So I've separated the pair this morning. They were both sleeping half out of the water, on top of leaves. I almost freaked out this morning thinking they were afloat and dead. The female seemed a lot more interested in the male but he seemed to have completely lost interest in breeding. Im trying out the jar method instead of using the divider this time. Is it normal that the female is much more agile than the male?
The water seemed unusually warm after I placed plastic wrap on top to keep humidity in. Is that normal? Also will the air become too "thick" and be hard for the Betta to breathe? I've left a couple more openings to fresh air to get in for now.
How long do they have to be reconditioned for? and do you feed live food daily to them during this period? I always exchanged between flakes and live food to give them a more balanced diet, but I'm not sure if that's necessary.
*Probably going to get my other two pairs introduced later today. Otherwise I'll probably mess with this pair too much and release them too soon.
