probably not.. it's very rare to get a betta from a pet store that people would breed. can you upload a picture?

also, just because he's making a bubble nest, doesn't mean you should breed him. my males nest all the time. doesn't mean i should breed them. :B my best bubble nester is a CT from walmart, a place i'd NEVER breed bettas from.

there's a few good breeders on here, and off Aquabid. good breeders are Martinismommy, Bettascapes.... uumm.... there's a few others, but i can't remember off the top of my head. x-x if you're willing to import bettas from Thailand, your selection increases greatly

EvilVog is a breeder of giant bettas and he has some really nice looking fish available right now.

You can check the classified section to get a link to his website if you're interested in giant bettas.

Chard64 (I am not sure if I got the numbers at the end right!) Also sells on aquabid.

You can also head over to the IBC (International betta congress) and look into joining their organization if you're interested in betta breeding and showing your bettas.

Without seeing a picture of your fish you have now, no one would be able to tell if it's worth breeding.

Welsome to the forum though and grats on your new fish :)
