Thank you for that help Ivandert so nice of your to offer your help and what has worked for you.
I have all my bettas in bare bottom tanks anyways so that is not problem. I have tried before to breed but was not successful but now I have a bit more knowledge and I love to know what works for others as well.
I to am going to use a 5 gal, heater, thermometer, liveplants, hiding spot, betta spa (love this stuff over the leaves) for female, jar to hold her before release, sponge filter ready to go but not on till they are free swimming.
I just have to order some microworm culture. I am going to place my order for that soon so I have it before hand.
Do you use a sponge filter for the fry when free swimming?
What are some of the foods you feed?
I am just trying to track down where exactly this pair came from. The lady whom I bought them from is not being so honest I have found...
