My betta won't breed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Question:
My female betta will not breed. she was deffinetly ready! when she started releaseing eggs i put her in with the male. she would not let the male come near her at all. And she about ready to realse Eggs (Posibly in 2 weeks) again!
PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Answer:
We had the same trouble when we tried to experiment with this. Plus the males would make their nests in their own boel, but when put together, they suddenly went stupid. LOL! We tried Majesty with five different males and nothing ever happened. All that money we spent on heaters and thermostats and a new tank and everything was wasted!
Good luck, though. Have you been to bettatalk? very detailed step by step instructions there.


Answer:
Well maybe i will try my albino female betta. sometime next month she will be ready.


Answer:
How many egges to do bettas have? Where do you give them, or sell them? Like, don't pet-stores have enough? Or are you keeping them? Lol, sorry for all the questions, this just seems like a really weird idea is all. No offense or anything...


Answer:
A Betta fish can release as many as 500 eggs. Some of those won't get fertilize. Some fertilized won't develop. Some will die as fry. Some will be eaten by daddy (who raises them, btw). So, all in all, you'd be lucky to end up with 50 fish in the end- which is still a lot. It's a fascinating thing- we tried it once, but apparently our female was too aggressive (or frigid! LOL!) and we had been saving glass jars for weeks and weeks in preperation of seperating them out when they were old enough. I'm sort of glad it didn't work out- cause that's a lot of fish! I regret the money we spent on the tank and the heater andthermometer and all that stuff in preperation, but still don't know where I'd put 50 fish!


Answer:
Actully u can take the male out when u take the female out and raise them artificially!!


Answer:
Who puts them back in the nest when they fall out?


Answer:
You can take the male out when the fry are free swimming, not before or they will have lower chances of survival. Like jennawing mentions, the father takes care of the babies and puts them back in the nest when they fall out.
Breeding bettas is a delicate process, and fish can be moody too. Some are great parents and some just are not. If the female is too aggressive and won't let the male near, she might not be ready or she might not like the male. They have their preferences too and they can't be forced to mate when they do not want to. Remember, they are fighting fish and both male and female can get very violent with each other if they are not in the mood.


Answer:
That's all really cool! I think that'd be awesome to do, but I definitely wouldn't do it. I don't think there's any betta breeders around here, lol, and I doubt that pet store fishies should be used. When they're hatched, how do you advertise to get rid of them? Lik, a paper or something like flyers? Lol, sorry for all the quetsions (again), but this is pretty interesting.


Answer:
u lower the water down to a centametter!!! that is how u raise them artifically!!
