I think I will start breeding betas when my 30 gallon is ready. I will keep the male and female beta in the ten gallon until the female lays her eggs and the male becomes territorial. I will then take the female out of the 10 gal. and put her in the 30 gal. with the rest of my fish. Would that work? I've never tried breeding any type of fish, or animal for that matter and I don't really know what to do other than what the books I've been reading and you tell me.

One of our members from Indonesia who has bred Betta is preparing an article on the methods. You might want to keep an eye out for that, as it will give you a lot of info about something that is not as easy as many of us think. I read the first draft the other day and was amazed.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
