the problem is, my male betta i got from walmart, and he looks pretty old. i think that may be my main problem at hand. so im bidding on a halfmoon male to breed with her. i can tell their ages just by looking at them. the female is so vivid with her dark blue and the male just looks a pale pink color and pale purple fins. i dont think he knows what to do. my female knows what to do though. i just think hes way too aggressive because of his age.

Please don't breed them. You aren't doing it for the right reasons. I can't believe you are relying on some guy to take all the "extra" fry, that alone tells me you shouldn't breed. Do you even know if all those craigslist people knew how to properly take care of bettas?

This is just me, but I have a big problem with somebody giving away baby bettas for food, especially since you are breeding them on purpose.

Why the hell are you so desperate to breed fish if you don't care what happens after they are spawned? Why would you breed bettas to become feeder fish? What is the point?

Don't bid on a male!!!!!! You shouldn't even be thinking about breeding right now, just STOP and chill for a few months. You are rushing in too fast.

And by the way, the more color developed on a betta the older they are, so the whole "I can tell their ages just by looking at them" is just not right.

Young bettas are dull.

and im not breeding them just for feeder fish. i am breeding because i want to take fish care to a next level, but it seems im still very much at the beginner level. i thought it would be cool to see the babies, etc.
but, it took a horrible wrong turn, as i was once a favored member here, but all i get now is ridicule for stupid things im doing, which i should, but its gettin old.

You should never breed because "it would be cool to see the babies".. I hope you weren't serious.
