My brother and I have two betta fishes. We didn't know about males and females about the betta fish. But here's something REALLY weird happen. I don't know if they should like stay with each other or not.
Well, our female betta fish released her eggs, but how? I mean, this is some information I got from wikipedia
"...for the male wraps his body around the female; around 10–41 eggs are released during each embrace, until the female is exhausted of eggs."
But she already released her eggs eventhough the male one didn't wraps his body around the female! (I haven't name them, LOL. I want to call "Aquaria" for the female. Suggest a name for the male
Here's some other information I found from wikipedia:
"During and after spawning, the male uses his mouth to retrieve sinking eggs and deposit them in the bubble nest (during mating the female sometimes assists her partner, but more often she will simply devour all the eggs that she manages to catch). Once the female has released all of her eggs, she is chased away from the male's territory, as it is likely that she'll eat the eggs due to hunger."
So should we let them stay together or not? Well, we tried. After that, the male started to flare his gills, just like what wikipedia said, but the female looks like she scared. And that makes me feel like I shouldn't do that.
