I've always loved bettas, but never had room for more than one or two. However, I'm probably going to be out of the house in a few years, and I think that I might try my hand at breeding. Anyway, after reading the stickies, I had some quick questions.
From your experience, about how many fry were hatched, and how many survived to adulthood? I just want to get a general idea of how many babies I'd be taking care of.
How large of a tank would you recommend?
Do you sell your bettas for profit or give them away? If you do sell them, how do you decide their price?
How specific are you when selecting your breeding stock? Do you use only fish with the exact color and finnage that you want, or are you a little flexible?
Would it be alright to use pet store bettas for my first spawn? Would no one be willing to take or buy the babies from me?
That's about it haha. Just trying to get a feel for what breeding would be like.
