Most likely I would only be able to care for 2 or if one or both of the parents die 4 but all of my male bettas are petstore quality bettas. My female is a yellow dragon but I cant condition them and my males are probably too old to spawn.

we're not ignoring your question, I'm pretty sure this PARTICULAR thread was not about her age but about her stress stripes. Unless I missed it in your original post, you didn't mention anything about whether she's too old.

Now stop caring about her age and start caring about how to breed properly. Her age doesnt matter unless she's simply too YOUNG.

1. I brought the fish (male, female) down into our basement (because I don’t have a heater and it is over 75 degrees down there) and she still has her normal color, although she has 7-8 black stripes running length ways down her body (not the thick stress stripes she had before)
2. I show the female the male several times and she doesn’t get the thick horizontal stripes nearly as quickly.
Next Day (today)
1. I move the fish to a slightly less out of the way, but slightly cooler location.
2. I show the female the male (same thing happens today as yesterday).
3. I let the male and female see each other at a distance, the male goes crazy (he literally looks like he is demented he was moving around so fast.
4. The female gets those thick stress stripes although she isn’t as pale.
5. I read the isolation thread in this forum, so I slide a piece of black paper in between their tanks.
6. >>>Currently<<< The female has her normal color with those 7-8 slight stripes horizontally.
So what are your thoughts?
see bold ^
