Exclamation Help with betta breeding!

Hi everyone.
I am looking to begini breeding my Bettas. They've lived with eachother for some time and i think it's about time they start......you know......reproducing.
Anyways, I know nothing about doing it and I have heard it all neds to be very specific. I also heard that this website has very experienced people who know alot. So i'm asking for every little detail regarding breeding beacuse i wouldnt want anything to go wrong.
Thanks in advance! :)

The best way to start and learn is to read the stickys at the beginning of "Breeding Betta Fish" topic.

If they've been living together they've probably already bred several times.

From what I've seen.
Fish that live together won't breed or take longer time to breed.

While spawning this species can be rewarding and enjoyable-it is really important to do lots of research first before you take on this job and it is a job of sorts....
Spawning and rearing Betta fry is not as simple as adding two fish in a tank......several important steps that you need to make and be ready for since spawning this species can vary from spawn to spawn even with the same breeding pair.....

There are lot of experienced breeders on this forum and we are all willing to help, however, we expect you to do your homework too-lots of different ways to successfully complete this task-but until we know what you know it will be hard for us to help/advise.

Lot of different ways to spawn this species and rear fry-what we need from you so that we can better help you: as detailed as possible

What spawning method you plan to use
What supplies you have on hand
What supplies you need to get
Food you have or plan to use for both conditioning the breeders and for the fry
What do you plan to do with the fry
What are your culling plans
Your goals

I don't want to discourage you-but I also want to be sure you are ready to take on this task...its a lot of work and start up cost can get rather expensive...we want you to be successful in your adventure and being properly prepared with a good knowledge base is the first step.....

Read all the sticky information on this site and read through some of the many spawn logs too and then ask questions on what you don't understand.....
