    Hello .I'm returning to Betta's after ten years hiatus and want to get into breeding. I successfully spawned once but ended up in the hospital from swallowing to much fish water in syphoning. So i've never had to deal with mature fry before, I lost all but four while I was in the hospital. Anyway I'm not sure what to do with the fry and was told you might be able to help me come up with a plan. The thread is "What to do with a hundred new betta" in Betta Chat I would appreciate your comments. Thank you

    I like your signature. I am very much the same way. I seek to learn all the time, every day. And especially these days, I seek to be an informed person, and effective researcher.

    Hi, me again :P how do you feed them decap, spread some around the tank? Soak in water and spread it around? Or just place it one place and eventually they learn to come.. Thanks!

    What kind of powdered food do you start them on? I was looking on aquabid and saw golden pearls, APR, and fry crack. Any of those you recommend? And do you just add powdered food into the spawn tank and eventually they'll take it? or do you add some bbs in with the power food to help transition. Thanks for answering my questions.

    Hey, I'm looking to start breeding soon and had a few questions. How much bbs do you hatch everyday/or night? and how many times do you feed a day? When do you add the sponge filter? When harvesting vingear eels, how long can this culture last before one has to pull out the filter floss? and last, how do you start transitioning them from live to frozen foods?

    So I am new to the betta fish breeding thing. I have done a lot of research but am still terrified I am going to do something wrong. I have read things from a 10 gallon tank to a 5 gallon plastic bucket. Any help would be awesome.
