Egg bound can potentially kill a fish.
So yes it can be bad.

But its only if they share the water I believe.

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

How do you tell if she is egg bound? And what do you do if it happens?

Garsh, let's keep the topic on the thread people!! (:
Eggbounding is when a female betta's eggs get stuck in her body. Most of the time she will reabsorb them or something... It's rare for the female to get killed, though.

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

I believe its just that the girl gets eggy and can't release the eggs so she swells.

I don't know from experience but by what I've seen on here so don't hold me to it

But that can potentially happen if girls are with boys

I had a male in my soerity for over a year and never had a problem with egg binding..and also had male/female divided tanks. I dont think it is all that common

Even though tons of people say males aren't compatible with one and another, but i believe every betta has its own personality. By doing so i have a tank that is 10g filled with those fishes. It took me a lot of time and effort to do this but it finally payed off. I will be posting up a video soon.
***update***
Well it came to an end, after two weeks, everything was going good till the red male betta started to constantly chase the female around. Red male betta was very slow at chasing though. Between the two males they actually never nipped, flared, or chased at eachother . My other blue betta would chase a certain female around but nothing too crazy. At the end I moved the red male betta and three females out. Currently have one male and two females bettas. Im planning on getting a 100 gallon and wanting to do it again let me know what you guys think, thanks

Can I ask why you seem so determined to keep male and female bettas together? Splendens really only should come together when spawning. They are generally not a fish that lives comfortably with others of its species.
