Last time I spawned I used the cup one of my petCo Bettas came in. Floated that in the tank.

This morning I heard a small splash. Mr marbles (the male i am conditioning) jumped the divider and was in with the other male. I caught them before anything happen. I fixed that no way he will do that again. No one got hurt. The other male was scared of him. I filled the tank too high after the water change yesterday. Oops. The dividers are painted black but they can still peak at each other threw the holes.

He is a feisty fish. This should be fun.

Oh, I wish you could record their spawning. I bet it will be a spicy courtship.

Yes his name is Mr. Marbles it suits him he is cool.

As video I think I will try. There will be lots of photos in time no worry. It's the slow season at work so I will have more time for the bettas haha.

Might want to watch out for the excessive branching.

Yeah the standard says 4 or more branching without becoming too excessive. What is too excessive wish they show a photo of that.

My male averages 5 to 6 main rays but those rays split too at the tips. The female averages 4 to 5 main rays. yeah I will have to watch for that.

I set up the breeding tank with floating plants and one large IA Leaf. The male is in there checking it out.

Day one. Around 8:30am today I put the female in a clear cup so the male could see her and she could see him. I hope he puts her in the mood so she starts producing my eggs. She is a little girl. The male already has a small bubble nest he made last night on his own.


Here is a video I took its kind of long. I lose track of time when I watch betta fish.
http://youtu.be/JvHO5S1tqeU

She is being more submissive then my other female was. My blue big ear female flared back at the male. This little girl seems to be already more submissive I am kind of surprised.

Fingers crossed everything goes well. Tomorrow I hope I can let her go in the tank. Only time will tell.
