Pair looks ready to breed...

Soooo, I just got this cute little female betta. She's sharing a divided 10 gal with one of my males. My male so sooooo excited over her. He's made her grand bubble nests, and every time she swims near him, he "fluffs up" and does his little dance for her. It's so cute, and I'd like to see what happens, but ive never done this before, and I dont want her to get hurt...What do you think?

Are you prepared to raise fry? Have you done any research on breeding?

I highly suggest you do some research before you even consider breeding. It's not like breeding live bearers, there's a lot of work involved and you need to know what your doing.

For one thing you'd be mixing a CT with another tail type which is an undesirable cross that will most likely yield ugly fins in the F1, that will make it very hard to find homes for the fry. If your fish are from pet stores it will be hard to find homes for the fry.


IF you really want to breed I suggest forgetting about the male and female you have now and start doing serious research into breeding. In a few months once you know exactly what your doing then buy a nice pair and go from there.

ETA..

Here are some sites to get you started. I would also highly suggest joining the IBC so you can benefit from the information available to its members.

I appreciate all the advice and those websites were great! Ill just keep them as friends. Is it ok to keep them next to eachother? Will he get to stressed out trying to "impress" her? Thanks again!!

I don't see any problem with leaving them next to each other. I keep mine next to each other and it doesn't seem to bother them.
