I dont know how old he is because I bought him from the petco but when I got him he didnt exactly have "full finage" yet but in the last month or so Ive had him he does seemto be fully developed but not even near fully grown. so however that old that makes him.

I also have a new plan well two plans,

Ok so my plan is to buy a male and let him live in the spawn tank for conditioning and such. Then when I want to breed them I could put the female in like normal. After their done the male could go in her original tank and she could go in the one gallon for about a 2-3 months until the fry grow up to adult size and try to introduce her to their tank.
I dont know if I want to wait a 2 weeks and try with my male again.

Also I dont know if I posted it already posted it but I already seperated them, as soon as my male was back in his tank he was acting healthy again, I think he just fakes it because he likes his tank better

Edit- by the way Crowntail I'm a boy :) lol

Haha, nope. It's a long difficult... rewarding process.

If I could keep a male and female together their whole life they might do it, sadly these beautiful fish like to kill each other so it cant happen...the best things in life are always the hardest

They're not like guppies that you can put together and forget about.You have to watch them very carefully so they won't kill each other. But, I'm sure it IS rewarding when you finally get baby fish and know that you had a hand in it.

Thanks but it will be a while before I get to try again, sometime I have to go to the petstore or maybe even aquabid and get me another male betta. And after that I have to condition them for atleast 2 weeks. Ahh it takes forever.

By the way if anyone can find any cheap, good looking crowntails on aquabid, in good breeding age let me know. And when I say cheap I mean REALLY cheap like under $20
