i am currently trying to breed my two betta fish, the male is a little bit bigger than the female, both have the same colours and both are very active. i have the right food, tank, plants, heating and temp well close too.
i waited a few days for his bubblenest to get nice and thick. when i put her into the tank it wasnt he that got aggressive it was the female, she was seriouly ripping stripes off his anal fin and he was swimming away and hidding. but the thing is i had her in the tank with him for close to a month and they were fine, like the male chanced her a little bit and she chanced him. when i was actually trying to breed them i did everything step by step well close enough, when i was introducing them i was feed them both bloodworms and ect until she was nice and fat with eggs and when i put her in thats when she was aggressive. i went to my local pet store and asked the guy and he just said "sounds like you have a crazy female and if you do breed them the fry will be crazy as well and he said she could be a paradise fish" but she isnt.
does this mean he is too old? or they arent combatible? or he just doesnt know what to do?
any feed back is awesome
