They're so tiny. I usually let mine out after 2 weeks

I have always had male betas in community tanks n never had an issue, glad to hear there is somebody else out there that keeps betas in community tanks

Yes I wont let mine out for at least 2 weeks. I have a few that are about three weeks old and still look too small to let out

I've got so many guppies I don't even put the females in the breeding net. But almost all the fry survive on their own which I think is pretty cool

I've had several batches already and none of them have survived. I have plenty of plants and decorations for them to hide in but they never seem to make it. I wonder if it's because i have some danios and they are very fast! So the fry can't get away fast enough

Yeah that's possible. My guppies all have long fancy tails so they're slower than the fry. Even though I have 2 glow light tetras I don't think they eat the fry

Usually when my live breeder are about to drop they go near a bunch of plants and are very still, but you gotta catch them and put them in the breeder tank quickly after that

Mine took up to a day to give birth sometimes!

Would always try feeding Momma and if she was hungry I would feed a tiny bit of crumbs during the birth every hour if she was still interested, almost always the mommas were hungry!!!

I have kept a number of males and females in community tanks and everything depends on their personality. One of the meanest Betas I ever owned was a female, tried to KILL anything in reach. She was like a rabid dog. I don't mean chase or scare either!

Good luck and congratulations on the new babies!

I left her in the breeders box for about 4 hours, she must have had 25 little ones! So i let her back out with the others. I think i need to pick up a couple more females though because I've noticed some of my females tails are getting nipped. I thought i had more females then i do... i have abut 5 males and 8 females
