I have had agressive males before and I have learned that you have to treat them a little differnetly before they can be bred without killing the female acidentally.
Right now the are in the divider tank with red cover. They will be allowed to see one another 2x a day. On the morning they ate pellet and evening blood worm. That is all to it. Both of them are aggressive to me.

My last spawn the male did not even touch the female. They were so peaceful. I now still have over 100 fries at 7 weeks and 5 days.

Remember do not feed the male while caring for eggs so live food and a large meal help prepare for egg raising.

All these new and interesting Breeds and colors wouldn't be created if it weren't for crossing other colors or tail types in some cases CB.. It's not always a bad idea.. I would love to see the outcome of this spawn

Ok thank you Mo; it is a go then... Thank you Junglist for the male, Chocolate, Mo, and Creat for comments. The father did produce beautiful babies if you watch the video of his boy and girl bettas.

Honestly there's no point in trying to keep a color pure with marbles IMO.. I would really like to see the results of the spawn.. I see nice potential for Form and amazing eye popping colors

I agree with mo. There's nothing wrong with mixing genes or colours. Good luck on your spawn Tan!

Mixing giants to kings is OK - IMO they are basically the same, the difference being giants have pure giant genes while kings do not. Color wise too isn't a problem. The male should carry a few hidden genes and the female is a multi - the more colors the better.

I'd breed them - keep the mother in a rather small container to stunt her growth and boost fry's growth. Take the best (to your preference) fry and breed back to mom. If you let mom grow further, fry might not be able to out grow her in time.

As for aggressiveness - I prefer them aggressive. Non aggressive female might hide more which will make aggressive males attack .... more risky. Aggressive female usually spawns faster. Just make sure that she is in breeding mode when you release her - older/bigger giants females are often harder to breed and males can be more deadly.

It sounds like you are doing everything right at they seem to be acting normal as well, some fish are more agressive and I would expect the female to get a few tears as the male needs to show her he is boss.

I would go ahead with the spawn and let us know how it turns out :)

Oops .... did I misunderstand .... Your female is not a giant? (Just read the last post on fancy spawn (1)

My bad ..... anyway she does have better form (compared to male). A slightly smaller male with better form can be bred to her.
