    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...
  6. Koi HMPK

    Betta Spawn Logs
    Hi all! I'm new here, but I've been lurking for years. I finally reached the point where I was ready to have a spawn! I bought the pair on eBay. After conditioning with bloodworms I left them in the spawn tank with the female in a breeder net. Both fish were showing immediate interest, and the...
  7. What can I breed a Delta Tail male with?

    Breeding Betta Fish
    The delta tail gene is recessive, so would breeding a male delta tail male with a crowntail female just result with crowntails? Or rejects?

  12. Do you feed the male betta fish while he is tending the eggs?

    Breeding Betta Fish
    Hey-- I am interested to know how all of you out there feed your male betta while he is tending the eggs, or if you don't feed him at all. Some say if you feed him, he will be used to food and start to eat the eggs, and others say if you don't feed him he will get hungry and start to eat the...

    Breeding Betta Fish
    Hi, I am new to breeding bettas and am currently looking for a breeding pair. I'm a little confused about dragon and metallic genetics (and color genetics in general- there's so many options). If you breed two red dragons would all of the offspring be red dragons? What if you bred a red...
  17. Breeding HalfSun or Crowntail

    Breeding Betta Fish
    Sadly my earlier breeding attempt failed and both my veiltails died. After burying both in my backyard, I did some research and decided to either breed a crowntail spawn or try to breed a halfsun. Because crowntails are recessive (at least from what I've seen) and half moons are dominant, is...
