    There are a lot of really good guides to keeping and breeding bettas here already. I would suggest you give them a read.

    I also highly recommend punctuation, makes it much easier to read;)

    Introduction to bettas: Welcome to the Betta Section!

    Bettas can and do eat flakes, but you should watch the ingredients -- many "betta" flake foods have a lot of plant material.

    There is more to breeding bettas than plopping them in the same tank and taking the female out after the spawn.

    There are tons of foods that work for bettas, not just the ones listed. Live foods are good, and it works well to have different foods on a feeding rotation.

    The tremendous amount of spelling, grammar, and punctuation mistakes makes any valuable information in here difficult to understand or trust.

    Please see the links above as well as the other sticky topics in the betta section! :)

    Tannins are a great way to help keep PH at healthy levels for betta fish, but they do darken water color.
