Talking What i learned in breeding

well i almost gave up on a pair i was breeding and this was on youtube but this is what i learned: condition the female, introduce, bubble nest and then let the male betta beat the heck outta the female and then they spawn. this is really weird. thats what my betta pair did.

Most ethical breeders try their hardest to not allow the pair to get too injured during spawning. A well conditioned and properly introduced pair should not kill each other. That is why the female is jarred so the male can become accustomed to her. In extreme cases the roles may be switched and the aggressive male jarred while the female establishes the territory.

I would not accept any advise from someone who openly suggests allowing the male to "beat the crap" out of the female. No spawn is worth that.

Agreed. Though sometimes it does happen it's not worth puttign either fish in danger to get a spawn.

Yes it does happen but the point of jarring the female and all the other hullabaloo we go through is to try to prevent as much of the damage as possible.

I get so nervous when they start to go at each other... one of my females killed a beautiful CT male awhile back. He just couldnt recover from his fins being torn. I medicated him and nursed him for a few days.. but he still died. so be careful.........
