View Full Version : Thinking about breeding my crowntail

01-31-2009, 03:59 AM
Starlight is busy building a nest and I have no female for him, yet. I have my breeding tank set up according to the research I've been doing and my female should be here tomorrow. I'm pretty sure I have everything I need, I'm just nervous. Starlight is really special to me- I can't wait to see how he does as a father- I'm just wondering if he is too old to breed. I have 4 other males, 2 that are much younger than Starlight but he's my favorite. (I have an obsession with white bettas.) I bought him about a year ago. I'm guessing that if he's building a nest he's still within breeding age.

I guess my biggest concern is that, if they do spawn, I won't have the right food for the fry. I've read a lot of different things about home-cultured infusoria, microworms, daphnia, baby brine shrimp. Any advice on feeding fry before I make my first attempt at betta breeding?
