I'm going to try HM. But what should I use to separate the males and the agresive females? I'm going to try and keep the pesfull females together in a 20 gallon tup. But what containers should I use for the males? 1 gallon or more is preferable but I'm in canada and we don't use Gallons. How many leaters is ok? Also what do you use as containers for the fry?

I think what you want is 20 liters and up for your tank for a male betta. They CAN be kept in small tanks or bowls but they do not thrive like they would in a larger one. What part of Canada do you live in? In Alberta they have the Imperial and Metric systems on the boxes.

I think most breeders keep the males in 1 liter tanks but only one in a tank and the girls can be kept together. But I believe the usual minimum tank is about 210 liters for a female tank for them to grow up in. To grow bettas is an expensive process. and they take daily water changes of 50% in each and every tank for their fins to develop correctly. This is a time consuming and labor intensive process and why many people do not take on the job of breeding bettas. It is a lot of work!!!! And takes a lot of equipment.
