3/11/2013 16:37:31JoshBetta StiktosBetta Stiktos6.875About 84 degrees Fahrenheit. Not much. Added a bit of salt. 0.520 gallon long. 30 inches by 12 inches and 14 inches tall.Folsom Tap. 50 percent water change a week before spawning. I continued to add small amounts of water up to the time they spawned. Disposable carbon filter. I turned it off during spawning though. Banana leaf tea & IALLiveNonePiano lamp. They like to spawn in darker areas. Usually in the morning. In all the 5 times that I have spawned splendens complex members, only once have they spawned in the afternoon. Egg LayerNo clue. Probably a little over a hundred.13/3/10March 11th, 2013Freeze dried bloodworms 3 times a day. Small amounts. Infusoria. Nothing else as the fry are still too small for bbs. I plan to feed them on infusoria, decap bbs, frozen cyclops, hikari first bites, and ground flakes until they are adults. In my experience, them spawning is not affected by the water or tank size. I have spawned bettas in half a gallon. (unsuccessfully) Conditioning is the most important part. Condition them separately until the female is fat with eggs. Float her in a bowl in the male's tank until he has a nest going. If he won't build the nest, separate them for a few days and reintroduce. If he ignores her, she probably isn't conditioned enough. Release the female when the male has a decently sized nest. Be prepared and have at least a 20 gallon growout and 50-100 jars. The more the better. These fish are very easy to spawn, but fry raising can be tricky because fry are small. Often too small to eat freshly hatched bbs.

Fry also provided wood and raw sweet potato as food supplements. Powdered food was provided 1-2 times per day. Wood was available continuously; sweet potato was added every 2-3 days.Seven adults (3M:4F) in a species-only tank. A simple aquarium setup with sand or small gravel substrate, 1" - 1.5" diameter bamboo caves and lots of driftwood. A powerhead was added to the tank to increase current, with an airstone suspended in front of the powerhead. Leave the fish alone. They will breed.

Finely pulversized powder made from dry fish flakes, NLS Thera A+ pellets, and freeze-dried Tubifex worms. Fed 2x/dayThe tank was maintained with water level about 3" below glass rim. Fish laid eggs on glass out of water, either on sides of tank or on underside of glass lid. Eggs were scraped off glass and incubated in a tupperware bowl with air stone and java moss.

Fry survival was poor. The adults continue to spawn almost weekly for me, but I have very few fry survive. If anyone knows how to improve fry survival, I'd love to know.

Breeds in tight caves (about 1" internal diameter). They like a tank decorated with wood and rocks and caves. No plants welcome. A single male can start a new spawn about ever 3 weeks.

Something was fed 5 of 7 days/week.BBS, flakes, small pellets. This is a challenging fish. Requires soft water to thrive. Recommend multiple hiding places for adults. Spawned under a 12"x12" tile at one end of the tank. Once they spawn parents take good care of the fry. Be sure to remove the fry by 1.5" or they will be picked on by adults. Either hardness or pH effects sex ratio. I got mostly females. I suspect lower pH will result in more males. Super cool fish worth working with.

Then moved to 50% vegetable flake and 50% earthworm flake for growing out about three times per day.This species is very easy to raise from fry to adults; however, the biggest hurdle is to keep the fry from become lunch for the parents. so I would recommend separating the pregnant female just before she is ready to drop into her own tank. my female gave birth in the morning and others have noted the same time frame as well. Once the female has dropped her fry you can remove her and begin feeding the young with baby brine shrimp. after a few weeks they are comfortably eating fine smashed flake food.
