Thanks tpocicat! I now have a bushy mass of soft plastic plants that I hope will keep the fighting down when the fry grow big and strong. I also got two more silk plants to go in my grow out tank because they were on super clearance :D (8.99 plants for 2 bucks!)

Ok so here is the grow out tank. I'm almost done with it. I want to make a moss/grass wall for one of the sides, but it wont be "full" until I get bunches of grass growing. I think I want to do dwarfs grass with it for length and fluff. What do you guys think? Good grow out tank so far?

How big is the tank? Sorry if it's somewhere else in the thread.

Edit: For your first spawn you most likely won't raise over 100 bettas so the 20 gallon should be fine.

Well it's a bit much but then again my grow outs are bare other than heaters.

20 gallon, half full at the moment. I'm going to do that drip method and add a gallon a day once the babes get in there

I'd move the heater to the bottom of the tank then, since it's sticking out of the water like that it may be a problem if it evaporates too fast and burns.

I can't. It's an older one that has the coils on the bottom and a "water line" mark on the top (IE dont let the water go above here), so the top isn't sealed is what I'm guessing at. I made sure all of the coils were under the water though. I have a similar one just like this in my 5 gal and its working fine. I haven't plugged it in and tested it yet I was going to do that tomorrow when I'm home and can watch the temp.

Thanks. I'm getting super excited to go to bed; the 36 hour mark is tomorrow at 5 AM, and the 48 is at 5 PM *happy dance* I'm hoping I'll either wake up to babies or have babies hatch before nightfall

Ok little cute update. This egg must have fell out of the nest and Walter is trying to put it back into the nest but it just wont stay, lol! it falls, he scoops is up, he spits it into the nest, it falls again. I guess that'll teach him not to let his bubble nest get smaller lol. Also this puts me at ease, he's obviously not eating the eggs if he's desperately trying to save one :P When the egg does fall I see a huge egg sack, a spine and two tiny black eyes SQUEEEE!!!
