Yeah she hides in the plants and over in the corner hear the heater, theres also one of those half-log decorations she can get under. I just went back in there & he was vigorously working on the nest & she was swimming around underneath it but then he chased her around again & she lost her stripes lol. But when he stopped they came back.

Everything I read doesnt say anything about what happens if stress stripes appear on & off durin chasing, which is what is frustrating me so much.

Oh, I'm guessing it's normal as the courting can take up to three days. As long as they aren't overly aggressive I'd say let them keep at it and if she's still not responding after three days re-jar her :) She should be fine when you go to work.

No, no, it's alright LOL.
The only reason I'm not completely lost on breeding is because my sister and my nephews dad are Betta breeders. I'm starting soon, too, and tried to find answers to questions online so I didn't have to ask them, and I was left with no information. -_- A lot of people make it out to be easy online but sometimes I'm thinking it can be really hard haha. I wish they had a step by step guide!!

They should be okay overnight, if he isn't being too aggressive, or if she isn't. It would be okay until morning too, as she has places to hide. Maybe set up a camera to film it? That would really suck missing it! ):

It really would. She's hanging around the nest a bit more now, but will still run away if he chases her. Its so exciting yet so frustrating!

As much as I enjoy talking to everyone on here, asking questions scares me sometimes because people seem to get really agressive because I dont "have all the facts" & that means Im "clearly not ready to try breeding"

Yeah, eventually she'll get used to it!! Sounds like they're doing great!! :P

Yeah, that sucks, I know what you mean. Everyone has to learn at some point and in doing so you have to ask questions!! A lot of people don't get that, and forget that they've probably had to ask question too. -_- Annoys me.

Had my head snapped off for answering someones question once too. So I try not to answer too many lol!

I wish you could video them courting! Would be interesting to watch :P
