It's perfectly normal, and it means that both of them are ready to spawn. I would suggest that u release the female. U should see some wrapping action pretty soon. Do monitor them tho. Good luck.

I think I'd hold off letting the female out just yet. She has breeding stripes but she doesn't look too thrilled to be there.

Agreed, I'd wait. She is all clamped up and is not in a submissive position yet (head down at a 45* angle). Did you condition her? She doesn't really look to be in breeding condition... but that might be the lighting. It's hard to see her.

You're supposed to condition each fish for two weeks, as in, you feed them healthy live foods and keep their water super clean, you change their water more than normal, and other stuff. I'm not a breeder, however many on this forum are.

squal90, conditioning is a pretty simple process, but if you haven't done it yet then you should separate your bettas into separate heated tanks while you do it. Conditioning is very important; conditioned parents make healthy fry. Additionally, unconditioned bettas are more likely to get sick or die following breeding since it is very stressful.

Conditioning: You just feed your pair lots of good foods like frozen (NOT FREEZE DRIED) blood worms, glassworms, brine shrimp and live things like mosquito larva or wingless fruit flies. During this 2 week period you should not allow the two fish to see each other and you should keep their water cleaner than it has ever been before.

How much research have you done? What kind of breeding set up do you have?
