I apologize for side one as, she was not being cooperative so, I couldnt get her head and face. Top one, I could get easily.

My problem is that, she is the biggest female I have and, I can't breed her with any of my males. They are unable to wrap, due to her size. Any suggestions on what type of betta to get, in order for me to spawn her? She is definitely ready. She dropped several unfertilized eggs already.

Thank you for your help.

Because she is swishing her tail its hard to tell what type she is. Any pics of her tail staying still? I know its very hard getting them to stay still haha

She looks like she could be a hm or superdelta but its very hard to tell with the pic

You said she's too big for your males to embrace her? Could she be a king? o_O I would have no idea otherwise. All the females I see are pretty small.

Female bettas (not of king and giant size) are actually really large and tend to outgrow adult males. She is most likely just an adult female, and your males either need to catch up some, or she is fully grown and most males won't catch up.

She looks to be a salamander/lavender big eared HMPK - but without the 180 spread (typical not to have a 180 spread in this color combo.. especially ones bred a bit ago). She is just a full grown adult is all.. pond raised (especially (at the betta farm)) or larger tank raised females will grow really big, easily 3" body wise (not a giant/king).. the very small females are the ones you get that are kept in smaller containers their whole lives.

So I would make sure she stays in something a bit smaller and give the males some time to catch up if possible..

She is in a sorority tank with 3 other females. I use IAL and the water was too dark, so I put her in a glass to show how big she was. I would never put my babies in something small. That is a drink glass for baileys, to show her size. :)

Basic salamander EE HMPK girl :) Females will get really big depending upon what they grew up in :)

A couple of mine similar - the "salamander" variety tend to have the white trims.. have 2 girls that look exactly alike, and then the boy.. love his red, but unsure whether I want to keep him and breed him or not lol. These colors (like the OP's) are pretty much the common variety you see most often.
(No, the female isn't that pink.. was playing around with florescent lighting lol)

He's not bad.. you'll get regular PK (not HMPK) it looks like.. can't tell as he's not flaring. And a mix of colors... no elephant ears though :(
