  1. Breeding questions

    Breeding Betta Fish
    1: Can the fry eat baby brine shrimp as their first meal? 2: Can I hatch the brine shrimp without an air pump? 3: Can I try limiting the number of eggs the pair lays? 4: I have read that the fry will be OK in colder temperatures and if there is no heater in the tank they will just grow up to be...
  2. Question from a first timer

    Betta Chat
    Hello, I am planning to start a planted aquarium for a betta. This will be my first betta, but also my first time keeping any kind of aquarium. Next week I am planting and starting the tank, so it will be several weeks before I actually have a fish and put one into the tank. That said, I...
  3. First Time Breeding

    Breeding Betta Fish
    So over the last few months I've done quite a bit of research on how to breed bettas and I've followed the info as closely as I can. My pair is a really nice blue and white male CT and a white and red female CT. I am fairly sure that they are young enough to breed, they are both showing positive...

    Hi there! I've been reading this forum for about 8-9 months, I finally got around to creating an account.

  6. Sex and Breed of Fry

    Betta Fish Care
    I just got a fry that was marked as a male. However, from what I've read, it's not easy to sex them at his age, so I'm taking that with a grain of salt! However, I was wondering if anyone has a general idea of this little guy's sex or breed. I'm guessing crown tail but I have no clue! Also...

    Hey guys! I'm new to this forum and also a new betta mom. I introduced my new betta to his 5 gallon heated and filtered tank yesterday. He is happily exploring every nook and cranny of his home, and has been quite responsive to my presence. (I attached a picture of him chillin' with his silk...

  9. Betta Compatibility

    Breeding Betta Fish
    I have been having a little issue with my Royal Blue VTCT male, named Bluetail (adopted him from another family.) I want him to breed with my Steel Blue CTCT female named Geneviève. They seem to be compatible since they are showing signs of liking each other. (The male is swimming in an "S" and...
  10. What is the minimum amount of breeding supplies to buy?

    Breeding Betta Fish
    I want to get into betta breeding, but I'd like to try breeding at least once to experience it and find it whether I like it or not. I don't want to get all this stuff and only use it once. Don't get me wrong; I'm not trying to be a stingy as possible. I'll buy what's needed. Also, I already...
  11. How do I sell my bred bettas?

    Breeding Betta Fish
    How and where should I sell my bettas? And if I'm unable to sell, how can I get rid of them to free up space? Will pet stores take extra bettas for no costs? I'd like to get into breeding bettas, and I'm trying to get more information about the whole process. Thank you!

  14. Should I Breed This Female?

    Breeding Betta Fish
    Okay, so I'll be getting another male some time this month, for my 10 gal divided tank. This female will have one side. I bought her for my sorority tank, but she doesn't get along well with other fish. Anyway, I have another female, but to me, this one is more show-worthy. What do you think...

    Betta Pictures
    I have literally the greatest betta fish. She is sooo much fun. When I first got her from Petco she was so tiny and wouldn't move, but now she is crazy! She tries to fights my finger and she swims all around sooo proud of herself. It's adorable. She even splashes a little out of the water when I...

  18. What kind of Betta is Thomas?

    Betta Pictures
    I've had my little guy for 3 weeks, and I am not certain exactly what kind he is? Any help would be appreciated! When purchasing, I picked out the most rejected-looking one I could find, he looked like he needed someone to take him home :) I did post today in "diseases and emergencies" because...
  19. Small chunk missing from betta's tail?

    Betta Fish Care
    This is Kevin. I bought him a few hours ago from a local Petco, because I am far too poor to obtain a better fish from a breeder. At first he was just sitting at the bottom of his bowl, which seemed peculiar to me for a fish who was suddenly given another full gallon to swim around in, so I...
