same danios work well with bettas, however a 2.5 gallon is too small for a betta and other fish. As for breeding, its a long process. A friend of mine does it sometimes cuz his fraternity gives bettas away during big-little week. Anyway, he used 3 tanks, 2 2.5 gallon tanks and a 10 gallon tank. He puts the male on one 2.5 and the female in 1 2.5. He waits until the male builds a bubblenest. Then he moves the two tanks together for 2 weeks until the male and female dont seem too aggressive or shy, if they are still agressive after 2 weeks he seperates them and trys again in a week. ANyway, once they are comfortable, he moves the male to the 10 gallon, waits for the bubble nest, and then introduces the female. Note the 10 gallon is next to the females 2.5 so the two bettas still see eachother. After theres a bubble nest he puts the female into the 10 gallon and it usually works.
He also removes the female one the eggs are laid.
