Do you have anymore sites? I've actually read all those, Lol. Anyone who has more sites about breeding bettas, post 'em here.

Thanks for being helpful <3.

Thanks Mr. Vamp. I've actually seen your site already, but I didn't go to the actual breeding tab. I love that you made the videos! Great way to explain things as well.

I prefer to have an equal number of males and females. If your talking back ups your going to want an extra male and an extra female because you never know which fish is going to not want to spawn.

Remember when looking for your pairs that the female is just as important (some may say more) than the male is. Many fish favor the female's side more than the male's side. It can be hard to look past a flashy male but ALWAYS ask for pictures of the female so you can look at her structure and branching. This is really important if your looking to produce good halfmoons.


If you have any more questions don't hesitate to ask.. there are plenty of people here that use a variety of different methods so you'll get a bit of every opinion... which IMO is much better than just getting one opinion from one website.

BTW.. have you considered joining the IBC? (The International Betta Congress). There is a WEALTH of knowledge available to new members not to mention the experience of breeders who have been breeding bettas for decades and breeders producing show quality fish. You can also join the 'Betta Pals' program and qualify for a free pair of fish.

Actually almost all of the info the IBC gives out is to members. On their yahoo group they have.... ALOOOOOOOOOOT of info. And then you learn just how strict it is 0.0

IMO anyone who breeds should only breed show quality fish... but hey, I just want to see more perfect Bettas Lol. But yeah, the crowntail thing, I haven't researched it much but I hear you have to think of a bunch of different factors with the tail in particular, the spines have to be a certain length apart, have to start at a certain point... there has to be a specific number. Just CT breeding is a bit difficult Lol, and they tend to be more aggessive due to light finage... so...

Thanks NIB - Read that one too. Lol.

And Baylee, I looked at the IBC site, I can't join right now. I want too, but I don't have any money this week, things just come up </3. But I'll be joining and reading up on them soon.

And what do you mean by Strict o.o?
