Very nice pics Ethan..

I see they are males.. any females?

Are you planning to breed soon .. or are they just pets?

thanks I just got my old camera working

Well yes I do have females I'm planning on breeding soon but have just lost recently my best pair :blink: so its really bumming me out I'm buying blackworms to recondition my bettas just look so depressed I don't now why and the pair I do have ready to breed are just so small.........and I have lost a lot of bettas to breeding I've been trying and trying to breed them its just after my best pair lost interest all my others didn't wanna breed eithier ::OMG:: so right now is the rest period for them the funny thing is after I buy walterworms,micros and vinegar ells they don't want to breed :nopity: and to add I've spoiled them on brine and went back to dry food and they aren't happy about that either so right now like I said I'm gonna give myself and my bettas a good long break. And take a long reconditiong process I'll take some pics of my females if you want :D

I might end up breeding in a couple weeks if they are ready they are just so old now most of them must be a year or older except my baby female I got from petco because some of the bettas I have now I've had for a whole year so they alreay have a fin and 1/2 in the grave most likely out of there 4 fins :brickwall I just wished I got microworms sooner....... :nopity:.......my dad said though with 20+ bettas your going to get fatalities he said if you start getting spawns going good I 'll have hundreds of baby bettas to look after :wub: that's a good thing to look forward to and I'm going to buy finrot meds

The best breeding age is around 6 months.. some earlier.. some later. Depending on the line, once you get to 10 months you are going down hill..

I use vinegar eels and BBS for the fry. As far as the adults.. I feed pellets, live daphnia, and grindals... along wth frozen adult brine and frozen daphia. Everyone has their own combination of foods.. no live blackworms in my area.

Finrot's main culprit is lack of water changes and clean-sterilized containers.. temperature would be a factor also. I know I have been a little slack lately and it shows in the fish and their activeness in the jars.

Consider Furan 2 by API for finrot and internal parasites such as Hex... it contains nitrofurozone.

Would love to see your pics of the girls..

Good luck..

Pam.

Taking photos of these fish is harder than breeding them! (in my opinion)
