Betta First Spawn Attempt, Eggs Didn't Come Out

Someone, please I put my bettas together and they're having their first spawning attempt. I got it on video. They have hugged about four times, but no eggs have come out yet. Someone please give me advice

Where are the eggs they are trying to spawn, nothing coming out is one of my betta infertile???

How long should I leave them in there and how many spawn attempts does it usually take for the eggs to come out?

i'm really upset i wonder if maybe my female betta is too big for the male, it seems like he's having trouble wrapping around her, but they're about the same size it seems....:(

Relax. If your fish are virgin they will take awhile to figure out how to spawn. You're lucky that your pair is even embracing. Usually virgin fish will embrace many times w/o releasing eggs and hours later they will finally get it right.

Are you sure the female ate all the eggs and there are none in the bubbles?

No eggs after the first few . . . I've had no eggs for the first few hours of embracing, only few after that. Once the female is thin enough, it should rain eggs. The main cause of this is the female's egg passage was blocked, due to either too fat, too many eggs or both. But there is nothing you can do - if you pull her out, she will eventually release unfertilized eggs.

@ indjo, so you think that i should just wait and relax a bit. I came home from my part time job and they were spawning and i haven't been able to relax since, that was around 1:00. this is very nerve wracking because i'm worried she will eat all of the eggs
