I am getting my imbellis ready to spawn. The male is looking very pretty and starting on a nest.

Thanks. The male is prettier than the father and has better form. I hope to show the fry.

Good luck Betta man. Hope you can raise the fry to adulthood. If not, read all information about bettas and their care and ask questions, make sure that you understand about bettas and their care and needs.

The male is being a dummy and so is the female lol. She isn't barring up and he's not very interested.

come on man..you are the king of the bettas and a successful breeder...this should be a piece of cake for you...
they aren't breeding because you haven't been feeding them Plecocaine.....
separate them and start feeding her high protein/high fat foods 4-5 times a day...kick the heat up to 84.....after about 5 days do a water change and put them close..
but don't take my advice because i don't know much about bettas...

They are jueveniles. I'm wondering if the female isn't old enough yet... Thanks. I will feed them high protein foods.

I got rid of three of the 6 and am planning on getting betta stiktos pure bloods. I'm going to let them mature more before I try to spawn them.

i really think that you should get the easy ones down pat before you try those that are more difficult..

"All Splendens complex members are the same" (speaking about care and spawning according to a local wild type betta breeder) . Betta stiktos is a member of the splendens complex. It is rare and is native to Cambodia. The IBC doesn't even have any pictures of it and has almost no info on it. The person who I'm buying from knows care and has educated me on it. But yeah, you're right. I do need to get the easier ones down.

Betta man: try guppies, they are so easy to breed, you don't have to do anything at all, just put a male in with a female or two and they will breed.

I've bred guppies. I have 5 endlers which are relatives. Actually, three of them are babies. I'm getting an adult pair that is pre conditioned. What can go wrong? (I jinxed myself so something will go wrong). I can get them to breed without much problem. It's the fry I'm worried about. Anyways, I'm going to get lots of fry foods and am going to do daily 50 percent water changes........ hopefully.

I would read up on baby fish and their care and raising them. Then, just then, you may be successful at raising your fry to adulthood. Never raise and take care of fry without knowledge of how to care and raise them.

Yeah. I have read up a lot about raising baby bettas. My plan is gutstuffing them and lots of water changes.
