Aquarium
What does the whole turning grayish mean? I thought it was the bucket so I used a 15 gallon aquarium and he just started flaring and got gray again. DOes it mean he's not ready? I read that it's best to breed early, around 4-7 months old.

Fish are friends, not food

He's stressed and not completely conditioned you could try frozen brine shrimp and blood worms mosquito larvae work amazingly well too

Many don't breed before 6-9 month's and up to 18 months it's best to take into account your individual fish

5 giant goldfish, 23 bettas, a dozen guppies, 20 bronze/albino corys and a random assortment of a few other community fish/ invertebrates.
1 adorable little frog, 5 cats, 3 dogs and a wonderful toddler aged daughter

Family fur-balls and fins <3

Yes I agreed :) I didn't have luck with my fish at 4 months, I wait till about 6. And yes, definitely get frozen blood worms. I condition my pairs with frozen blood worms, frozen brine shrimp and NLS pellets. I feed them 2-3 times a day for at least two weeks ( if it's a new fish, 3-4).
Don't worry! Some fish just do not spawn the first few times. It happened to me with a DTPK male. When he isidnspawn it was only 6 fry to I dumped them and he is now just a pet lol
