A: Yes and no. It can be done in many ways, but we tend not to suggest it as most people will not have success with it. In the past i have kept two male plakats in a community tank with no problems. Other factors such as how the fish was raised can also affect the outcome.

 

Q: Do Female bettas fight?

A: Yes. Female bettas like males can fight. While their fights are generally on a lesser scale, they can fight and cause damage to not only other females,but also to males. Usually when starting a female only tank, one female may be the aggressior and mini battles will occur. The reason for this is for the dominece. Or a pecking order. After a few days these mini battles should die down.

 

Q: Is it worth it?

A: Yes and No. For profit, No. For your own personal happiness, Depends on you. If you like it, Than Yes. Betta breeding will not pay your bills. Unless you are one of the lucky few that can make it work such as some breeders overseas. People should only go into the bussiness if they truely enjoy it. People like me with a passion for these animals will not care about the money and do it b/c we love to do it. There are many who break into the bussiness and expect to make it big, but my advise would be, follow your heart and if you love it, go for it.
