 Hi,
 
 I  did  bred  them  successfully.    Have  three  males  of  around  2"  size,  born  in  my  tank  Cheer    Thumb Up  
 
 As  of  now,  have  three  males  and  three  females.
 
 Sometime  back  I  posted  my  male  betta,  which  I  lost  recently  because  of  it's  old  age.    Two  out  of  three  females  are  nearing  to  it's  final  day.  They  are  with  me  for  the  past  16  months.    Bought  them  from  a  local  breeder  at  Madurai.
 
 What  kind  of  info  you  need?

 Simple  way  is  take  a  12  to  15  inch  vessel  which  should  be  clean  preferebly  sterilized  and  pour  clean  water  and  the  water  should  be  of  superiour  quality.  add  some  plans  which  are  clean  take  all  precausions  to  make  it  free  from  deseases.  now  put  the  male  and  female  in  that  and  close  it  with  a  card  board  and  dont  make  it  air  tight.  Let  some  air  go  inside.  now  you  should  forget  them  for  two  days.  Dont  open  and  see.  after  two  days  you  open  it  and  can  see  bubles  and  white  color  eggs  in  that.  Now  without  disturbing  the  nest  remove  the  female  with  your  hands  no  net  please.  now  the  male  will  take  care  of  the  eggs.  in  24  to  48  hours  the  eggs  will  start  hatching  and  will  live  with  the  egg  sac  for  two  days  and  you  have  to  feed  the  fry  with  infusoria  or  microworms  worst  case  use  the  fry  food  available  in  the  stores.  Betta  fries  are  very  small  and  can  not  eat  baby  brine  shrimps  so  use  infusoria  or  microworms.  once  you  see  that  the  fries  are  free  swiming  you  have  to  remove  the  male  and  pray  got  for  the  fries.
 Important  not.
 1.  You  should  prepare  the  male  and  female  for  2  weeks.  I  mean  give  thekm  good  food.
 2.  Dont  feed  them  at  the  time  of  spawing.
 3.  Dont  feed  the  male  when  it  is  taking  care  of  the  fries.
 4.  After  removing  the  female  from  the  spawning  bucket  and  feed  her  well.
 5.  Remove  the  male  once  you  see  that  the  fries  are  free  swiming  and  feed  him  well.
 
 Not  all  the  times  you  will  end  up  having  fries
 Sometimes  the  female  or  male  will  eat  the  eggs  and  also  fries.
 I  had  experience  the  pair  swallowed  all  the  eggs  after  spawning
 
 young  bettas  are  poor  fathers
 you  will  have  good  luck  after  the  3rd  time  you  allow  them  to  spawn.
 First  few  times  the  male  betta  will  eat  the  eggs  or  fries  and  might  over  treat  the  eggs  and  kill  the  fries.  Eventually  he  will  learn.  You  have  to  be  patient.  Select  you  male  and  female  carfully  and  take  care  of  them  nicely.  You  will  have  luck.  Patience  is  important.  Normally  you  will  have  400-500  egss  and  end  up  having  few  hundreds  to  few  fries  growing  till  adulthood.
 
 Regards,
 Mohan.

 I'm  sorry  if  my  intensions  went  wrong  there.
 
 I  was  not  trying  to  correct  the  spelling...  but,  what  I  meant  is  "Instead  of  praying  for  God)  feed  your  fry  quality  food  and  keep  the  water  clean,  the  fry  will  grow  fast"
 
 I  corrected  the  original  message  as  well,  hope  the  message  is  clear  now    Smile
