If you decide to breed your bettas, it is best to house a breeding pair in a separate tank and disconnect any filters or aeration devices that may destroy the bubble-nest. Once courting has begun, the male will build a bubble-nest among the leaves of the floating plants. Male and female will "intertwine" and the eggs will fall onto the anal fin of the male. He will disengage from the female and the eggs will begin to fall through the water.

Tank Maintenance
If you keep your Betta in a bowl, then change all of the water weekly.

First, prepare some water that is at the same temperature as the water your betta is already living in, add dechlorinator, and set it aside.
Next, remove your fish in some of the water from his bowl to a small container. Dump the water from his bowl out and clean the bowl with fresh water and a sponge or cloth. Do not use soap to clean your betta container--soap residue can kill your Betta!
Once you have cleaned the bowl, fill it with the water you prepared earlier, then return your fish to its bowl. It is not necessary to acclimate your Betta to the new water as long as the temperature is the same as what it was in previously, and it is coming from the same source you always use (that is, the pH and other properties of the water are about the same as what it is used to).
