Hi i have set up a tank for 2 fighting fish need help

Hi have set up a tank for 2 fighting fish i have put the fish in and i was woundering if i put in a female fighting with one of them would the male kill her.

My tank is devied into 2 tanks by a glass in the middle so the 2 fish can't gte to each other and it has it's own filter which is at the back and it works by a air pump pushes the water to the left and it goes through the heater which also at the back then goes to to the filter then goes it a last thing where the water gets pulled back in the main tank where the fish are.

I can't make the tank 4 spearte tanks but cuz i only have the 2 fighting fish i don't need to

they each have a little plant that floats ontop of the water

it has gravel at the bottom. i have had the fish for about 4 days now. I feed them mirco pelllets but i started off with betta fish food but they were not eating it so i changed. any tips on anything i could give them?? besides the mirco pellets?

the tank size is 24-high
21-width
29-long

Welcome to the forum!! And to answer your question. Yes. Even if the male is ready to mate,as soon as they mate you have to remove the female. I wouldn't try this unless you are very experienced! If the male isn't ready to mate,he'll attack it the same as he would a male. I would suggest getting a separate tank for the female. They're great! I love mine! Sorry if this sounds too strong If it does I didn't mean to. Good luck!!

I give my fish frozen bloodworms once a week. They like them a lot. :) Just defrost some in a couple drops of tank water, then you can pick the worms up with a toothpick and feed them to your fish.

If the divider is made of glass how does the water circulate from one side to the other?

You should probably get your female a different tank or get your male a different tank. If the divider has a gap on the bottom either one of them can easily slide under it to kill each other. It's a sad but common occurance with divided tanks. I highly recommend getting either one of them a new tank. I would hate for a betta to accidentily get hurt or killed.
