W/out knowing the temp.
Is like raising the fish blind.
The temp play a big role.
Anything below 75 will stump the growth
Even with a good diet
How big is the tank

CFB: as you read i have no money :( there is no way i could got another thing unless my parents think it is urgent and they don't have money to spend really, and they think buying a heater isn't really important right now. and am pretty busy on thinking what to feed sparta next and am worried about his bottom fin, as you can see am in stress (personal things too)
and also i know what you mean, i know i need a heater and stuff. and the tank is around a half a gallon or so. sorry if i sounded rude, i didn't attempt to

I know how u feel.
Use to be young n living under my parents roof.
But u can work around it.
If your breeding
Just learn how to raise them up quick with number(150+ to selling size in 4 month)
Choose when to breed(end of spring)
Then try to sell everything at a cheap price(.60-1.50)/trade
Will Keep one or two pair(hold for next season)
With the money u save and trade for fish equipment
U will be set for the next breeding season
Start small
Sad to say but fighter sell a lot easier

I agree with Curly. You really have to start small and progress to bigger things when breeding such things as bettas.

@Curlyfatbottom: Is this true? Why are they so easy to sell? I honestly don't think I would like to support this though. It is sad, but we have to understand that this is part of another countries cultures.

You have no larger tank like a 20 gallon that could be used for grow out? What if he/she had hundreds of siblings? I've said it before and I'll say it again: you MUST have ALL the proper equipment BEFORE you spawn your fish. Yes spawning and breeding is fun and tempting but without self control and patience this happens.

Trying not to sound rude. But we have all been in this situation before.

Yes
For the blood sport.
Younger kid buy them since there cheap.
Easier to take care of.
Plus if you can produce a good line.
The male will have a lock price
From 20-50 each for all the male(10-150 male in each batch)
Female usually cull or chop up.
Since most breeder believe the female carry the good gene
They rather kill then sell
Even when people are will to pay top dollor for them
