 Hi,
 
 I  bought  a  
 1.  female  Betta  big  size  name  her  as  A
 2.  2  female  Bettas  5  months  old  (small  size)  name  them  as  B
 
 I  just  tried  to  keep  A  Betta  with  Male  (bigger)  -  both  felt  uncomfortable  zone  ans  started  to  chase  each  other  and  i  kept  them  both  in  different  tank.
 
 Now  I  just  kept  both  B  Betta  to  a  different  Male  tank:  happy  to  say  that  all  are  doing  well
 
 Like  to  know  what  is  the  breeding  size,  I  mean  female  size  should  be  lesser  than  the  male?

 3)  size

 can't  force  them.  But  if  all  three  points  are  right  then..  you  have  a  chance  by  conditioning  them  with  good  water,  perfect  temperature,   and  yummy  food.
 I  mean  conditioning  them.  Smile

 Maybe  if  the  male  is  so  horny  he  can  persuade  the  female.   It  will  take  days  to  condition  them,  right  deepakg.

 Yeah..  Usually  it  takes  a  week  to  condition.  If  the  circumstances  are  right.

 This  is  what  I  did  after  you  have  a  male  and  a  female  :
 
 1)  First  step  is  to  ensure  that  the  female  is  loaded.  Generally  you  should  notice  the  ovipositor  coming  out  a  bit  and  a  extra  full  looking  tummy  in  the  female.
 
 2)  Keep  the  male  and  the  female  in  normal/cold  and  uncoditioned  water  and  feed  them  dry  food  like  tetrabits/hikari  et  al
 
 3)  after  3  days,  take  the  breeding  tank,  add  IAL  and  a  few  hardy  plants  and  mosses,  add  a  heater  and  add  the  male  and  the  female  in  a  glass  jar/glass  divider  in  the  same  tank.  And  after  adding  them  in  the  same  tank,  feed  them  only  live  food  (grindals,  whiteworms  etc)
 
 With  the  sudden  change  in  conditions  and  food,  they  seem  to  get  ready  to  spawn  almost  instantly  within  a  days  time  :)
 
 Hope  this  helps!

 @garothman  :  If  the  female  betta  is  not  loaded,  then  where  will  the  eggs  come  from?  how  will  they  spawn??   Smile  
 The  result  of  keeping  a  non  loaded  female  with  a  male  for  a  long  time  can  be  disastrous..  avoid  doing  that..  any  healthy/mature  female  betta  will  be  loaded  in  20  days  easily..
 Deepakg,  pls  correct  me  if  i  am  wrong  on  this..
