My recent black spawn was three months. Depends on the maturity of the fish. You will find they tear each other up less when younger.

You will find most of us "breeders" try to get them bred by 4 months. They are easy to spawn and do not tend to do as much damage. I often can breed them a few times and still have great finnage to show.

These fish are 3 months.. mature and very ready to spawn.

Hmm, the ones i got came from a breeder too... The male was by himself but the female was with a sorority. He has grown since Ive had him too, I am surprised, but she doesnt look like she has grown at all.

The history of bettas being shipped all over the globe for their genes goes back to the 70's and 80's; the first breeder to start creating for halfmoons sent his breeding males to several other breeders in Europe and the U.S. Every halfmoon in existence is a descendant of that first prototype halfmoon male. The story is a fascinating read: http://bettysplendens.com/articles/p...articleid=1024
Wow! Crazy stuff!
