Hi Gemini. They weren't trying to put you down, they were just trying to help prevent unnecessary suffering and deaths. I know it's hard to refrain from breeding bettas and doing fun experiments but we should always put their lives first before our fun and pleasure. And like people here already said you will likely have a LOT of baby bettas and no place to keep them or give them to. I wish you the best if you decide to go through with it but I hope you reconsider.Okay then since everyone is putting me down about breeding them, I wont. Thanks everyone for being so helpful and supporting! I guess I wont breed bettas
Thank you, I really just want to breed Bettas for fun, I'm hopefully going to pair two of my Bettas up, I have one Rose Petal Betta, and one veiltail, and two veiltail females, I'm not expecting to make a business out of this at all,I will say it's a good idea. Breeding bettas is a good learning experience. You can have genetics class and learning how to raise babies. Feeding baby bettas involves timely dispensing of bbs and gentle water changes. Only a person who is responsible can take care of baby bettas!
I personally bred pet store bettas for baby bettas and not doing it for profit. My husband and I just like baby animals. We also had baby birds and wish we could have kittens, but our only spoiled cat is spayed. We were willing to have all babies at our home. There are only 6 survivors, which is actually better. One is very much deformed, but we take special care of him.
It is all what you have patience and time for and not expecting to get rich.
