I have a beautiful green and pink marble monkey face Beta that has finally started making bubble nests. His tank is beside my female molly tank and he has been trying to entice the girls over. He built his bubble nest close to his viewing window into the girls tank and he has been watching them and dancing for them. He then swims to the bubble next and waves his fins while watching the female molly. He keeps swimming to the glass and putting on a show and then swims back to the nest and waits. LOL I am thinking of getting a female and trying to breed him. I have a well cycled 5 gallon tank that only has snails and plants right now. I was thinking of making it a shrimp tank but never could decide on what shrimp to get. Now I am thinking it would make a nice home for a female Beta. My male has a 10 gallon all to himself. Would the 5 gallon be enough for a girl? I posted a link to a photo of the male. I was thinking a pink female if I can find one. How do I decide on a color? I have a local pet store that buys or trades for all of my extra mollies and snails. They are interested in me breeding guppies and Betas for them. Any advice on female color and breeding would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry the photos are not better.
