There are many different reasons. if you are trying to breed them he is nipping her to get her attention. He might not like her. If you are not trying to breed them you should consider separating them, because if they breed the male will kill her as soon as she has the eggs. she also might kill him if he nipps her too much. Your male is most likely to be nipping because he wants to breed with her.

Male Bettas can live with female Betta fish except when they have laid eggs. Male Betta fish should not be placed in the same aquarium as another male Betta.

The male betta always has longer fins. It is more colorful and prettier. The female betta is not so pretty with dull fins.

From a female Betta. Then the male Betta fertilizes them when they breed together.

The male fish will take care of the young, once the female lays the eggs then remove the female from the tank or the male betta will injure or kill her. Can a male betta fish get pregnant ? The answer is no.

Under normal circumstances the female Betta looks and is smaller than the male in both body and finage.

No because if a male betta is not atracked to the female they will try to reserve there territory

Your betta fish is a female if she has smaller fins than an average male.

If they are not too old and the female is ready, then they will mate.

The female Betta does not fight a male, she simply gets bashed until she dies. A male Betta MUST NOT be kept with any other Bettas male or female.
