Bettas are fun and educational to breed. One must have a male and a female, and they are easy to tell apart (the female has short fins and dull color, and the male has long fins and bright color). The fish need to be well-fed, and the tank needs to be big enough so they're not crowded until they FEEEEEL like gettin' it together, hm. The water needs to be about 78-82 degrees. With the above in mind, the process is as follows: The male will 'build a bubble nest'...that is to say, he will blow bubbles at the top of the water and stick them together and blow MORE bubbles until he has a mass of bubbles which is, like, a couple inches around and a half-or-three-quarter inch thick. Then he will Show Out in a Big Way for the female, to get her to come over and Visit his nest. And if she is well-fed and full of eggs, and if he is Cute....she will come. Next he will bend his body around hers...she will let out eggs, and he will let out milt (which is the Fish Name for sperm, eh). The eggs and milt will float upwards into the bubbles, and Combine to become Fertilized Eggs. After that, the male is done with the female and will chase her away. You should take her out of the tank, unless it is a large tank. The male will tend the nest and the eggs in a V. Dedicated Fashion. In a few days, the eggs will hatch. But they won't be able to swim just yet, so the male will continue to take care of them by taking them in his mouth when they fall out and spitting them back up into the nest. In a couple more days, the baby fish will be able to swim on their own. The male will herd them around for a couple days and Protect them...but then he will lose interest and leave them to fend for themselves. You can take the male out, too, because after he begins to lose interest, it is possible that he will start Eating them...by accident. Fish are not all *that* smart, see. But as fish go, the male Betta is a very good parent! Most fish just spew their eggs anywhere and go on about their fishy business right away.
They lay eggs
only if they eat them or the fry are adults
around 300 to 500 on average.So if you are planning to breed your bettas you should buy around 300 jars for all the babies because each baby will need a different jar or else they will fight.
No bettas are fish not mammals. Bettas have a labyrinth organ which enables them to breathe air when there is not enough oxygen in the water to sustain them. Here are some things that separate bettas from mammals Hair. Bettas have no hair or fur Scales. Bettas have scales, mammals do not Ability to breathe through gills. Mammals do not have gills, bettas do Egg laying. Bettas lay eggs, mammals give birth to babies without shells that are able to breathe by themselves
The male bettas blow these bubbles that you can't pop. The babies go in because he takes care of the babies because she eats them.
No, it is impossible. Goldfish are coldwater and have different spawning techniques than bettas.
Bettas are great.
Boy bettas have really big fins and are very colorful, and girl bettas are pretty much the opposite!
No, not at all.
Bettas originate from Southeast Asia.
No. Bettas (especially males) are solitary, and do not live with other bettas. MAle bettas will attempt to kill other fish they see, including bettas.
Male bettas should be kept alone. Female bettas can sometimes be kept with other fish, but in a large community tank. Bettas need their space!
bettas are very territorial fish, the males fight for their territiory.
Bettas swim at the top of the bowl because they are hungry. Bettas are hungry fish
the same as all the other bettas
Bettas will eat baby guppys as will most other fish, but in general, male Bettas will only fight with other male Bettas. They do not fight with other species of fish
No. Male Bettas will kill a female if either she will not spawn with him, or if she is left in his tank after he has spawned her. Male Bettas can not be kept with other Bettas, male or female.
All animals can reproduce. Bettas are no exception. When a male and female are left together under the right conditions, they will spawn.
Hmm, intresting. Of all my time of breeding bettas for fun, I never had a male betta which has a baby on its own.
Anything up to 500 eggs can be laid, though not all of them will make it. If you plan to breed bettas, you better have a LOT of containers ready!
yes. the babies will need room to grow. the absolute smallest you need to breed them is a 5 gal
yes bettas have small gills because they are a fish!
Mouth brooding cichlids and some saltwater fish to my knew
They see them the same as other male bettas,as competition,they cannot tell the diffrence between their reflections and other bettas.
Bettas won't spawn at all if there is not a bubble nest.
