    Its quite funny theyre not shy they swim up against the glass when ever you go near the tank but they just dont stop moving . Over excited I guess

    Well ill just post anyway . So I know some wild bettas in a heavy planted tank decent size can produce and offspring can grow . So I was wondering why not try the same thing with your bettas . I know to some breeders it may sound like really dum idea but could it work any possibility.

    There would definitely be low survival rate but if you perhaps designed the tank in a certain way you could predict a spawning spot secluded and hidden

    Ja Bud, it was through Marco that I tried. It was just too expensive and I think the Betta would bore the crap out of him because they grow so slowly in comparison to the Rams.

    Well , all my spawns happen in a 1ft Aquarium , that`s heavily planted. The thing is , Prolific males generally are also extremely aggressive and will attack the female If she comes too close to the nest. Having said that , I have before had spawns where I`ve left the female with the male , and grown juveniles together to almost adulthood without a problem. It only take 1 Male to fire up though , and then the proverbial fit its the shan.
