    Hi Bettadew! 1) prefer male larger than female. Helps get a good wrap. 2) I keep them next to each other for a week with a card in between and let them flare and show off to each other for an hour every day. Gets them in breed mode. Once male has a nest and female is excited to get in or has v stripes its time to roll. 3) I find 3-5 gallon platic containers work well. 80f with a few live plants and an IAL leaf works well for me water must be calm so sponge filter on low with top protruding from water. 4) Live plants are great. They help keep water params good and will provide some food for fry after they hatch via micro organisms.

    Hello There! Sorry I've been MIA for a while, busy schedule, but now I'm planing on restarting with my delightful hobby :) I have a couple of questions for you. I'm planning on starting to breed bettas, and I was just wondering, can you give me some tips on the crossing process? Tips like:
    1- Female and male betta sizes
    2- How long to keep them "seeing" each other and then placing the female together with the male
    3- How big of a tank should I cross them in?
    4- Are Bettas healthier with live plants or just fake plants?

    I'm sorry, I know it's a lot of questions but I was hoping you could help me to start the breeding process. I'm just trying out for fun :) At the moment I only have one Betta in hand, but I'm going to buy a male and a female from petco and try it out from there. DO you have any tips for me?

    Thank you so much for your time,
    Regards,

    BettaDew :)
