Default Major Mistakes While Breeding/Spawning.

Dear Bro/Sis Here. I would like to gather all your past experience as a guide for me to learn from it! From the beginning from your first betta first till now, What kind of major mistakes you did which makes u really regret it and learn alot from it. Of so many fish in the world why betta?
  • My first major mistakes is buying the wrong type of live plants which dies and trapped my spawn which wipeout all of it.
  • 2nd mistakes is over feeding too much bbs which infested the water

"PS If I sound kinda noob"

removing the male too early, causing unhatched eggs to rot and fungus to attack half developing eggs... lost about one third of them.

Anyhow breed, for the sake of breeding, indiscriminately choosing 2 fish to put together, not knowing what to expect, what is the purpose of breeding, producing an entire spawn of unexpected offerings and not knowing what to do with them

Sorry, but i fail to see the rationale in your words. Why would you want to "gain experience" when so many bros have contributed theirs?

Look up the FAQ and past threads. So much information has been shared, esp on breeding. Information even include raising fries. Breeding bettas isn't rocket science you know. In fact, bettas are one of the simpler fish to breed. What remains a challenge is what to breed for maximum results. Ignore this and you'd simply lose interest or burn out.

Good luck.
