hi everyone.
i need everybody's expert advice on bettas and how to tell when a female betta is pregnant.
my webcam pictures sucks but if you look closely, my female betta stomach area is white and plump. is this normal or not?
and recently she made her own bubble nest...is this a sign or something?
what are some signs of a pregnant betta fish?
what should i do if i want to breed my betta? (i have male bettas too)
please help me and my betta, Violet :)

thanks everyone!
so i tried putting my two (female & male) tanks together
and my female betta went bizzzzzerk so i had to seperate them
i know i should keep on trying
but if a pregnant female has no male..
will the eggs in her stomach kill her if she doesnt release it?

he was pretty calm and normal while the female was flaring and swimming crazy
