Agreed. However I have had males and females live quite happily together for weeks before spawning I don't reccomend it as permanant housing. Definately seperate them and if you want to breed head on over to the breeding section and we can give you the info you need.
Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.
