i would say throw out both ideas and buy some endlers .they are some of the most beautiful fish i have ever seen, but they do not fight like bettas, and do not even need females in the tank like guppies!

it is healthy to have 6-8 endlers in a 10 gallon, but get 3-5 if you would want other fish in the tank with them.
EDIT: oops, didnt see the post above me!

The only reason I'm leaning towards guppies right now is because I know they can be breed in jars [ I have proof. ] and if I could breed guppies for money, wonderful.

But if I were to keep Betta fish and wanted to breed them I'd need many supplies and it could cost up to $500 [ according to this site. ] to get all the supplies.
dude, you are wrong about breeding guppies in jars. that would most likely kill them if you didnt do a 99% water change every hour. if you breed guppies in jars, i will personally come to your house and buy you a new tank to put them in.(or steal every guppy and pee in your fireplace)

Wrong ^^.

According to this one guppy forum, they can be bred in jars with a daily 20% water change every morning.

And the person who tried had their guppies live in the same jar for at least 5 months without a full 100% water change.

Occupied Tanks;
1 ten gallon tank
1 five gallon tank


empty;
a few jars

Actually, it isn't. You do realize the jars are bigger than peanut butter jars right?

I can give you a link to forum if you'd like.

You should be fine to post links to specialist forums like that. I post links to the GAB (goldfish specific forum) all the time.

That method of breeding sounds a lot like betta breeding (except spawn tanks aren't jars). Many breeders will keep their fish in gallon jars. The only modification I would make would be to paint the bottom one color as opposed to putting down gravel as the gravel could trap debris and cause the water to foul a little faster. And bare-bottomed tanks are easier to clean.
