    This site
    is where i got the bucket instructions. And OFL on this site lets hers breed in buckets outside all summer. I cant' imagine what I'm doing wrong. Unless its just bugging them too much. the guy at the betta store never mentions water changes or if he leave the boy in or out.

    I've let my guys spawn many times and only once didn't have eggs drop during the embracing. But something goes awry that night and the nests are gone the next day. My male blue devil ct has spawned the most times. I have video of him on youtube. How long would you give Mocha and Cocoa before you let them try again? I think they are the most complimentary in appearance. I'm thinking how awesome it would be if they had babies with her deep orange and his black edges and blue iridescence. Banana is a great spawner, though rougher on the girls than the others. I always leave the nest alone for over a week just in case i just cant see babies at first. For Banana's last time, someone said they take the boy out too and put an airline in the bucket to keep the water moving and prevent fungus. That didn't work for me either. Banana and lemon are in the bucket again now.
    oh, i rambled -
    I'll stop typing now. :D have you had Bettas or other kinds of fish very long?

    Do you think rather than Mocha, if i should breed her to a more yellow boy, like Pepper or Banana?

    I don't know if you have a buyers list to be on, but I want one male and at least 2 females. I may have messaged you twice. Pardon me for that. Would, you have prices ? Perhaps a pic of parents?

    I have a spawn of Black Orchid CT's and Copper Black CT's growing out that will be available in about another month or so.

    That is about 11 hours. You are the closest in here that I know. What are you considering breeding her to? I Java an infinity towards blacks, but after seeing your girl the orange is amazing.

    Sure I would save you whatever you wanted. I'm in Rapid City South Dakota, are you very far away?
