Since the OP has had some 80 betta in only 4 years I suspect they keep it hush hush when fish die, which seems like it happens a lot.

That makes sense. I am surprised they buy expensive Bettas.

Most bettas are expensive here in Oz. Not uncommon to pay $50 for a poor quality HM at most of the fish stores I have been to.

Very risky business. All betta males perk up and show off when they see a female. All you have to do is pull a sorority girl put her in a jar, then place it in front of a boys tank. Boys show off at first, flare, zip around., run away very excited. Also have seen them get along very well at first in the spawn tub..part of courtship. Then the other phase kicks in and you see the chase, nips and jumps, Ive seen a girl leap 8 inches and bounce off the spawn tub lid..ok time to go. Since the OP female is very likely not conditioned at all she will be terrified by it all. It may take a while but the outcome willl probly be a negative result. So why take chances like this with the health of the fish? Over 80 fish in 4 yrs in not so good. Most betta diseases can be prevented with good care in the first place or quickly fixed with proper knowledge and use of medications. Take the good advise given to you by people who have more experience. Do the right thing. Its like drinking and driving... you can get away with it for a while but eventually the odds are against you. Nobody says you cant do this..your fish right. Just saying you shouldn't is all.

Wow I would only pay that for high quality fish. Highest priced we have here is $30 for kings and $25 for DTHM like my male.

I might be getting a 3 tank. But I would have to behave and keep my room clean for months. And it will be an Imbellis.
