Hi everyone! I'm really excited as this week I will be recieving my first bettas to try my hand at breeding, and by all means I want to do everything right. So i'm curious, what are your set ups like? I've seen many breeders keep them in jars and do daily water changes, can you tell me the size of those jars and where you get them? Look at me as a blank slate, I'm looking to mimic the best ways to do things, so teach me your ways :)

I breed in 10 gallon tanks filled with 4 gallons of water and heated to 82F. The tanks are filled by week 3 and the fry are separated to grow outs at 2.5-3 months. Males are jarred as soon as I can recognize them into either beanie baby containers or 3/4 gallon jars. The jars I have are from CCW distributors. I change the tanks 50% every other day and the jars 100% every other day.
