i would keep trying but honestly i think they are just mocking me now. ive tried like 8 different females and 3 different males. have a very young male, 6 month male, and a near 1 year old male and no one still embraced for me. something in my setup is wrong. there is one thing wrong that is causing them not to breed. my suspicions are because my light is too bright, but i think they are just mocking me.

Sun- awwwsss, well it just takes time :) I LOVE that 2nd pic too! xDDD He turned around and looked RIGHT AT ME as soon as I snapped it hahahaha. <3 Mars.

JS- ...I don't think the fish are mocking you... o__O; Maybe you don't have enough hiding spots for the females? Or didn't have them conditioned long enough? They need high protein foods at least 2 times a day. I feed mine frozen blood worms and betta pellets. The light might also be too bright. My bf's uncle bred them in Vietnam when he lived there. He says that they like darker places to spawn, as it seems peaceful and quiet. :) Hope that helps!

Js: You know, that's because you condition for a week with pellets and freeze dried food. Fish dont mock people... Please, let's focus on youlovegnats for this thread.

Anyways, Youlovegnats, congrats on the fry! I love seeng a successful spawn =D. I love that second pic of your male, it's like he's saying "Okay, you can take the picture, but I'll be watching." Lol. I cant wait to see them grow up into beautiful Bettas (=.
