    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.

    Would you say this is a male or female betta?

    Here’s more photos.
    This was labeled as female at PetCo, and is three inches long. 3B888FA3-C274-41EB-8967-CF2F86E15F38.jpeg64317B25-B70D-4DA8-9E95-9D5A380A5D38.jpeg8B58CA15-A2FC-428B-B417-B5D150635221.jpeg

    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 :)
