One thing I have never learned is well water... Is iron bad for bettas or causes problems for breeding? Lol I have lived in cities so it never occured to know.

I add an iron supplement to my plants in my betta tanks and haven't had any problems, don't know what the actual answer is though

If it is a commercial fertiliser like Seachem Iron the actual iron content is usually very low so it might not be an equal comparison. I am not sure on the iron front causing any problems but I'd recommend checking it out further.

Well I finally threw my fancy HMPK pair back into the spawn tank. Female is so much more assertive this time around and is barred up and ready to roll. Male has been in a breeders' net for ages now in another tank and looks like a completely different fish (not in a bad way).

Fingers crossed I get fertile eggs this time around. If not I am going to break down and cry. They are such a lovely pair and really compliment each other well.

Well they are spawning sporadically. Not sure if they actually know what on earth they are supposed to be doing. Female swims under the nest, wraps with the male, they go down and look for non-existent eggs, female loses interest and swims off, realises male is there and the whole cycle repeats itself haha

Even my virgin wilds were less awkward than this and this pair has done the deed before. Male gets one more chance before I switch him out. If that doesn't work will have to use my other female.
