If you feel confused, you can consulting with any pet shop or pet store Betta fish near you.
It's not easy to breed Betta fish, firstly, place them in the same tank only when the breeding is imminent. You can put the male first and put the female in other tank nearly. Both of the tank should be transparent and closely. The female will ready for mating when she shows vertical stripes on her body and may begin to shed eggs. The male will ready when he build bubble nest. After about 24 hours and both of them ready, you can house male and female together. You should provide more plenty places for the female.
When the fish are mating, the male will lead the female over to the bubble nest and start the act of fertilization. The male will wraps his body around the female and hold that position for a time -it looks like a "hug"-, squeezing the eggs out of her body. After that, the male will begin to herd the eggs toward the bubble nest. After this process, the female should be separated with the male. The male will keep the eggs until the eggs hatch and the fry are ready to live on their own.
Bettas are cannibal, the male will eat all the eggs and fry, so, most of Betta fish breeders suggest not feeding the male in this process. This will be about three days after hatching, until the fry can swimming. You will need to remove the male immediately before he eat the fry. As soon as you remove the male, feed the fry a small portion of microworms. What do baby fish eat? Use some living foods such as: Infusoria (first week), microworms (3-40 days) and baby brine shrimp.
Before choosing the best Betta fish tanks, you should understanding about Betta fish behavior. This fish is best housed in solitary environment due to its aggressive nature when confronted with other fish. The females can thrive in a large tank with a couple of other females, but the male not.
Betta need space to thrive, if you choose a larger tank your Betta will be healthier. One gallon of water is the absolute minimum tank size your Betta needs for survival, but tanks that small get dirty way too fast. You still need to do full weekly water changes with a tank under 5 gallons. If you insist on a tank smaller than 5 gallons make sure you choose one with a good filtration system.
