I don't mean to be stubborn, but I'd like to see how it goes with the 5, and if something goes wrong, I have the 20 in a pinch. Thanks again!

Well to answer the question, I usually use three or more pond snails, but this time I'm using two or three mystery snails. They are bigger.

I think my petco has Mystery snails, would these be safe for the fry? I would QT them of course. Wait, 2 or 3? Wouldn't they breed?

i would suggest a 10 gallon for breeding, 5 gallon is pretty small for two betta's but it really depends on the pair, but good luck also try some HBH baby bites am feeding that to my fry from my spawn "Sparta" it's better than hikari (i have both :P i suggest HBH) also my i see the pair your gonna spawn?

Pet store food is actually bad for adult bettas so I don't even know what the fry food is like. The best pellet foods are Atison Betta Pro and Atison Betta Starter (fry food).

Aquabid has auctions that include several cultures for around $20 and some include BBS eggs.

I got mine from the IBC website but I have not seen them in stores. They are cheap at around $6 total for both not including shipping. I'm sure they can be found on Aquabid for cheap.

I, too get my betta food from the IBC site. IMO Atison's Betta Pro is excellent food for adults.

I love AB. I hope to get some VE & MW from there. Can I feed fry blackworms or daphnia?
