Ok, thanks for all the advice. When do you suggest I release them? I mean what time. Like before I go to bed, or does it really matter?

I usually release the female close before dark (no extra light). They usually become less active at night - less beating up. But they sense each other. Just remember that first timers may take days before they spawn - so give them time. As long as the female is not half dead (so to speak), leave them be.

Good luck.

I moved the styrofoam cup to a different location to make room for the bubblewrap. Five minutes later there was a little bubblenest -_-. Bettas never cease to amaze.

I let them together. It is interesting how different they are acting compared to my other spawn. This one there hasn't been any biting he leads she follows. Although they haven't actually spawned yet. I have my fingers crossed.

Thanks, they are a pretty odd couple. She'll be hiding and he'll be blowing his nest. He'll then come fin her and she'll follow him back to the nest. Then she'll either leave of her own accord or he'll chase her off. Maybe she doesn't like his bubblenest.

They probably aren't ready yet. Give it a few days 3 or 4.

Well, they started spawning, but the male won't pick up the eggs. The female got a few. Like 6 or so. But there are a bunch just on the ground. Maybe they aren't fertilized.

Well, she's actually picking up all the eggs and putting them in the nest. She's a better dad than he is. :o
