Yes. I currently have it in my twenty gallon, and it is perfectly capable of fitting in a ten gallon aquarium.

Question

Can this be used for betta?

Because the male Betta plays mom when it comes to breeding Betta, would I place the male in the breeding tank with the eggs/fry?
thanks!

answer 2
Yes and no.

Breeding bettas is a really time consuming hobby. The male needs free-roam of the tank with the water level half full, and the tank should be at least 5 gallon for a breeding tank (and regular home tank, too. They're happier in bigger spaces and live longer, too.) but a ten gallon is better.

The male builds the bubble nest, and needs plenty of room to swim to get the falling eggs.

If you want to get this, put the female in it and remove the divider so she doesn't feel so trapped. This will protect her from the male's showing off, or if he's aggressive toward her.

Bottom line is, only use this to keep the female safe while she inspires the male to make his nest. When it comes to breeding, release her into the actual tank. The eggs will fall to the floor and the male can grab them.

Good luck!

put them in a 5-10 gallon tank put one male and one female betta fish. after she laid her eggs put her in a seperate tank. now the male will put the eggs in a bubble. then get the male in a seperate tank away from the female and just wait. now that they're fry seperate the males the females can be together but the males CANNOT they will kill each other! and then they grow up but i have to warn you that the female betta can hatch up to 600 eggs but you never know what will happen. hope this helps.

You might want to learn a little more about bettas before you attempt to breed them. Breeding bettas is risky if not done carefully and if the person does not understand the risks, worst case scenario the fish could die from an inexperienced person attempting to breed these aggressive fish for the first time. Breeding bettas is a very delicate dance that should only be attempted by individuals who understand these fish. But there are forums that can help you and provide that information.

Question

Concerning 3-way breeder cat. #10255 medium size, If I put a pregnant female danio in the breeder and add a male danio, will the eggs be fertilized.

Will the female danio drop her eggs in this breeder and will the eggs be fertilized by a male in the same breeder? Also, do I need to isolate the female from the male to "fatten" her up before adding both of them into the breeder? Is there any way to determine when the female is ready to lay her eggs? Does she have to look really really fat or just a little fat? Do I have to put more than one male in the breeder with her to ensure the eggs will be fertilized?

That was a lot of questions! I have bred neon tetras, which are similar in their habits to zebra danios, so I will try to help.
Whenever a female decides to drop her eggs, the males will want to be there. It is in their nature. So yes, if you have a male with her, he will fertilize her eggs.
You should probably keep the males and females separate during the conditioning stage. My tetras were constantly chasing each other around, driving me and them nuts. You do not want a stressed out female, so you should probably keep them separate. Give them plenty of live foods!
You can fairly easily tell when a female is ready. Don't look at her from the side-- they often look fat just from food that way-- look from above. If you can see a significant bulge on either side of her, she is probably heavy with eggs. Some females are fatter than others when they are read to drop their eggs. I had one tetra that was as skinny as a bone but actually dropped a lot of eggs. Just condition the females for about a month and then introduce the males.
You should probably introduce more males than females. This way you can be sure that one of the males isn't sterile and all your efforts are for nothing.
One last thing-- consider adding a spawning mop and putting down a layer of marbles on the bottom of the breeder. The danios will lay their eggs in the mop, and any of them that drop will go in between the marbles so the parents can't eat them.
I hope this helps!

Most likely the fry will escape. However, the net breeder does not have a separate birthing area for the female. Unless you are watching her closely, she will probably cannibalize her fry. I don't know if this would work, but you could try putting the net breeder around the other one. You may have to use a little bit of cotton string to tie everything together.
I hope that this is helpful!
