    most fish do not like to breed in captivity, not sure the specifics of betas.

    I'd suggest starting with some research. The fish is a "Betta" not a beta (beta is letter in the greek alphabet and pronounced "bay-tuh" while Betta is pronounced "beh-tuh). The species name is Betta splendens.

    Bettas are harder to breed then you think they would be.
    I bred them for a few years,and durning that time, I spent/lost more money then I care to even admit [​IMG]

    These links might help:
    Betta Talk (breeding)
    Breeding Bettas


    With that being said, it is fun to do and you learn alot (if you have the time,money and patience for it,lol)

    well I breed bettas and you have to put the female and male close together in seprit bowls till the female is redy and she is nice and big with eggs and when they are done hatching you feed them live food like brine shrimp
