then start the spawning process

I think that you could pull it off in a week :) maybe if you mimic their natural habit like using a npt or more natural method you might have more success

I wouldn't immediately breed Thai bettas. Give them at least a week or so to adjust. Remember that they should have fasted for about 3 days or so. And males don't usually eat during breeding (some do). So it would be too much for him.

I might give them a few days and feed them up really good but I like to spawn them ASAP. If they're already in condition and settle in quickly there's not much reason to re-condition them.
