I guess on the brighter side of this (I'm trying not to get too upset, this happens right?) I'm taking Marina back, she is deffinently a he. And my boyfriends dad said he'll buy me a female to replace Aqua. So I'll have two new females either today, or Monday. I've noticed that Fishy deffinently has to be one of my most docile fish and I think I will try to breed him next. I can't see him being aggressive at all. But that won't be for a couple more weeks.
But still, I'm upset. I feel like I did it all wrong. I don't get why this happened, because he kept making that bubblenest and she had breeding stripes like crazy. *sigh* the things we get ourselves into when we love our bettas. I can only hope that the next time I breed, this doesn't happen again.

Some are gentle some beat the crap out of each other. Merlin was at an advantage because he has less tail webbing which makes him faster. Poor Aqua.

Oh and the bigger and flashier the fins...the slower the fish.

So sorry to hear about Aqua! but you know that Merlin didn't mean it. Good thing you took her out though, you were trying to save her when you did that so I hope it makes you feel better.

Vikki, you did NOTHING wrong!! Please don't blame yourself! Its their nature to be aggressive while spawning and there will always be nipping and chasing, some more than others. Sometimes a female will beat the daylights out of a male. These things happen and, yeah, it IS upsettinng. I hope this doesn't discourage you from trying again.

Aww, thanks so much. That made me cry. I won't give up on breeding. I'm going to go buy two new females today. I don't think I'll try breeding again for another month or so. But I won't give up. I'll just release the female next time as soon as I wake up in the morning, so that gives me ALL day to watch them. And if nothing happens by suppertime, I'll go get a bunch of caffeine to keep myself up all night, lol. I won't give up, but it's just so upsetting because she's my first betta that I've lost. It's no fun waking up to a dead betta. I was hoping that since I put her in meds that she would be okay.
