My first breeding

TOday i put a female betta in my male betta's tank, its the first time that i try to cross my bettas so i want everything to be perfect...
everything goes as planned, the only thing that anoys me is that the male acts a little agressive with the female, i don't released the female yet, but he attacks her behind the glass... its normal this?

Aggression is totally normal... on my first spawning attempt, I was freaking out about how aggressive my male was being, but it is totally normal and the females are faster then the males any way, so they can usually get away. Just make sure you have LOTS of plants in your tank. (Preferably live)

Yep. Let him get a big old nest and it will not only make her want to breed, but it will also mean he's ready. :)

Good luck!
