Of course. But is is highly unlikely that you'll end up with three fry if you breed betta fish. You'd most likely end up with 10 or more. And as I said before it is a possibility you could end up with 300 fry.

Yep, definitely. Or you could have a sorority of females- 4 to 6 in a ten gallon tank would be fine.

Their is your problem. The females are just as great as a male. I have one, who is more active then most of my males. And just as much color. And my female is larger than one of my males. As for gravel, choose what you want, I wouldn't suggest anything that can fit in a Betta's mouth.

P.S. They are developing long finned females.

...Females aren't necesarily smaller or duller. I'm shipping in a female tommorow and she's quite pretty. Here are is a female betta, for example...- She's the second one (blue and red with the white patch of scales on her nose) and the one that's coming tommorow.

The ones you see in pet stores are dull though- I know where you got that from... all the ones I see are gray.
You could use either colored gravel or natural gravel, whatever you like. But make sure you rinse it really well before you put it in the tank.
