Its not chasing. Thats male betta fish showing aggression towards the female betta. You better keep them away I guess.

Gahlin thank you. I have them in a 3 gallon tank. We took her out and placed her in a cup thing in the water with him but seperate. But then he went in the Corning towred the bottom. Iv never seen him look like that, seemed depressed. Normal? If 3 gallon is to small then how big?

If you are wanting a pair of Betts to mate, it helps to let the male build his bubble nest first before turning the female loose from a smaller enclosure withing the main aquarium space. The male will display his fins and gill covers to the female and if she is receptive to mating, she will begin to curl her body. When the female is ready, let her out of the enclosure to mate. After the male embraces the female to release her eggs, he will take them into his mouth to fertilize them and deposit them into the bubble nest. .When this is done, it is usually best to separate them again, some females will eat the eggs.

If you are trying to breed them you should remove the marble rocks as the eggs will fall and he will not be able to reach them. I'm sure you realised this from trial and error. Also you must have live food they won't eat flakes. I keep micro worms which has been great.

If you want to breed fish, go to the pet store and buy 1 female guppy. Bring her home and within months you will have 30 fry.

Lorranne Depeche
Lorranne Depeche - 5 years ago
+Sarah Russo it IS animal abuse. he said a two gallon tank. he CLEARLY did not do research as he is asking a question on youtube. If you do not know what you are talking about, its best to dtay quiet. if he choses to irresponsibly breed petstore bettas, thats up to him. however it is extremely foolish of you to approve of that act.
Sarah Russo
Sarah Russo - 5 years ago
Its not animal abuse Lorrane. (-_-) And there ya go again with the "HUGE responsibility" thing. You're right, it is a big responsibility. But I'm sure that if the person reads up on how to do it and gets all the proper stuff, it can be done.
Lorranne Depeche
Lorranne Depeche - 5 years ago
+Sarah Russo Irresponsible breeding should not be encouraged. I get that you do not want to disapoint but i do believe i was polite when i informed them it was a bad idea.
Lorranne Depeche
Lorranne Depeche - 5 years ago
+Sarah Russo its straight up animal abuse. it SHOULD NOT be done. and it is a HUGE responsibility. What if they were just curious? the problem is when they have all the fry, and then realize they have no clue of what to do. its like just taking two dogs and breeding them in a one bedroom apartment with no knowledge on how to care for them. See what im saying? whats not "nice" is encouraging someone to make a bad decision that risks the lives of others.
Sarah Russo
Sarah Russo - 5 years ago
+Lorranne Depeche yeah but, it could still be done. It's not very nice to say "It won't work" or, "It's a HUGE responsibility". What if that person can do it? It's like you're bringin em down.
Lorranne Depeche
Lorranne Depeche - 5 years ago
+Sarah Russo the thing is, its risking the lives of not only 2 innocent betta fish, but up to 200 babies. :/
Sarah Russo
Sarah Russo - 5 years ago
I honestly believe it could work. I believe in you random stranger
Lorranne Depeche
Lorranne Depeche - 5 years ago
No sweetie, it wont work. Breeding bettas is a HUGE responsibility. Unless you are willing to spend over 500 dollars on supplies, grow your own live food for the fry, and have 50-150 separate heated tanks for the babies, do not do it. Please do not breed bettas if you have no idea what you are getting yourself into. Petstore bettas should never be bred anyway. Also a 2 gallon tank/bowl is too small for one betta. 2.5 but preferably 5 gallons is minimum. 5 gallons will allow you to cycle the tank to ensure your new pets health. Also don't forget a heater and filter :) Good luck with your new Family member. ♡

Katie Lyons you can put females with males first you got to introduce each other which mean put there tank close together for a day or 2 and they will start to like each other and the when the male makes a bubble best he is ready to mate
THE HOLY BUTTFUNGUS
THE HOLY BUTTFUNGUS - 4 years ago
you could actually do this but i recomend a 10-15 gallon and provide lots of coverage so they can set up territories its also better if you know the bettas personality if it calm,agressive,or just territorial it might help if they have had past tank mates so they are more calm and used to it.

Yep that is the right way to do it. This tank is way too small for two fish to live let alone female and male betta.. the male was nipping and they are gonna be too stressed out in such a tight space without many plants.

I agree, I did this years ago and the male almost killed her, you can keep female's together but not males and not males with female, I'm thinking about getting one male but I'd like to get two females, haven't decided yet. I'm getting them tomorrow I'll decided then.

g00dlife - 5 years ago
+Katie Lyons I just introduced a female and male and they do nothing like this. They are in a 55 gallon heavily planted tank and at first displayed to each other and now just hang out a few inches from each other all the time. No stressing , just hang at the top and are interested in each other. One is a male moon tail and the female is a vale tail . They seem pretty calm
Katie Lyons

It's actually me showing how frustrated I am with dumb people like the person who put a male and female together thinking they would get along.

My bettas were ready... My female betta has vertical stripes... And my male has finished making his bubble nest.. I fed them 4 times a day for 2weeks.. When I put the female betta into the tank.. They were fine.. The male is chasing the female and may already have torn fins.. But a few hours later when I checked.. The female betta was weak and won't swim.. She's just at the bottom part.. She doesn't move at all.. 2 days later and the female almost gonna die.. So I took her out.. She lost one of her fins..(the one the used for swimming) and her other fins was torn.. And her body was kinda bruised... Pls. tell me what I did wrong..

Destini Duckett

+Rhucille Pionan For a male and a female betta together you need a large tank with plenty of hiding space, because no matter what the male WILL get aggressive and territorial. Sometimes these things just happen, but that's why its so important to always keep an eye on your fish. However, once you realized he was chasing her, and ESPECIALLY once you noticed her acting odd, you should have removed the female betta. Your 'few hours later' should have been the go-to to remove the female. There is no way they could have mated with her under such extreme stress. Next time, observe a lot closer, and try to get a male betta with a better temperament. Also, I recommend at LEAST a ten gallon tank and a lot of hiding plants and rocks.

Also having a big tank can tire out a small beta fish. If you want to have a big tank u will not see it as much because it will hide. So I think that your doing a fine job and can't believe how mean these ppl ARE HERE.

Dominique Freeman
Dominique Freeman - 5 years ago
Ok also rule of thumb just for those who say that they need huge tanks to thrive...For every inch of a beta is a gallon of water. so not a inch does not need five gallons tank. Also this male wasn't attacking the female he was flaring something they do to get the female to like THEM. Kinda like dancing....or how a penguin gives nicest pebble. Just to let you know also I asked a breeder if you want to mate they will flare up and this size tank for that is perfect. just FYI
Mae Muffin

skadi

+Dominique Freeman The gallon per inch myth has been disproven time and again. Look at a tiger oscar for instance. A ten inch fish does not belong in a ten gallon tank, just as a two inch betta doesn't belong in a bowl. It's like living in a closet for your whole life because the square area of the space is numerically equal to your height.
This tank looks a bit too small for one happy betta, let alone two. Two shouldn't even be living together period, since in nature they get vast swaths of territory to themselves. Female only sororities can work, but those take at least 30 gallon tanks and a lot of trial and error to get working, and even then it's not suggested.
And just because somebody breeds the fish doesn't mean they're experts. Look at how Walmart and Petsmart treat the fish they breed.

+Dominique Freeman people live 23 hours a day for 20 years in a 10 by 5 foot room... doesnt mean its ideal or they are happy...  a fish tank is a prison! end of story.. now that we got that out of the way rather you are a human or a fish if you are stuck in a prison and cant leave you want the most space possible.. my betta in a cup got happy in a 2.5 gallon happier in a 5 gallon then supper happy in a 20gallon.. put him back in the 2.5 he was sader then he was in the cup, reason why is he got use 20 20gallons... back when he was 1st in the 2,5 he was happy cause he was use to a cup!    so yes theres the 1 ich gallon rule that mostly aplys so you can keep the water in check but if you really want a happy thriving fish bigger will always be better

they don't need a huge tank... I have had experienced this before and they for some reason lived much longer in a tank of this size and I have many places for them to hide. I just bought this thing that looks like a jelly fish off eBay for like under a buck that floats at top with a bubble of air and my last red beautiful half moon beta was in it most of the time unless I fed him. My husband was amazed at how much he loved that thing.

+Dominique Freeman Hi! It's actually reccomended a minimum of 5 gallons of water per one betta fish (I'd reccomend 2-3 for those who can't afford larger tanks). Often-time, people mistake a betta's ability to live in small spaces as a preference- it's not. Maybe the reason larger tanks didn't work for you is because of the water quality? They're meant to live 2 to four years..I'm not saying they can't survive in small tanks, but a betta would be a lot happier in larger bodies of water, trust me.
Dominique Freeman
Dominique Freeman - 5 years ago
Do they have to be the same kinds of beta? like I have a half moon beta female does it have to be a half moon male as well?
Andre Tey
Andre Tey - 5 years ago
+Dominique Freeman no they do not have to be the same type,but the best is to breed it to the same type so the offspring will have the same tailtype as shorttail are dominant over long tails

your female is so pretty! mine looks more like a sunset. my friend who works with fish suggested that if i wanted them to mate, i would have to get multiple females so that the aggression is not concentrated on just one female

plants never hurt. just my recommendation. if you break up line of sight enough or distract them into exploring it'll really tone down the aggression.

if your tank is larger than 20 ish gallons and HEAVILY planted with plenty of hiding places you'll be fine.

nyyanks937
nyyanks937 - 5 years ago
+Olivia Vandyke It would probably survive in a .5 gallon, but I would recommend at least 1 or 2 gallon. Plus it depends on its size. Some bettas are bigger than others. I used to have a small one is a .5 gallon, but now I have a bigger one in a 2 gallon.
Alyssa Johnson

you dumb bitch. you aren't supposed to put them in that small thank to where the female can't hide. And chasing eachother causes them both stress
Dominique Freeman
Dominique Freeman - 5 years ago
Seriously???? Who are you to call anyone a stupid bitch? Also I have had a male beta and female beta both of different types in this size tank and after he realized it wasn't a male they got along fine actually they lived over two yrs together and had plenty of babies. No fish or any animals come in and don't check out the other and if this fish wants to hide she has that cup in still and can take it out at any time. If you call someone names it seems like your the bitch.

Dominique Freeman

males and makes aren't supposed to be in the same tanks together. Females and males are... At first all males do this because they font understand why or what it is and when they do they are fine. I had two-year life span with my female n male. It helps to do research

I just put my male betta in with my female beta and they are ignoring each other. Been 20 minutes and the male puffed his gills out but the female wants nothing to do with him and i think he knows that. So they are away from each other. How long should i wait til either mating or fighting happens?

+Dominique Freeman they shouldn't be put together at all, unless you're breeding them purposely (which is a lot of work!) or you want your female to die. or the male. some of my females have beat the absolute shit out of my males, they find chasing and eating those big tails is a fun game and it traumatizes the males.

dont put goldfish in with tropical fish, goldfish are cold water fish and obviously bettas and whatever else is in there are probably tropical. you'll shorten the lifespan of either the goldfish or the tropical by putting them in water thats not meant for them

It is much better if you get a separater for the middle. I remember mine did this at first because I DIDN'T put them in at the same time he decided it was his place not hers so I put a separater in the middle and they got use to each other and he realized she was a female and they were fine for two years together and had a few babies. But because of age they died. well the male first the female lasted for another yr

if you can figure out how to put a divider in so they can not see each other or get to each other that could work, or if you just got the female I would give her back to the store since you don't have the space right now, not trying to be mean just saying
