let me guess it is IAL. I have wanted to get some so badly but not even the betta specialist store has one. And thanks for the comments about my male. He is a lucky find. DEfinatly a marble. He went from being cellophane, to cellophane with red splashes, and now he is getting black with blue rays.

so i uncupped her and they went right over to each other and flared at the same time. First he nipped her then they flared again and she nipped him. Now he is chasing her. Her fins arent clamped. Thats a good sign. Good so far. No damage to fins or scales it seems. She isn't barred up because she is a marble cambodian and most of her body is flesh colored, but she is huge and full of eggs. Is this sounding good.

So far so good. Just be sure it doesn't turn into a fin shredding fight. And no to IAL. Actually it's oak leaf tea. I raised 15 fry to adulthood in '09 from about 14 spawns. The males would eat the eggs and or fry. This last year I have raised over 500 and have several hundred still growing out because of the spawning tea.

they are chasing each other but not nipping. and it isnt consistent chasing. he chases her and then she hides and he goes back to his styrofoam cup with his small nest and continues to work on it until she comes back out and the whole thing starts again.

It's almost like she's coming out of hiding and asking him "Are you ready yet?" And he's like "no! Go away and leave me alone!" lol

Here's my suggestion...
Keep the activity around the tank to a minimum. If possible, cover the tank so the fish cannot get startled by sudden movements outside the tank.
If the male considers the tank is an unsafe enviroment for the fry, he might end up eating the eggs.
I've found that giving them privacy is very helpful. Of course we want to look and I still peek in to watch but I restrain myself from taking pictures, as hard as that can be sometimes.
Best of luck!
