  1. Breeding Betta Fish
    Hey guys, This is my first time breeding betta and I've read about the Growth-inhibiting hormone the betta produce. My fry are 5 weeks old now and moved into their grow out tank, the tank has a filter on it but I was wondering if that will remove the GIH? I am doing regular water changes too...

    So this is my first time breeding and the fry have turned 2 weeks old today. I noticed by week 1 they started dying 😢 but it was just 1 or 2 a day so I thought maybe this is natural. I feed them fine egg yolk particles through a syringe but couldn't confirm if they were really eating it and...

    This is my first time caring for betta fry. They are 8 days old and I'm feeding them bbs since 2 days. I didn't know this but I just read a post that the fry will die if they eat the unhatched eggs. I can see a lot of the eggs in the bottom (or maybe some of them are hatched bbs which died...

    Hiya, this is my first successful spawn and I'm a little confused about to do in my situation. I've read that once the fry are free swimming, you should take out the male. However, about not all of my fry hatched on the same day and there are still a decent amount in the nest. Will he hurt the...

    New fish keeper here! I currently have a spawn in my 15 gal tank. I added the indian almond leaves for the tannins and as a natural hiding place. A few days ago I noticed that there was a growth on the leaves that the fry were interested in. A layer of biofilm. I know this is normal but is it...

    Hello everyone, these fry started free-swimming yesterday, and it seems like vinegar eels are too big for them? You can see in the pics that the vinegar eels seemed to be escaping from the gills of the fry. Should I be concerned about this? Thank you.

    I was wondering how breeders find homes for all the fry! Are they sold to local pet stores, or on eBay/Cregslist? or possibly any other ways

    The results of this crossing are: -So far just about every fry has a black rim. -There were no fry without metallic sheen, indicating one of the parents has to be + + but not showing yellow. (No green.) Edit: Yellow is a slower color to develop, and some are definitely showing the results of...

    Meet Roy, a Petco "baby boy" betta. I've had him for around three months now, which should make him between four or five months old total. I've gotten a lot of feedback that he is female, a few comments of him being a plakat, and others of him being a comb-veil tail. Thoughts? He lacks both an...

    So about a week ago i put my male and female betta in to breed. I had a really big and successful batch of fry but unfortunately only around 10 or so survived. I wanted to open my tank to my male betta to recover so i figured the rest of the babies were going to die off. Side note i also keep...

    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...

    Hi, I was watching my betta swim around today, then I noticed a little fry in the tank with him! It's not easy to find, but is noticeable. I have NEVER bred bettas before, nor do I have a female, so how is there a baby fry in there? Someone please help! :-?

    I have a quick question. At the moment i'm hatching bbs it has been 4 days they all hatch for the most part. When should I start the new batch ? I use 1 tbs of eggs and salt combo. Is there a time frame that I should start making a new batch ?

    I know that I need maroxy, but which other medications are a must have before I begin breeding?
  20. Breeding Betta Fish
    What should betta fry eat for the different stages in their life? And how do you grow and harvest live food cultures? And one extra question: I know that fry should be fed in small portions 3-4 times a day as opposed to 1 big portion each day. If you have to go somewhere, and you'll be gone most...
