    I put this into thought and wanted to try breeding some bettas, it's worth the experience and the enjoyment.
    I have been keeping bettas for twelve years now, and I think it's time to take a step above just keeping them as regular fish.

    I wanted to branch out to a sorority, so why not try a small breeding project?

    Since I want to do this, I will have to check with my local aquarium store, they carry designer bettas, which are bred by the owner's daughter, she's a professional at only eleven years old!
    If they won't take them, I will keep some for myself until I have no room, but I will keep them for as long as possible. They will find homes eventually, it'll take time.


    So, here's what I have to offer for breeding.

    10 gallon tank
    I have plenty of containers, and jars which will work for breeding. I also have spare filtration plans for later usage.
    The breeding habitat is manageable, I think it's doable.

    I read lila's article, and I understand most of it, it's familiar to me.
    What do you say?

    You sound super prepared (one of the best things for breeding bettas)! I think you should go for it! Depending on the colors and strains I might end up with a couple...

    Oh, and another question.
    Should I go pick out a new pair at the store, I don’t want to use my current ones, they are too pretty.

    I would say so. If you trust the fish and the breeder, then go for it!
