Everything?

Ok so here is what I have to start breeding

Spawning Tank

Grow-out Tank
Two Tanks for the Breeding Pair
Jars for the Males
Medications (fungus stop)
High-quality Food for Conditioning
Heater and Thermometer
Filter
Live Plants
Snails
Light Source
Lid for Tank
Indian Almond Leaves
Microworm Culture
Vinegar Eel Culture
Baby Brine Shrimp Eggs
Rock Salt
An Air Pump Tubing

Am I missing something? I am not going to start breeding until the summer time when school is out and I can pay a lot of attention to my fry. Also what type of betta should I sell? I wanted to do VT's... But I know they probably won't sell well. Plakats are second on my list, do they sell well? Or would it be alright to sell VT's? Halfmoons and CT's are cool looking too! (I prefur halfmoons over crown-tails though) I don't know which to choose!

I'm with you about wanting to do VT's :/ I herd they don't sell well and most pet shops won't take them *sigh* so if you did VT's you'd probaly have to find some friends that would take them, that's what I'm doing sense the male I want to breed (he has BEAUTIFUL coloring) is a VT

I know! I am so tempted to do VT's they are so beautiful! Not to fancy like the crown-tails or double tails... But yeah I don't know any friends that would take the fry. None of them know my betta obssesion.

Lol if we were closer I would take some! XD I love VT's. What I'm doing (I'm all so breeding this summer) is I'm breeding my VT male with a half moon or crown tail female, so I'll have, possibly, some crown tails or half moons as well as VT's.

Do I need microworms? Or is it alright just to have baby brine shrimp? Microworms aren't a problem but it's just another thing I need to look after.

LOL!!! I thought you were going to use the rock salt on the fry! My mistake. Yes for brine shrimp, you will need it.
Some people use only brine shrimp for their fry, I personally like to mix it up and give them a variety. I believe that gives them more nutrients.

Yeah, I think I am going to get microworms started, besides the brine shrimp I am going to mix it up with vinegar eels.. Seems better to have a variety. ;)
