this may sound silly but to breed a betta does the female betta need to be sort of the same color as the male?

You mix the colors to get new colors....That is how there are so many color variations.

Is it strange that my female has nipped off most of my male bettas fins? I am trying to breed them but it doesn't seem like it's working, at first they did clamp together and swim in sort of a circle like they do but since than the bubble nest has been depleted and they have just been fighting. Should i try a different male or different female or something?

Try separating them but where they can see each other and see what happens.

is 2 females to one male give it more help or just hinder the process?

There is a little more to breeding Bettas than putting them in the same tank......I just looked on the Internet and there are many articles on breeding them......I have never tried to breed them so I can't give you good answers.
