Crowntail Betta

This is my crown tail betta Flash. He lives in a 10 gallon tank with some zebra danios, and a phantom tetra named Casper.

I watched them for an hour, no nipping or aggression, both are young and first time breeding, matched in size.
Now all he needs to do is start his bubble nest, may take him a few hours to twig, but he will eventually.
Are you breeding them in this tank?

If you are...it's completely wrong. You must never have gravel in the tank and if I'm wrong and your not breeding them, you need to separate them.

:O You bought him in the morning and just made him breed? NOO! TAKE HIM OUT! You must condition them for 2 weeks before breeding! Aaaah!!

I appreciate your advice, but this is how I have always bred my BETTA, it works, I have no problems at all.
The male is now attempting to blow his bubbles, like I said, they are both young fish, this first breeding may not be successful, but the second will be.
They are getting along fine, when a successful breed is accomplished, these 2 will live in the same tank for the rest of their lives, a larger tank of course with more weed.
I know it may go against everything you know about BETTA.

Did you even condition them? Oh and you are wrong and it is VERY bad to have gravel ESPECIALLY WHITE because the parents would not see the eggs and you would only end up with 1-40 fry. I know you wouldn't want that!

I don't condition my fish, they get varied food all the time.
Just so you can see the different way I have my fish, this is the communal tank of 1 breeding, mom is in there also, dad died of old age.
There are more fish in that 4ft tank out of view.
I do not mollycoddle the babies, only the strong survive, there are to many weaker strains in the market, I have strong fish who adapt well to changes.

I wonder what kind of quality of life those fish have if the male and female are living together forever.. Can only imagine there's a lot of ripped fins and missing scales.

And how old is old age!?!?!?

@Bolder: What do you mean when you said that the second time it will work. Do you mean embracing?.

You should just get a bare tank and attept this in that tank..
