View Full Version : Lots to Learn

06-29-2008, 12:37 AM
I'm an enthusiastic beginner who would like to learn from the collective wisdom of this membership. My goal is to breed beautiful bettas, but not until I've learned a little more. Wish me luck!

I promise to try and find answers by searching before I ask, but I hope you will be patient with me when I fail and ask anyway.

Thanks in advance for your help and support. When I know a little more I'll try to be a good mentor on the list.

Welcome to the assylum! Breeding bettas is a wonderful, rewarding hobby that will drive you insane(at least that is what happened to me). There are a few good books out there that may help, but this place is full of great people who love to help out newcomers so don't be afraid to ask. I would offer to write down everything I know about betta breeding but it would be far too time consuming in this stupid straightjacket, it's hard enough to type with a crayon in between my teeth....:crazy:

Aloha, Fred

Welcome Billiejean! There are a whole lot of very smart and helpful, if slightly tilted, people on here who are always very happy to help. Take Care.

I put a pair of bettas in a heavily planted 55 gal tank. They bred and raised their fry with no problem at all. At about 3 or 4 months the kids started to battle but nothing vicious. My LFS was kind enough to take the juvis at 4 months old. It was fun and i`ve actually thought of breeding like that again.

The only thing you will learn here is how to act up.
