Question Bernice ?

I was wondering if I should breed my betta.... Yes of course I have been doing research but when will she get the eggs? Should I bring i the male and seperate them with a divider then she will or what?

The pair needs to be conditioned first. I'll let the breeders explain more about the process.

If you need to ask this question, I would say you haven't done enough research to breed. Breeding bettas is a complex thing that can end up with one or both bettas dead. It's not something for beginners to try just for the heck of it. It requires planning, hard work, and money to get it all started. You'll also need a place to send these babies, which might take some effort. I would say just stick with the girl you have, and be content with that. Otherwise, you could lose her and the boy. Sorry if this sounds rude, but it kind of seems like you're a beginner, as you didn't even know what bubblenests were...?

Yeah you need tons of research. But after that, and after conditioning you should be able to.

Keep in mind fifteen minutes ago you asked how you can tell if your female has eggs. A few hours googling things won't suffice.

I'm sorry I'm bothering you, but I'm trying to tell you that breeding bettas isn't something you just decide you want to do one day, and do it the next day! Breeding bettas requires months, literally months, of work! And really, beginners should not breed these fish! By the time you're ready to do this, you won't be considered a beginner anymore. Conditioning the bettas themselves takes weeks. Then the breeding, in which bettas have been known to be killed, even when done by someone who has kept bettas for a long time. Then you have to wait up to two to three months to even see what colors they'll be. When breeding these fish, there's a lot of room for failure. Please reconsider, at least until you're absolutely positive that you know how to do this.
