Dressagerider101 - Ok so...
I have bred bettas and they are a LOT of work. I don't mean to go on the whole responsibiliy spiel again, but just double check to make sure that you have the time, money, and recources to breed. Spawning can cost upwards of hundred of dollars, and will take up hours of your time. But, I think it is definately worth it.
What are your goals? What kind of fish do you want to breed? Crowntails? Halfmoons? Veiltails? (<--- some will tell you not to breed VTs, but I belive with the proper pair, one can get a good line going) Platkats? Doubletails? Take a look on aquabid.com and see if you can find a string (color or tail type) that you really like. or, would want to breed with. I bred for red Halfmoons.
Be aware, you are going to need LOTS of stuff. and I mean LOTS and LOTS of stuff. Prepare for your entire house to be colonized with betta stuff.
Just a little tidbit to contribute. The best way to learn? Read. Stalk threads, send messages, and NEVER BE AFRAID TO ASK QUESTIONS! :) I still do! :)
