Question Small female!

Hello I have a small female CT, she's about 1.5 inches in full length and I can tell she's full of eggs. I have a CT male that is about 2 inches or a little more and I was wondering if they would be suitable to breed if she's so small? She has vertical stripes that she just got yesterday but it could be for breeding or maybe because I have another female of the same size in the other side of a split tank they are in. would appreciate any help and hits I can get thank you!

Her vertical stripes mean she can be bred, but unless you are prepared, don't do it! You need multiple tanks, food for the fry, and a lot of time and effort, no to mention money! And the female is big enough to breed as long as the male is a similar size to her.

im ready I already have three larger tanks and a few small ones as well, have already hatched bbs but trying to grow them out to help conditioning. and yes I know I already have about $500 invested between tanks, heaters, filters, food, lights, and several other things. I just wanted to make sure that she would be big enough. I could take pictures of male and female to show size difference if that would help

As long as they flirt when they see another betta, you can breed them. I personally would rather breed a 5-6 month old betta . . . almost full sized.
