Oh? Do you think she (if she is a she) would be better paired with another betta, or should be could she still possibly breed?

some girls are really tough (my sister made that mistake once). Some have to be treated just like boys and be in their own little tank. You can still breed them but you'll need a boy who can stand up for himself thats for sure lol

Yeah, for sure! Unfortunately as of now, only two of my males have ever built a bubble nest (one seems vehemently opposed to any sort of effort whatsoever) and none have ever bred before. I also fear that two of them may be too old (they are absolutely ginormous) for breeding anyway. Sigh.

Well that's good at least! I just wish my males were up to the challenge! I need to find myself a good breeder in my city.

Thats a female alright. Your males just needs to be aggressive and stand up to her. Try adding some IAL in the container or tank that he's in I'm sure he'll feel good and be aggressive

Will do. Where would the best place to buy the leaves be? Online or in-store? Any recommendations would be amazing!

You just need to condition her VERY well in order to breed her. My little girl (despite being a veiltail and all anyways) would never be used as a breeder. She's just as bad as a male and whenever she sees my boy when I clean the tanks and have them in cups side by side she will try to attack him through the glass and tried to jump into his cup but luckily she has a cover over hers.

Hmmm. All right, other than feeding her good food and keeping her in a heated tank with periodic water changes, what else would you suggest to condition her better? I'm new to the breeding scene but I'm doing my best to learn.
