my female mostly has dark DARK vertical lines and sometimes when she sees the female she gets horizontal but this is rare for her very rare! i asked the question about the cover because my male made a small bubble nest under the slanted end of the tank and thats it.do bettas build bubble nests when there is a storm?

Thats funny that you asked that because I just read in my book that nest building can occur when the barometric pressure changes rapidly.

vertical stripes are breeding stripes
horizontal stripes are stress stripes.

are they together? You dont have food yet!
also those nips will need to be treated or else it could turn into fin rot.
Thats why your bettas need to be in a minimun 2.5 gal aquarium so it could be heated, the water can stay fresher longer, then you can have a filter and add salt or medicate with melafix.

yes colour doesnt matter. what do you mean by brine shrimp.
Eggs, frozen, freeze dried?
So you are spawning in your 10 gal tank, it is heated, there is plants, the filter is off, its filled halfway?
Have you stopped feeding the male and female? Is there a light close by that can be left on so the male can see the eggs at all time?
When you remove the female what will she be going in?
When you remove the male what will he be going in?

Please reply about what brine shrimp you have!

they will all be in the same tank but with dividers. until christmas when i get another tank. its better than a bowl! i just have regular live brine shrimp they hatched a couple days ago and they have gotten a bit bigger. when the eggs are 2 days old i will put more in so they can hatch while i first feed them.

Okay, well you would need another divider then to keep them separated from the babies, however this is not enough space. Are you hatching the brine shrimp yourself, or buying them live? Because after 36 hours (I am not 100% on this time, it may be 18 hours actually) they brine shrimp lose their nutritional value and are useless to feed your fish.
If you have any other questions please feel free to PM me.
I dont like writing on this thread anymore, since there isnt any other input so basically is just a long private message going back and forth.
