Bettas won't embrace

I have a question as well. It is: I have my male and female bettas in the breeding tank, she is plump with eggs, has the vertical lines, and he has a HUGE bubble nest, but they aren't embracing!! Please help, first time as well

Patience . . . . courtship may take hours to days (my longest is about 1 week). If they are in breeding mode, they will eventually embrace.

Okay, will do. He (for some reason) moved the nest to the back of the tank when it was on the side. Oh well.... Quick question: Are the eggs fertile if they are an orange-white-yellowish color?

Golden EE

Hey I know this is off-topic, but yesterday at Petco I saw a GORGEOUS golden EE. His tail was torn, so I could get him for discount sometime soon. I need opinions, and quick, because sometime in the spring I want to breed a pair of EEs, and he looks perfect

Here's a picture of him guarding the nest(don't know if it will work):

Oh yeah and also, I didn't choose the name. He was supposed to be my nephew's, but it didn't end up that way

Suitable/perfect individual or pair depends highly on your goal. If you can get him for a discount, I'd say buy him. Torn fins IMO has nothing to do with the genetics and will not affect fry. If you don't breed him, he will make a nice collection.
