Yes you can it's completely fine just make sure first he makes a nest for her so place her some where she can see him just not be with him.
When he's made a nest let them be together but watch carefully because when it's done the mom it's the baby eggs so take her out and then the dad...
Hi I've become very interested in betta breeding so I would like to know the process.
Is it true they fight first then he builds the nest then he squeezes her a few times and finally she lays the eggs and he takes care of them? Please help me I would love to breed Bettas but also in a safe way
