BlueVTMalexBluePKFemale

I have a divider in a 20 gal. tank with my male on one side and my female on the other. He has a HUGE bubble nest, she is plump with eggs and has the vertical lines, but whenever I put them together, she just stays to one side. He stays under the nest and tries to lure her over, but she just stays where she is. Should I get some more live plants? Please I need help, but please be gentle because this is my first time with them

The spawning is complete. She is back in her tank and he is busy protecting the eggs

Hey I was just wondering because my friend didn't condition her female or male betta and now she is worried if the eggs will hatch. They are a yellow-orange-whiteish color. The male is still protecting the nest and picking up any eggs that drop, but are the infertile? Both of our bettas embraced at the same time, but we don't know if they will hatch together

Her male just completely moved the eggs from one side to the other, but is never leaving them unless he is eating or getting a breath

How long has it been? I would suspect that if it has been more than three days they are infertile. Please make sure your friend properly conditions them before they are put together. If you have petstore bettas that are not breeding, they are too old.

She bred her's last night as well. The male now hates us even trying to get a picture of them... And he's one of her less-aggressive males!! Apparently we were wrong.... We bred them at the same time so that we could do the future generations together
