They did not mean to offend. there are many young people on here, who either have to pay for stuff themselves or they are lucky to have parents who are willing to pay for them.

Don't be offended

Yeah as Sena said there are a lot of young people on here and they probably thought you were. Ii wouldn't take offense because it was a simple mistake. Which state is this fish or pet store in?

Sorry Myertace, My bad.
sadly my female betta died this morning. :(
I had her separted from the male.

I got her a few weeks ago and put her in with the male.
1st she started chasing the male and nipping a bit so i removed her to a new tank.
Then a few days later, put them back together.
But just yesterday, i found her with half or almost all of her tail bit off, assuming it was the male, so i removed her and then this morning,
she had passed away. :(
I'm very upset!

She could have taken a beating. When a betta is injured from another betta, what can happen is organ damage - leading to organ failure, and obviously death. It's very sad :(
I'm sorry you lost your girl!

Yes. I am very sad. Her belly was swollen a bit. I was assuming she was carrying eggs.......could that be possible?

She could have had eggs, as females always carry eggs - and one time every 2-3 weeks females get really fat with eggs. Or, she could have gotten an internal injury (getting rammed or head butted by the male) that caused her belly to swell.

Thats so sad. :(
I miss her already..........
I had her separated from the male at the time she left the world.
I thought maybe her tail injury could have been the cause. :(

One more thing.
Does the male HAVE to be bigger than the female in order for them to mate sucsessfully? I have frequently heard that he must be able to wrap his body around her.

Equal size or bigger. It IS possible for a strong small male to mate with a bigger female, but it is easier, and more successful to ave him equal size or bigger. I had to use my biggest males for my half giant female Madame
