WELL , ANOTHER UPDATE !

MY MALE BETTA HAS MADE A NEST UNDER THE ENTIRE CUP (YAY!)

im wondering usually what size is the female when they breed? Because my female is only about 1/2 to 3/4 the size of the male and i don't want her to get hurt. Her ovipositor(?) is showing , which usually means they're ready to breed?

Size doesn't really matter. Some people say that if the female is bigger than the male he'll have a hard time embracing her but IMO as long as he can get his ventrals close enough to hers he'll be able to fertilize the eggs.

When she shows vertical bars it means she is ready to breed. Now that you have a good bubblenest I would release the female.

my male made a big nest now, inside the cup and flowing out of it. So i decided to release the female. They swim in quick bursts and he has nipped her scales, and she has lost a few. No nipping of the fins though.

This probably means i need another pair doesn't it? :(

also, the female swim to the bubble nest and looked like she tried to eat some bubbles or test it out or something. She's not satisfied with the bubblenest?
