i introduced the male in the tank and then thirty minutes later i added the female in a jar. both went bolistic and flared at each otheer. he built a bubblenest within 20 minutes and she was eggy so i released her and she went right over to the nest and they spawned. But the male never went to get the eggs the first time. the female ate them all. then the second time they wrapped he got the eggs and appeared to bee putting them in the nest. but then i checked the next day all the eggs were gone from the ones i thought he put in the nest.

Hi, I'm a newbie too at betta breeding. I have tried spawning my bettas about 15 times and only have 3 successful spawns. lol

In those 3 spawns, it seemed that they were gone the next day, but they were still there. The next time i saw them they had already hatched. :D

yep.. Wait for two days and see if the eggs have already hatched.
If it has been more than 48 hours and still to tails hanging from the nest, then the eggs have been eaten.

Try indian almond leaves. Worked for me..

Shine a flashlight under the nest. You might be able to see them if they're there.

Wait, you couldn't have had time to re-condition them the whole two weeks in the course of a day, that simply isn't possible. One feeding between the next attempt at breeding really doesn't count as conditioning, and can be seen as irresponsible. If you want your breeders to preform at their best and breed well, you have to make sure they are physically at their best, hence why breeders condition them 2 whole weeks
