No, actually, when I got home from an uneasy day at school, because I didn't want either one to get hurt, they seemed less interested in each other than before. Fish was starting to get stress stripes, so I decided I didn't want to risk their lives, and I separated them. I decided to bid on a HM male, and ask to buy a sibling female, too. So, hopefully in the future I will attempt to breed them again :D

I'm sorry things didn't work out. The hm pair sounds like a good idea so maybe you can breed them.

It is okay, I guess it is like the saying, "she's just not that into you" lol.

Yeah, hopefully, because he is SOO pretty, and I am sure the female would be just as nice. They would make some pretty babies, but I already know about 10 people who want a fry from my fish, so that would limit the sales lol.

Maybe you can try the same pair in a couple weeks. Maybe they just aren't ready right now but that could change later.

Yeah, I am going to re-condition them, and then hopefully try again. So maybe in a 3-4 weeks? Hopefully they will be better then ;3

I am just so happy that no one got hurt. The worst was a small bite on fish's belly, and a bite on Banana. But, just to be safe, I am medicating both :3

Good idea to medicate as a precaution. Yeah, try them again in about a month.

Yeah, it would be horrible if one of them got an infection from a bite!
Hopefully by then I will have gotten my awesome HM I won, I will post the link below. I am just in love with him, and I really hope they have a nice sibling female available.

Thumbs up

your bettas sound like they are doing everything just right, it takes mine 3 days to usually get in the actual spawning mood, the male will run her off if he is not satisfied with his nest. Also after he is satisfied the female will approach the nest and if she doesn't like it she will retreat until she does and the male will work on it somemore but when they are both satified everything will go really smooth. Hope this helps. :-d

@ CindyLou - Okay! I will keep that in mind. But they weren't even interested in each other. He stopped flairing after a while, and didn't even pay attention to her when she went by the nest.

@ Andakin - he/she said they where shipping them to linda olson the 26th. So, most likely I will get them the 27th or 27th because the time zones are different.
