it has something to do with eggs and a female, maybe an ovipositor. However I believe you missed this part!
YOU NEED TO HAVE FOOD READY AS SOON AS THE BABIES ARE BORN IF NOT THEY WILL STARVE AND DIE!
And just so you know a male can blow bubble nests for various resons.. With stimulation, (ex. seeing a female) or even just being happy a male betta can blow a bubble nest for you. You need to watch them for over 2 hours, and take the female out when she is done. If they are getting too rough with eachother. Nipping a lot of fins, and stuff remove them now. Just to make sure you are breeding in your 10 gal correct? Also is your sponge filter a seasoned sponge? Has it beeen in a tank that has completed its cycle, so it has all the bacteria your aquarium needs. If not you could experience a cycle with your betta fry in the tank. This could probably kill all of your fish.
Just so you know if the sponge was in a seasoned tank,but has since been taken out and dried. The bacteria has died and will need to go through a cycle again.
