yeah maybe it just isn't meant to be. i don't know. the male is still building a large nest and the female is just chillin with her stripes.
if anyone could help that would be awesome. i dont know what else to do. i think im doing everything right its just i cant get them to embrace each other. the water temperature, almond leaves, hiding places, 10 gallon tanks, tropical sun light, 6-7 inch water level. all the conditions are right. it's just a waiting game right now i guess i dont know how long should i wait. i could leave them in there 2 weeks and still no spawn. is it true that it will happen when i least expect it? like all good things in life, they happen when you least expect it i heard. i dont know but please help all i want are eggs and babies. i have banana worm culture ready to feed the babies as well as live plants and flake food. the baby situation is fine, i can find them homes etc. all i want to do now is embrace them. it seems like i've been on this forum forever trying to breed a simple pair of bettas, but they just never do. the male right now is building a huge nest. he checks on the female every now and then after a while and they like rub into each other. thats a way better sign of him just chasing her all around right?
