Ok Thank you betta lover 1507 for all your help so far. I am brand new to all of this so bare with me. Here are a few blurs of my couple. (Sorry they don't like to pose :P) I have a 10 gallon set up right now that has been cycling for about 3 days. Should i divide this and put both bettas in it?

Couple? ... do you plan to breed these? The female looks too young.

Also sorry about the user I mentioned in the beginning. That was supposed to be Betta Lover2033. I don't know how to edit my thread. :/

Apparently from other threads ive read breeders think both male and female should be older than 3 months before breeding.

Aweh that tiny female is adorable :D
Good thing you're waiting, and doing your research :D
I recommend reading some of the spawn logs on here, for an idea of what it's like.
And, I'd divide the 10gal and put them both in there.

Awesome. Is there a particular plant I should buy for them? Also I purchased the female from a petstore so I have no idea how old she is. Any suggestions???

She's so small, I'd probably just wait a full 3 months to be sure, it should give her time to grow.

Java ferns, anubias, moss balls are good starter plants to get.
