That's unusual then. The photos looks like a bubble nest and from the photo of the fish it looks like it might be a male. Strange how that happens then. Guess you learn something new everyday.

I actually still find the whole situation hard to believe. I've seen males with fins shorter than most and my belief is that Hermia is not a female at all.

I thought that as well but she says there were eggs so it must be a female. Just a shame she couldn't get a photo of the eggs for us to see.

how bazare! i think this goes agianst everything i know about betta mating. i can gaurantee that the eggs will never hatch so u can either leave them to be eaten or take them out. this is soo unusual becuase males usually take care of the eggs not females, and you said shes gaurding them? truely incredible thank you for sharing this phenomenon with us, just when you think you know it all. i wonder if maybe befor you got her the lfs had her in with a male?

maybe, idk she was in a tank with a few other females and gouramis

when i first got her she had the egg spot so that might be it.

i dont want her to breed anyway, so i dont care that they wont hatch. i have eough babies already
