Breeding Bettas - What's Worked for Me - This is how I do it!

***Some fish are different, and this won't work for everybody. This does not include the conditioning of the parents or fry care. No products are linked through this by me, I might add some later.***

You'll want a ten gallon tank, filled about 1/4-1/2 of the way with clean water.
Put in a sponge filter so that the flow is not going to bother most of the tank.
Use two of the fifty watt heaters (preset or adjustable is fine) and put them on opposite end of the tank.
Get about two golf...

Very good instructions on breeding Bettas. You may want to add at the end to be sure to remove the male once the fry are free swimming. The first time I bred mine years ago I left the male in there with the fry one night too long and all the fry ended up a midnight snack for him. He will take care of the eggs but they are just food for him once hatched and he can no longer control all of them.

The second time I removed him as soon as the fry were free swimming and I was able to successfully raise the whole spawn.
