During my search I found that betta fry for the first 5 weeks don't need to come up to the surface for air because their labyrinth organ isn't developed until 5 weeks old. Is this at all true Chard56? It is something that I never knew about bettas.

Absolutely not true. They develop at a much younger age than that. That's what gets my ire up. Someone reads an article like this person that made that statement and repeats it or misinterprets it and we as inquiring enthusiasts read what the so called "experts" wrote and think it's true. In the mean time we may have killed off some fry or a female in a spawning situation that wouldn't have happened with the right information in the first place. That's what I was getting at before when the two younger members were making sticky's and writing up "articles" from things that they read without the proper explainations or just generalized.

I wonder who they were.........

Anyways, eggs won't die if they stay on the bottom. I find that interesting.

A couple of very enthusiastic young lads who in their over exuberance to show off their extensive accumulated book smarts and in an attempt to outdo each other made up some unintentionally misleading and misinformed threads without actually having researched and verifying the results of said information posted in the threads. Ha ha! I have to give you a hard time and keep you on your toes anyway. I find that as long as you keep the water level at 4 inches or less the eggs and fry on the bottom of the tank have a better chance of surviving.

Betta man: yes you are one of the ones that made stickies about bettas and their care. There is wrong info out there about bettas. But there are also correct info on them. You just have to know where to look and ask the right people.

Yes you need to .... I mean THEY need to understand that what one persons experience and results are may not work for someone else. Especially when it comes to genetics. Bettas genes are constantly changing and what may have been true 10 years ago or even last year may not hold true now. For an example I was told a Purple Betta was too hard to produce also that Red and Yellow could not exist on the same fish. Well, guess what. That doesn't hold true in my fishrooms! We need to make a new thread and stop spamming this persons sick Betta thread.
