I am so glad I read this, I am not ready for this! O.o, thank you so much for making mistakes that I learned from. Truly it is very helpful. Maybe in a couple of months I will be ready, in the mean time I will focus on reading the spawn/breeding logs.

Cool

The divider should be higher, or the water should be lower....

She jumped a 3/4 inch inch divider, out of the water. I really did not think she would clear it..... now it's 1.5in... not taking anymore chances. Apparently Sunny wants to be a showjumper! :D

Cool

I put a male in a jar, and turned of the light for the night.

Woke up the next day, jar is empty... I found him under the table kinda dry like a potato chip. so I tossed him into the jar.

At first I thought he was a goner, then I saw some movement.... after an hour he was kinda wiggling.

He is still alive and very healthy... Amazing what these animals can take!! And I have a new respect for their jumping abilities...

And just a pet store betta...

Jeff.

You should never put them in small containers (i.e. jars) without a lid of some sort. I've had bettas jump a full 4 inches vertically and over a barrier.

So today I went to the TFS and they still lacked to have Java Moss. "It will be here on MONDAY" they told me. So I got another type of floating/planted plant. It will only be in there for a few days before I plant it in gravel. (Ok?)

QUESTION!!!!
-For the fry: what kind of lighting should I be using?
