    O'well i got lots of live foods coming mainly for early stages. Brine shrimp eggs, microworms, walter worms, banana worms, i also do plan to get a daphnia culture too. as soon as i get them i can breed the bettas. Another update, i have moved the female into what was my propagation tank, but i cleaned it and now its her own 20g long tank with DIY sponge filter. She seems to enjoy in a lot more than her little large kritter keeper

    Sorry I've been having slow delays, I will be getting my microworm, walter worm and banana worms cultures hopefully by the end of this week, i do have brine shrimp eggs (i read on a website i could use any kind of salt in the water? anyone try this?) So at the moment they are being spoiled, i moved the female to half a 20 gallon tank and i also got some java moss, water wisteria and anacharis. Hopefully end of this week early next week will be the spawn. so many delays driving me crazy haha, but at least i know they are definitely conditioned to their full potential. (over 2 week condition period, think they are on 3 or 4)

    If i get any from the spawn would anyone be interested in taking some? i will offer them just for shipping. I plan to give them off to petshop and friends. So if i get some good ones out of this spawn I'll post them up, of course ill probably keep a few too IF things do progress well, i may try to get in some plakats and halfmoons, i also like the dragons.

    here's another one

    got my worm cultures today, plan to let them get established, clean the tanks tomorrow, move the female into the males tank in a plastic container, just to encourage him to build a nest. then maybe babies early next week

    Cool. I recommend placing a hold, like a Styrofoam cup cut in half, for the bubble nest.

    i second limeslide's idea, it helps keep the nest intact and prevents drafts from destroying the nest. better yet, use floating plants or leaves as they will provide a site for infusora--a baby betta's first food.
