I have tried to do research on this subject, but could not find anything.
Would it be possible to not let them spawn for the full length of time, thus leaving me with a smaller batch of fry for my first time breeding?
If not, I am prepared as far as housing 100+ Bettas, but if I could get by...
I want to leave the male with the fry after they've hatched so he would do culling instead of me, since I want to have only a few bettas to keep. It seems more natural to me than to remove the male and cull the fry myself.
Will he leave a couple of newborns to reach maturity?
