NO never put two males together to try to enduce them to fight, this is not only cruel but you will also have to condition your males much longer so that they can regrow there fins so just keep them apart. On another note however if you place a male (in another container) near your betta in a breeding tank it will make the male in the breeding tank jealous and this could help him build a bigger bubble nest and this will help the mating proccess a bit easier.

if possible try and throw a few live plants in there for oxygen and try to keep the bowls pretty warm because bettas like warmer water, i usually keep mine at 86 degrees when spawning. And if they are small bowls make sure you dont keep them in there too long bettas need room to swim and if they will be in smaller bowls make sure you do daily water changes.

i have 4 live plants and one is in each of the bettas bowls.the smallest bowl i have is about the size of the container they came in ans she seems to be doing good.she likes to flirt with my male but im going to seperate them when i get home from school.the smallest bowl is getting cleaned everyday with warm water.i dont have a thermometer to measure the waters temp.but my dad has a tank and its water is at 80 degrees farenheit.so i just feel the water and i put her bowl at the same temp.my male is interested in my blue female,the one that got wrapped around by my other betta.they are both blue so i want to breed them.my other two are both light colored but one is orange and another is like pinkish with purple fins.

okay another thing here! DONT put warm water in their bowl if you dont plan on using a heater to keep it at that temp. Always put room temp water in there because the change in temp is very stressful for not only bettas but all fish, but yes just seperate them and just keep conditioning and then you can try to breed them at a later date

Temperature fluctuations can make them sick.
