So they decided not to cooperate right now, out for a week of reconditioning and then we'll try it again. Though she has build one heck of a bubble nest now that he has been removed lol

She's staying where she is for now so that I can specifically condition her. And next time I am trying a smaller tank. I usually use a 10g but I didn't have one available so I had them in a 15. It seems like there is too much space for her to get away from him if that makes sense. She gets to the other side of the tank and he looses interest. The 10g seem to work better for me. I just had to get the growout ready for the copper babies.

I think it all depends on the pair... I have a 20g long and they still got it right.. the first female didnt co-operate at all though... How far along are your other spawns?

The copper spawn is 6 weeks, and the other is one and a half weeks. They are both doing well.

Sigh, so I now think that even though I got "Jewel" from a tank of other female crowntails, she is in fact a he and he was fighting with Jasper. Jasper never did build much of a bubble nest, though now that "Jewel" is alone, he has built a bubble nest to cover half the 10g tank. luckily I was able to get my hands on two for sure female mustard CTs and am conditioning them all as I type to see who works out. I will post pictures later. I'm a little frustrated cause this is the second time this has happened to me, and they really did look like girls when I bought them.
"Jewel" shall now be known as Joker

I took some pictures of the copper babies at 6 weeks.
I also have a picture of what Joker looks like now...sigh.
I'm also going to start a whole new post for the CT spawn and leave the copper and chocolate spawns here since they are already in progress

Thanks, I was really lucky to find him, though at the time I was really hoping he was a girl, especially since I got him from a tank of female bettas. Oh well I found two other CTs that are for sure female and they are mustard gas colour as well.

And as requested, here are some yellow/choco baby pics. I have included some pics of their older pair of siblings which are from the first time I spawned this pair. They hatched 11 Dec 13 and the younger babies hatched 25 Feb 14. The older two give me hope for what I am going to get for colour out of this match
