Betta breeding

Betta breeding can and will be pretty difficult, especially if your going to do it correctly, because of this it’s usually reccomend to start with another egg layer first so you can get idea on fry rearing. Our breeders will likely have some more input.

I just had my first batch of fry this week. Betta eggs go from being in the nest to hatching within days. That's the first mistake I made so I was not ready with their food but I was able to get some tricks on what to do. If you're truly considering breeding your bettas I would get your food ready now

It really depends on your personal preference. I actually ordered a microworm culture which is actually nematodes and they seem like they're pretty easy to keep alive

Also right now the betta I have has shredded fins so should I wait for them to grow back?

Yes. Breeding is very aggressive for bettas so you want them in the best shape possible.

And watch his eye, it can become Popeye if it gets infected, but it should go back to normal

If he bumped his eye, scratched it in the fight, or even just weakened immunity during recovery from the fight... all those things can cause it. Some bettas get it for no known cause
