Male and female bettas in same bowl?

Can you put a male and female betta in the same bowl without them fighting? anyway to prevent little ones from appearing? How difficult is it to raise and find homes for bettas if they were to breed?

Do NOT put them in the same bowl. Ever.

I had my male and female pair in a 29 gallon tank, and they did fine. But I still wouldnt recomend it. My male was friendly and docile.
It depends on the temperment on your betta, but never put them in the same bowl. Its to small and the female will have no where to get away from the male if he starts to harrass her. If you were to keep them in a large tank, they might be okay as lon as the female has many MANY hiding places.

It is neve reccommended to keep a male and female together. That would be a disaster waiting to happen. Guppy Girl, did yours ever spawn while they were together?

You're welcome. If you want to breed, do your reearch beforehand,so you'll kno what to expect, what you'll need and how to do it. :)

Naw they never spawned. to many other fish in the tank. and the water wasnt right for spawning. Would have been cool if they did though
