Fish Folk Posted January 1, 2021 Share Posted January 1, 2021 We’re planning to start breeding betta splendens here in the next month. Biggest challenge is deciding in advance how to prep for growout. One of our friends works at Chick-fil-a here locally, and can get us these clear 1-gallon plastic jugs that they sell tea in. So, as proof-of-concept, we set up a couple yesterday. Used cycled tank water from female Gourami aquarium, added 3x marimo moss balls to each, floated water lettuce, and clipped pothos portions to grow emmersed. Stuck a light airline in, but ran it through the jug handle so that the bubbles can be limited, leaving water surface tension undisturbed so males can build bubble nests, etc. put in 1x alder cone, and a thumbnail-sized piece of Indian almond leaf - both for boosting tannins. I can fit 14x along the edges of this rack we built. Figure the females can grow out in the breeding tank, and males can mature in these for sale. Kind of quirky, but materials are free! 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
