This is where I'll be documenting my first ever betta spawn. I will be using the 10 gallon hobbyist method to breed. I plan to feed egg yolk, microworms, bbs, and eventually bloodworms and crushed high protein pelleted food. I will be diving the spawn between two 10 gallon tanks which will be corner sponge filtered with an apple snail and some water sprite and moss. Both fish are from Korwhord and at my request he has been conditioning them for breeding already. I plan to keep them separated for a day or two and loading them with frozen foods before attempting to spawn, since I'm worried about stress from shipping. Has anyone directly spawned a recent shipment and have some experience they'd like to share?
I chose these for their bright colors, well developed rays in their caudal fins, and marbling. The male has different colored "eyelids" and the female has different colored eyes. I love the males yellow stomach as well.
This is the male:
And this is the female:
I will be posting tons of updates, photos, and possibly questions, although my huge word document of gathered information will be my first resource.
