Once the fish are used to being around each other, they can be set free. The same thing can be done by putting the female in a chamber inside the males' tanks.

Having Betta fish babies
Place the female in the same tank as the male once they are both aware of each other and seem ready to spawn. There can be some aggressive moves, like nipping each other's fins. If it gets dangerous for either the male or the female, take the female out and let the fish rest for a few days. Put her in the tank next to it that has a glass wall and start the process over again. Wait for signs that she is ready. When both of them are ready to have babies, they will "embrace," and she will lay eggs under the bubble nest. He will put them together and start taking care of the eggs. Take the female out of the tank and put her back in her own tank.
The Basics of How to Raise Bettas at Home
First, make sure your Betta fish are at least 5 months old and have been living in their tanks for a while. Don't forget that taking good care of your Betta fish can save you a lot of trouble. You have to put the male in one tank and the female in another tank close by so that they can get used to each other before you bring them together to mate. When your male Betta fish is ready to mate, he will make a bubble nest at the top of his tank. This is where he will lay the eggs. The female can also show signs by getting stripes of different colors.
When you put the male and female together, the female will lay her eggs. She can lay hundreds of eggs, and some females have been known to lay close to a thousand eggs. When she is done, she will hide, and the male will take over and care for the young. At this time, the male might fight the female, so it's best to get her out of the way.
