I put my pre-conditioned backup pair into the cleaned-out tank after the 'incident' happened, and then Pearl (my female) somehow got through the divider and then she and Kordon (the male) embraced. I'm so exited, but he isn't putting the eggs into the nest (Though I've heard that he won't do that until it is all over)

Good job though! The only way we can learn is from trail and error

He moved the nest like my previous male to the part that is dense with plants. Now he is diligently guarding the eggs

Males may move things around to a place more to their liking.

Thank you. He, too, killed the fry. I was a mess until I found out what I was doing wrong. The filter was too strong and had somehow disturbed him.

Anywhooo.... I haven't yet figured out (Which makes me feel stupid) how to start a new thread. I tried Kordon and Pearl again and this time it worked! But then, once they were all free-swimmers, bacteria attacked them. So know I have 8-9 6 week old baby Bettas that look like 3/4 week old babies =( I think they are like that because I had to keep a towel wrapped around the tank because the heater stopped working and it was cold inside the house. I think that paused the growth. But know some are growing slowly and their colors are maturing
