breeding question

i just bred my pair and it happened overnight.
Last night, the bubble nest was full and intact, but when i checked it when i woke up.. most of it has vanished! so now the eggs are on the floor, under the styro cup i put for the bubble nest. Is this an inability of the male? should I remove the male since he's not picking them up anyway? thank you for your replies!

Eggs were probably infertile. Go ahead and vaccuum the tank and get rid of the bad eggs.

is the bubbles popping a natural thing?

I read that the amount of eggs varies from 25-100+. the male knows what needs to be done.

let him be

when do you remove the male?

i've read that some males don't even have a clue how to do it or maybe they just don't care. what do you think?

The female isn't in there anymore is she? Do you have another betta? Maybe if you do you could scoop up their bubble nest in a bowl and gently add it to the bubblenest he already has. I have heard of people doing this on another forum i'm a member of.

If you do it gently enough it should. Don't just dump it in. Lower the bowl into the water and then gently tip it.
