Question no bubblenest???

Hi so i am currently attemting to breed my male Roger ( after roger taylor drummer of queen) with my female Ember. I put the female in the 20 gal tank last night after introducing him first. ( she is floating in a covered jar) And i have been feeding bloodworms onlyand i see no bubblnest in the syrofoam cup half thats floating in the tank. Does the water HAVE to come up to no more than 6 inches? ( i would but my sponge filter is up near the surface so yeah... Other than that my setup seems fine. Plenty o hiding spots ( trust me there is a lot! ><) and the water is exactly 80 degrees fareinheight ( or however you spell it lolz) good water quality and of course healthy bettas! When will he make one and will he ever make one???? This is my first time breeding bettas so i could use some help! Thank you!!!! He is also flaring at her a lot and swimming around explorin his new crib lol.

UPDATE!! i just looked in the tank and the FEMALE is blowing bubbles and has a very noticable egg spot!!! YAY Hopefully the male will start to blow bubbles!!

How long has it been since you introduced them?
It usually takes some males a couple days to make a nest while other will build one right away. Just give it time ;)

I'm having trouble getting my female to show her breeding stripes. She's been in my 10 gallon tank with two different males. There is a bubblenest, and I keep the water around 80-86 degrees but nothing has happened. I've been feeding her live brineshrimp for the past two days and still nothing. She looks to have a round belly and I can see her ovipostor but still nothing is happening.

Sounds like it hasn't been long that they've been in the breeding tank. If so, give him time! Patience is one of the most important things about breeding bettas. :)

Im having the exact same problem. If her belly is round and her ovipostor is showing, is it okay to go ahead and release her?
