How can I properly tell if a male is too small to breed?
Would anything go wrong if the female is larger?

The main issue with a smaller male is that he can't properly wrap the female hes trying to breed. It due-able sometimes but I wouldn't try with a significant size difference with the male being the smaller one.

Here’s more photos.
This was labeled as female at PetCo, and is three inches long.

I still can't really tell. Is there an egg spot? Either way she doesn't look like a good candidate for breeding.
Yep, there's a white spot underneath her.
I just created this thread because I was really unsure, and all these years I have been keeping bettas.

No, she's not going to be breeding.
This wonderful pair will be
