I've got the breeding bin ready, except for the water. I've got plants for hiding, and a plastic cup to aid with the bubble nest. I will be using a heater, and a small filter. When I finish helping my daughter move, at the end of the month, I'm going to add water.

Hi Sharon,

Gosh, I'm quite excited about this.

So will you be watching the activty from above as the plastic looks a bit opaque and I know they can get a bit agressive after mating. - Can't wait till the end of the month to get the next instalment.

So many questions - will you introduce them with a tank divider?

I have just had a vision of lots of little tanks all lining your window sills and
shelves full of little blue fishes. lol I bet your lfs will think its xmas if you are successful with this mating and take them into him.

Please keep us posted. Looking forward to all those photos too.

Michelle

Thanks guys! I guess it will be exciting if everything goes well. Michelle, I plan to put her inside a glass globe, and leave her there for a few hours until he's adjusted to her, and/or they both look ready. It all seems so easy, when you read about it...but NOTHING is ever simple, in my experience. Pics won't be good, as the bin is plastic, so will be taken from above. I guess you'll be able to get some idea of what's going on...

As soon as I had posted, I had a read up on the site's betta section.

I'm going to get my knitting needles out in anticipation of some matinee jackets lol. I'll knit short ones as that appears to be the fashion at the moment.
