Hey guys
I have been thinking, and I was wondering if you guys could give me a couple ideas on betta barracks. I have some bettas I plan on using for breeding(and obviously hundreds of fry I will need tanks for).
How do you guys house your breeders/fry? And if you were going to breed, how would you house them?

A note- obviously it would be ideal to have 300 5-10 gallon tanks, that's not happening. I was thinking of 2 liter soda bottles. And once they are retired from breeding (or sold) they will get moved to a larger tank.

Thanks Lucy! That was really helpful!
I might have to give that a try. Water changes would be so easy. Jut open a valve and the water flows out the window.

You're welcome. Hope it works for you.

Someone who has experience breeding bettas may have other suggestion.
Good luck!

Wow that's a good idea! I should try it too lol

for me, i'm using almost the same method as him except without his piping system. That system is pretty cool! I just using regular glass or plastic bottles for males while females in the same tank/container. Selected bettas for show or breeding are keep in bigger containers for conditioning and training. Since I'm living in southeast asia country, I don't need heater as the country already have hot and high humidity weather.

You can separate the males from females as early as 2 month old. but usually at 3 months old you can see their male behaviour (flare/aggressively toward others) much clearer. At 5 months old they are ready for sell and shipping.
