Let's see growth of betta fish together.
But these pictures cannot use as standard because some blood or colors has a bit quickly growing rate or a bit slowly growing rate than these pictures.
After they hatch from eggs...
When they are 3 - 10 days old , I feed them by...
disperse chicken red egg in water
When they are 10 days old , brine shrimp or water flea is the best food for them.

When you choose the best male and female for breeding already and have follow my advice about tips for breeding betta fish.
The next step is put both male and female together into spawn tank. Today I have some hidden pictures during their spawning process and I would like to show it to you.
After 1-2 nights , Your bettas will...
Yeah!!! The male....the female ,and a lot of eggs are dropping from the female's stomach. The male will loosen and hug , loosen and hug...loosen and hug the female until all of female's eggs come out.
Each loosen and hug , the male will looking for eggs and keep them up into his bubble nest (air bubble which on the top of water)
When the male finished breeding process , you can see a lot of eggs on his air bubble nest.
And this is their children after the breeding process finished ,they hatch within 2-3 days.

Today is a very good day!!
Hehehe...I want to show how to prepare water for betta fish. Let's see it together.
I prepare water for betta fish with this 30 gallons plastic tank.
And I usually add a little salt into water for betta fish. !! A little salt only. For 30 gallons of water, I add salt about... Let's see the picture.
Yeah!! 30 gallons of water...just add salt about the above picture. That's enough!!
The last component is...
Indian Almond Leave. Only one big size leave for 30 gallons of water.
For Indian Almond leave , you can add 2 , 3 , 4 , 5... leaves but I add only 1 leave because the color of water will change to a little yellow which I can see my betta fish's natural color. If the color of water change to dark yellow or brown , I cannot see my betta fish's natural color.
Then add tap water to the tank until full of tank. Add salt into the water and put Indian Almond Leave into the water. Leave it at least 1 day and pull Indian Almond Leave out of water tank. Now you can use this water for your betta fish but the better way is wait another 24 hours because all of clorine will evaporate.
I usually prepare water for my betta fish with this solution and replace betta fish's water 2 times per week.
NO DISEASE , NO FISH ILL...THEY ARE ALL HEALTHY AND ACTIVE. HAHAHA!!!!

I usually add a little salt when I prepare water for betta fish. Salt can reduce stress of betta fish and increase ion to tap water. The best ratio when you add salt to water for betta fish is 1 ppm - 3 ppt. (1 ppt = 1 g / 1 liter of water and 1 ppm = 1g / 1 ton of water)
Salt also reduce disease growing rate. Betta fish live in a backwater so it is great if you add a little salt into it. Salt can protect them from disease.
When I send fish to my customer who live in other countries , I never forget to add a little salt into betta fish's water.
Yeah!!!! SALT REDUCE BETTA FISH' S STRESS. HALFMOON SPECIES WILL BITE THEIR FIN IF THEY ARE VERY STRESS!!!!
