May be another month. She is the best one that I had left. If you feed her frozen blood worm (that is what I use to condition my breeding pair), I think 1 month she will be ready.

If you do, try to use smaller male (too big male is hard for her); she is kind of small. She is 4 months; every site I visit says 4 month is ok. But I think at least 5 months is much better. In Vietnam, I bred them around 8-9 months.

Batta Talk expert really recommend young betta. Combine new information and my old information, I think 5 month old female is good. But I think she needs to have good blood worms. I got a package with 32 cubes for $5 or so; I cut cube into 1/2 so I have 64 that can be used for 40 days or more.

You now have MW and BBS eggs to practice making fry food. I do not use use light for BBS egg hatching. Room temperature is good but it takes longer to hatch.

Again the female needs another month with good food.

Hey Tan, thanks for all of the great information. I got frozen blood worms the other day so I have a large supply. I'll do just like you said and do some more research before even attempting this. Thanks again you are very helpful.
