I don't think you should be breeding them, simply because there will be that many more hobo bettas living in cups under the shelf... its sad and cruel to breed an animal, knowing that thats whats going to happen to it, i wanted to breed bettas once, but didnt have the space or knowledge, and im glad i didnt now.

Cool

It is possible that he jumped into her tank, they spawned and then he jumped back into his own tank.

Remote however...

During the embrace the female releases eggs while the male release semen. Unless eggs were released through this process, they won't be fertilized. It doesn't matter if they embraced a few times then separated - later eggs released without embrace will not be fertilized. So there's no point in trying to save the eggs.

Some females will release her eggs if she can't spawn. But she will probably eat them the following day, if not immediately. Females that can see or previously were with males may try to save her eggs (parent instinct) but she will later eat them.
