I'm not all excited about the fact of him being a pet store fish, but....I'll be silently watching because with interest to see how this plays out. Since you have a plan for breeding them, I'm interested in this log.

Wow that female looks SO full of eggs shes ready to pop in the video! I also just love her nice wide dorsal.

Several people habe already disagreed to the fact that he's a pet store betta, and I am fully aware that there will be consequences. Like you, I want to see how this goes aswell.

Yeah she's really plump now but the male hasn't build his bubble nest yet and it's frustrating =(

I know how you feel 100%. I know breeders always say never worry if the male doesn't build a nest (even i say it), but when I don't see one, I get a little frustrated because usually they do build nests in sight of the female.

Just be careful and I can say I'm a bit anxious to see what genes come out of the spawn. Going to be REALLY interesting.

Just turn off the lights and cover the tank. That is the key as well as IAL (If you have any).

Try to keep all the lights off from the tank, and check on them once in the morning and once in the afternoon with little disturbance, you shall have a successful spawn in no time..

This advice was given by Karen Mac Auley herself!:)

Ah well either way, IAL is a must for me....I usually don't get a spawn without it:) When did you say you're going to introduce the pair?
