How many times they embrace?

Hi guys!
My bettas are embracing and I'm so excited.
How many times do they embrace? I want to remove them to prevent from eating the eggs.

It's really up to them how many times. It can last anywhere from 2-6 hours usually. As soon as the female is chased from the nest and goes off hiding, you should remove her. Good luck! Any pictures?

Yea, there is no set amount... It all depends on the fish.

I wouldn't yank them out. There is a good chance a lot of them will fungus, and the male serves an important purpose in egg and fry care.

I agree with Matt! Leave the dad in as long as you can before they are free swimming.

They're probably done breeding. Is the female hiding?

I don't think she's hiding and I don't see any eggs.
I removed the female and conditioned it again. Am I doing it right?
