Hello! Here I will be posting progress, questions, and results relating to my first spawn. I want to introduce myself first; My name is Logan, I'm 15 years old and live in Boise Idaho. I've had fish since I was 5, and always have been fascinated by them. In August of 2014 I purchased my third Betta, and first in 5 years; Mac. He is a double tail half moon. He got me into Betta keeping. Now, Mid October I have 7 fish. 2 males (Mac; double tail half moon, Pacific; Dumbo half moon) and 5 females (Crystal; Veiltail, Cleopatra; Crowntail Allie; Half Moon, Kali; Super Delta, and a baby betta, I'm assuming is a female; Fio) Anyways, I have a 20 gallon tub set up with 6 inches of water. I have a foam cup cut in half taped to the side, a heater that keeps it at 78/9 degrees, along with a fake plant. For foods, I have infosuria for the first day or so thats been growing for around a week and a half, I also have brine shrimp eggs and a hatchery built, and a microworm culture ready to be harvested. Several of my friends are taking the fish once they're adults, and any fish that I can't home will be taken to Petco for them to sell (arrangements made). I plane on feeding them microworms as their primary food, and brine shrimp every two to three days. When the time comes, I have a filter ready to help maintain clean water, and will perform a 50% water change once a week after the first 3 weeks. Anyways, heres some picture of the fish. I'm breeding a silver halfmoon female, who is larger than the male
and the male is a half moon dumbo. I plan to release them to spawn Wednesday at the earliest, if she has breeding striped and his bubblenest is made.
