I tried other males (to build the nest for him) but they didn't build nests either >:[

Ok so I found her out side of the chimney chillin with the male :P

He was occupied with fighting with the other male in the tank (in a jar, I'm hoping they have a nest building war).

I'm still waiting....

The courtship has begun!!!

He has taken chunks out of her tail and is very agressive but, after an attack he gives her a few minuets to recover (what a gentlemen, sort of, lol). I hope they spawn by tomorrow.

He has another males nest in the tank and I think he thinks it's his own.

Good luck, I have never had luck with breeding either.

I was going to recommend a water change, Ive heard of this encouraging spawning in other fish so it might work, but is sounds like your past that point.

Ohh and do you have a pic of him, I really love black males. (that sounded wrong )

Ok after living with the male for a few days he has finally built a nest. All I had to do was feed him HBH Betta Bites.

When he said "I love black males" it could be interpreted as "I love african american males".
