Sorry but he needs to blow his own bubbles. The bubbles have a kind of adhesive on them that helps the eggs to stick to the bubbles. Yeah, you could try again tonight but I think he needs to have the nest built before introducing the female.

Good luck! I hope your male perks up. Does he ever make nests in his regular tank?

No, I he there was a tiny nest once, I dont know if he made it or if it was just a cluster of bubbles from water changes and such.

First the water is way to high!!! drop it down a couple of inches.
The vace is perfect and the plants are great. But I didnt add plants I just have 3 big decor.
Def. DONT let her drop her eggs. Put her back in the vace....Then add the male. People say you have to put the male in there a week before...nope just put him in first and her in right after or the other way around.
He will flare at her and they will swim around the vace together a couple of times.
I am sure once you have the water down the nest will be made by morning!!! Once the nest is a good size watch them for a hour and see how they are acting towards eachother. Then see if she has her pearl showing and introduce them.
If they get to ruff at first and he chases her take her out for a couple a min (still in vace) then introduce them again. They need to tolurate eachother to spawn. And if the still bully like chasing take out....But if he just flares at her and backs away dont worry, they are testing eachother.
She also might head a couple of times when bullied. Dont feel sorry until you see a injury. Because it could spoil everything....
If this works and they do wrap around eachother and spawn. Keep in mind that the more eggs droped the more fry.....
And you will be able to see the eggs drop and the male pick them up and then blow into nest.

Alot of typing.
Ask anything... : ]

Oh and a way to know that they are about ready to spawn is when the are under the nest together and the male is showing no agression

Hey guys, if you saw posts from ibetta, that's me, since my first account didn't work.
You need a heater, and a filter. Looks great though!

The water level is fine, I've spawned in full 10 gallons, bettas don't seem to mind the higher water level. The water level should be from 3-12 inches.

Okay thats good. And you do have a heater? But the filter is not needed! The fry dont need a current.
What are they doing now???

That is fine for breeding. But what will she do when the fry come and swim to the top af 12 inches of water.
The answer is they cant.
Fry have very low stamina when they are young and will lost all energy if they tried to swim that high.
As they grow you can add water and clean as normal....
