which male, and a question

since i am getting ready to spawn again (not any time soon) i still need a heater, snail, (live) plants, filter, and food. which male should i spawn, am getting a HM female from AB.
male #1, OHM red marble male, Puddles. active, healthy, and a great bubble nester, bad side; he is pretty aggresive:

male #2, HMPK multi-color (?) male, active, healthy, not much into nesting, bad side; he has one big ear, the other side isn't fully a big ear:


question: when there big enough, could i put sparta with them? if i could, would it help him/her grow? thanks

Male 2. Doesn't breeding rose tails or feather fin bettas often result in negative effects, and deformities

Honestly I can't tell you since their faults are not worth breeding to me :/

WHAT!?!? all this time i thought he was an over halfmoon, NOOOOOOOO
the only other males i have is a VT and a CT, am totally not breeding VT though.
am going to either stick with my HMPK, CT, or getting another betta ( i have no space for another)

also i messed up the question (lol) i mean "when the fry are big enough, could i put sparta, my stunted fry, with them? if i can will it help him/her grow?"

If you have no space for another adult... why are you going to breed?

am not going to keep all of them (fry), well i have containers, but am not putting them (pairs) in that. and i never said it is going to be in a week or so, it is going to take me awhile, as i meant to say i have no space for another, at the moment. by 3 or longer months i could probably get my breeding and all ready.
sorry for misleading, basically i cannot spawn at the moment. i was just checking which male would be better. am still getting things together.

My exact thoughts mrvampire. Grow out tanks should be a minimum of 20 gallons, and when taking into consideration, you could end up with lots of males which means that you could have 50-70 little cups to hold them in. How would you not have enough space for another male if you could comfortably enter a breeding situation

EDIT. just saw your new post. Sorry

Well in three months they might start getting too old. Best just to buy a pair in three months with reputable genetics and some standing in the IBC.

i never want to join the IBC (reasons):
.i don't want to pay membership stuffy
.am only 14
.nothing is EVER in IL
.and i don't think i got what it takes for being in the largest international betta stuff

and also, not all males would need to be seperated at one time. and someone has there spawn together for like 4 months or something. and i yes am still pulling things together.
