    I tried it once. Its a very interesting process to watch. I had hundreds of eggs hatch but I didn't have any survive beyond a couple weeks. At the time I really didn't know what I was doing and didn't have a proper heater. Looking back I did several things wrong, but it doesn't really seem that difficult if you have the right equipment. Good luck!

    The www.oscarfish.com forum has several experienced betta breeders, you might try there. There are some very knowledgeable people there.

    I have been a betta breeder for the last 5 years.
    I could go on and on and tell you how hard it is and blah blah, but I've found a website that sums it up better then I could:
