Both my boys each got a betta fish and were told that both fish were male. We kept both in seperate tanks because of this. I now notice that one of the fish is a female and is pregnant. The male began bubble nesting. Here is the thing.....I don't want a lot of fish. My question is if I leave them seperated what will happen to her full of eggs. Do I have to let them spawn? I hope not. I tried and he kept ripping her fins off and eating them and she kept biting his sides. I just want to make sure this wont hurt her if i leave them as they are. Please any help would be great. I have googled anything I can get my hands on and even the local fish stores dont know what to do.
