OK, I can relax for now.... He learned from the female and actually started picking up the eggs and putting them in the nest. I actually put the original female back in with him because she was so active and fiesty in the hospital tank. Something told me that she could handle it and wanted to at that! lol After I dropped her in they spawned in less than 10 minutes . I know he is gonna eat a lot of the eggs, because many of them were not fertilized properly due to the constant wrapping. However I am guessing I will get around 25-75 fry when it's all said and done. He has put the eggs into a specific area and is tending them well so far. I am so excited! Man this guy was full of it! lol

I sure hope so because I just bought 4 new females and I need him to spawn with some of them.

Congratulations! Sometimes it just takes a little time for them to get the hang of it.

Yep! Super glad that he finally did too, he is sooo pretty lol.

The mom is still doing great too she is happy, no fins and all

I checked on the father today and he is still tending the nest, he was not scared by my presence and that's good because I have him in my fish room where my jarred males are. I was very worried that I would disturb him with my daily water changes but he actually could care less.

Whenever one of my females gets beaten up, I'm always suprised that they act as if nothing happened. She'll heal up in no time, if my experience is anything to go by.

I think so too, you know what made me put her back in? I kept thinking about plakats and how short the females fins are already. I have seen pictures of the females after spawning any many of them look like body's and no fins! I took a chance hoping that she was better off than I was imagining in my head and I sure enough she was fine and still is. Spawning betta's can really make you have to trust mother nature and your intuition sometimes.

Can you please please please post pictures of the babies when they start to get their colour. The father was so beautiful I'm sure the babies will be gorgeous. Hopefully they won't share his temperment though. :)
