His top lobe is slightly smaller than the bottom but it may even out :)

If your guy is tiny, try keeping him in the 20g and hope he will grow faster than the female. Under the same conditions they will grow at the same rate - often, DT grows slower (IDK why) than ST. So he will unlikely grow bigger than the female (until they are fully grown/ much older) unless you boost his growth and stunt hers.

Oh I hadnt thought of putting him in the big tank yet, I fear he might get territorial if he has lived there for longer :/

IMO it doesn't make him any less aggressive by keeping him in another tank. I often have my male in the breeding tub long before I introduce the female. Besides you said he wouldn't flare - IMO you want to boost his self confidence as well. So putting him in the breeding tank would help.

If you're worried about aggressiveness, you can always remove him to another tank when he's the right size. Then a week later introduce them in the breeding tank.

I will set up the tank in the next few days and put him in, thanks for the advise. I am sure he will love the space :).

I was wondering whether anyone has any input on the filter I plan to use, It says that it works fry but I realize that its a different type than Iv seen in other spawning tanks. Would love some feedback ;)

Most of the time if you use an air pump in a filter it is fine, you just need a sponge filter (Which is in the picture) I have never seen a sponge filter that looks like that, but if it says sponge filter it is probably fine :) Good luck on your future spawn, and the male and female are both GORGEOUS :)

Haha :) All bettas deserved to be flattered, not just mine LOL. And i know my username is rather annoying....but all the greedy mods and old users took the good usernames! Grr! Haha just kidding, I love this website and everyone here. Everyone is so friendly and willing to help, and if there is an emergency people usually respond in 5-6 hours MAX. Usually around 1-2 hours. it may seem like a long time, but better late than never for your fishy friends!! :3
