That's exactly my point. Please don't breed. You need to learn all you can about breeding for the next few years, get some knowledge under your belt. Then, if your home is safe from those who would harm your fish, only then you can think about breeding.

Please don't breed now.

Do they have proper form? No bent spines, proper ray countings, sharp edges? Are they different tail types? And if you go on vacation a lot, then breeding has no place in your head. Breeding can cost over thousands of dollars just because of the fishes' well being. Don't get me started on shipping costs. It takes money, time, and space to breed these fish. And if you don't have enough of each, then breeding any animal is not right for you.

Any betta you buy from walmart petco/smart probably will never breed. Its possible but very difficult. If you want to do this you should talk to a breeder and probably get your bettas from hm/her for there better genes.

Not to be off rude, I'm just blunt when I want points across.
Sororities are fun, I'm cycling my tank for one soon.

Look into joining the IBC, maybe you can find a mentor in your area and learn directly from an established breeder.

"Any betta you buy from walmart petco/smart probably will never breed. Its possible but very difficult."
Sorry,but that is not correct.
They will breed as well as a $100.00 pair from a breeder and they are not anymore difficult.
My first spawn was from a pair from Petco,after conditioning they gave a good spawn and I ended up giving away 20 and selling anouther 30.
Is it a good idea to spawn a petstore Betta,probably not,but it is not any harder.
I retired the 2 that gave me my first spawn and have since aquired better quality Bettas.
