Lethbridge is right. Aggression is part of the breeding process. If it gets out of hand then you need to separate them. You need to watch them like a hawk.

I hate to tell you but you are going to have to be patient. lol But you already know that. You can't rush it. Just ask Vikki, Andakin, Lethbridge and the other breeders here.

i personally wouldnt try breeding again in a few days you said that your female had lost some of her fins well give her time to grow them back, and you siad she dropped all her eggs, she wont be ready in 4 or 5 days you need to wait ATLEAST 16 days before trying again. More than one pair would be best, i have three pairs and you can condition them all at the same time and then try to find which pair works best. just be patient that is a big key

You just have to be patient like i am currently conditioning my bettas and i am doing it for 3 weeks just remember the longer you condition the greater chance you have of getting eggs

i would highly recommend making sure that all your bettas do not see each other during conditioning periods, this will help the males store all there energy instead of wasting it all on flaring at the female and frantically trying to swim toward them. You can occationally show the female to the male to get him mor "excited" but other that that just leave them apart so they can fully condition
