Talking Need guidance...

HI...I'M UZUMAKI39,,,I'm still new...
Yesterday , i bought a couple of betta fish,,,
the male just like the one behind the words bettafish.com...the female was blue in colour....
I put them into a same tank,,then , they started to glare at each other...
I just let them be like that,,
But this morning when I woke up ,, I realized that the male started making a big bubble nest while the female helped him..
Not long after that,, they started to spawn....
can someone tell me what to do ??

THANK YOU

I suggest you seperate them asap! Males and females should honestly never be kept together unless you are a prefessional breeder.

What size is your tank? If the eggs hatch your going to need a big tank, lots of space and a ton of knowledge on bettas!

Try to get some live foods fast or the fry will die of starvation.
Get another 2 more tanks for the adults.

Prepare tanks for the parents.
Since culturing infusoria is too late now, you can feed them hard boiled egg yolk (2-3 times a day), Feed about 2mm cube egg yolk per feeding. Simply squeeze with fingers and dilute. Try to get some fry food , asap. They will out grow egg yolk in no time.
Change 50% water daily or every two days. Left over egg yolk will quickly foul up the water.

remove the female after spawning. leave the male to tend to the eggs. try to leave a low wattage lamp on so the dad can still see them at night to tend to them. very subdued lighting.

It's important to be prepared when you breed. You need the right setup and the right foods. Right now, I wouldtake Indjo 's advice and start the fry on hard boiled egg yolk.
