What do you mean? Are they egg eaters, too aggressive, or what? Could you be more specific, then perhaps we (all members) could figure out a way to out wit them...
For some reason nowadays some bettas are hard to spawn and their fry will most probably be hard to spawn as well. So it doesn't matter where you got them from, as long as they have settled in, they should be the same.
IME even the laziest ones can be spawned. They might not tend to the eggs, but if the eggs were fertilized and healthy, they will hatch and you will have fry.
The ones I have problems with are the psychotic egg eaters - specially if they don't spare any for artificial hatching. And then there's the ones that have health issues - I don't understand why they are less energetic when they go into breeding thus the eggs weren't fertilized. Other than those, I have always been able to spawn them.
