Well of course it doesn't have ALL the answers, some things you just need to talk to an experienced breeder to learn and understand, but the answers to all of these questions I could find on google.

Okay, I REALLY don't want to sound rude.....but if you've done a months worth of research and you still don't know what conditioning is....you haven't researched enough. Conditioning and how to do so was one of the first things I learned when I started researching on how to breed. I highly, highly recommend you take some time and head to google and read up as much as you can. I can also direct you to a site where there are many experienced breeders that you can talk with/ask questions to/or even just read their spawning logs and experiences...but its another forum, so I'm probably not aloud to to post it, but send me a PM if your interested and I'll send you a link.

Though, to my knowledge, Betta Splendens are aggressive because thy were originally bred and raised in Thailand for fighting. Somewhere along the line though people started to produce a longer-finned version for showing. Not sure of the details or anything, never really looked into it that deeply, but I'm sure a couple more experienced keepers on here could tell you, or you could fins something about it with a little search on google ;)

I think there are some questions that only an experienced breeder can answer. I can answer a few questions about breeding but since I've never done it, there are some thinngs I can't answer like dragonfish, MrVampire or Cindylou can, because of their experience.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to sound rude or seem like I thought you were sounding rude...that isn't at all what I thought about your comment. D: I do greatly apologize, I'm rather sick at the moment, and I already stink at explaining things to begin with.... :P

But I have to disagree, I found google to be a very reliable resource when I did my research, I found many very helpful sites that outlined the breeding process very well. The key is just you have to read, and read, and read....double check your info with other sites...triple check it...then try and search for the experiences of successful breeders to check your info again. Google is a very reliable resource, IMO/E :)
