New Betta..pics

I purchased a blue male betta like a month ago, i havent had one in maybe half a year, he's living in my twenty gallon..here are some pics along with my two female bettas, a brown and red one...they mostly just keep to themselves, there are no bubble nests and plenty of hiding spaces

Nice bettas!!

I wouldn't keep males and females together, though. They might live together for a year and then the male might suddenly freak out and kill the girls...or vice versa. I've heard horror stories like that tons of times =/. And they always say the same thing "But they've been living together for so long!" or "But they were so peaceful" or "I had plenty of hiding spots...".

You just have to remember that males in the wild and very solitary.

thank you,
yeah, i have been giving the male betta some serious thought, i wonder though, how in the world do they even get these males to breed with them being so aggressive toward the females?

Breeding bettas is actually rather tricky because of that. No matter what the female will almost always get at least a little beaten up.

Breeding a male to a female generally involves having the male in the breeding tank and a female in a container inside the tank. If the male is interested he'll build a bubblenest and when the female is ready to breed she'll show vertical breeding stripes and her oviposter will be visible. Then the female is let out and hopefully they mate. Sometimes it takes a few times and regardless of if they mate or not the female can't be left in there for too long. See, if she doesn't want to mate and the male does then he might end up killing her. And if they do mate then the male will chase her away afterwards...but in a confined aquarium the female can't really escape and the male can hurt her. Even if neither fish wants to mate the male will see her as a threat to his territory =/. So, you can see why keeping mixed genders isn't recommended .
