If they are not too old and the female is ready, then they will mate.
To get her to mate.
about an hour then take the female out
The male will either mate with the female or kill her if she is not ready to mate. Male Betta splendens will not live peacefully with any other fish of the same species. So the answer is no.
Put more then one female with a male
Yes all bettas can mate with other bettas. " regular betta fish" there are different types and they can all breed together.
Either he is flaring to show off to the female, or he doesn't see the female as a good mate and is trying to chase her away.
Because the female will usually try to eat the eggs. He will fight to protect them from anything, even his mate.
They are entirely different species and therefore can not mate with one another.
I can assure you the Betta does not think of you as a mate. They are not stupid and do know a female of their own species. Your Betta has simply reached sexual maturity and is building his display home in the hope that if a lady Betta comes along he can convince her to make fertile eggs with him under it.
Female Bettas if you want them to mate get more then one female betta get 2 to 3
No not naturally platies are livebearers and bettas lay eggs
Well Betta breeding is tricky, some betta keepers are "ok" but others are NOT, your betta keeper must have a seperater to separate the male from the female. You must do this so the male can get use to the look of the female.. After 1-2 days put the female in with the male.. And watch them, if they fight then you will have to separate them again.
A female fish is ready to mate when there is a white opening near her vent. Betta fish even have stripes on their stomachs to indicate that they are ready to mate.
A girl Betta is dull and not as pretty as the male. But, a boy Betta is colorful and pretty to attract the female mate.
Its eather because there just playing or she doesnt want to mate with the boy or there fighting thats all i can give you for info
It means they are getting ready to MATE
Yes they do sometimes they do want to mate with each other so they have sex and then if you see the female having a bump in the belly that means it is pregnant or it's sick and then she will release her babies in a couple of months.
When a Betta is eager to mate and ready he will often build a bubble nest.
It is a male and it is trying to attract a female to mate with. The Bubbles is a bubble nest.
yes, he can wait apx 16 days after first breeding
Is the tank too small? It should be about 10 gallons. Is the male betta worn out or doesn't even move laying on the bottom of the tank? That's might be why. you can visit: www.bettatalk.com .
no, because even though the two are both fish, they are different types. its like a housecat can't mate with a lion
Yes they can because they are still bettas. If they mate it would become a delta crown tail bettas.
