okay well im not totally sure they may just not be compatible. when you put then together were they in the same tank and the male didnt flare or anything? Again how old are they? Also im not sure what the effects of freeze dried bloodworms would have on bettas when conditioning, i would assume it would be okay, hoever live or frozen food works the best, i dont like using much live food as they may contain parasites but i do use hiarki frozen bloodworms as these have been through an intense filtration system to block out parasites.

your not going to like this but you may need to condition them again. You will need to have your male betta in the breeding tank and then a female in a hurricane globe then when he builds his bubble nest again and she is barred, release her and let them go

okay whatever tank you are using as your breeding ADD the MALE first let him adjust to his surrounds for 2 days or so dont add the female right away, once the male has been in the tank for two days then you can introduce the female in the hurrican globe and let her sit in there for about 1-2 days or until the male has a pretty good start on his nest. then once his nest is pretty big release the female and let them do there thing. I never said you would have to recondition them i said you might need to because you added both male and female together at the same time. Just take it slow and add the male first and let him get use to his new tank. What size breeding tank are you using?

Don't put the female in with the male until he has a decent sized bubblenest.
