Won't Breed?

I conditioned them for 3 weeks, they were in quarantine for 1 month, and Banana built a HUGE bubble nest, covering a corner of the 10gal, and it is about 1/2 in thick. Banana is flaring at her, and doing a little wiggly dance, but he isn't really biting her, only a few nips at first, and that's it. She is flaring back at him, and has breeding stripes, but doesn't go by the nest, or get in the right "position". She is still swimming around, and goes near him. I am not really too sure, because it is my first spawn, what she is doing. She has been in the tank for about 3hrs now.


Please, can someone tell me what is up? All of the levels are right, and it is heated correctly.

Thanks,
-SnS

Sometimes it takes awhile. Since its only been a few hours I wouldn't worry too much.

It can take up to a couple of days to spawn. Just keep an eye on them, sounds like things are going well so far.

Okay, thanks for the replies, they are very much appreciated!

I have been keeping a very close eye on them, and nothing too major happened, besides a nip here and a bite there. But, I know that betta courtship is pretty aggressive.

I guess I will let things go as they would in nature, and see how everything pans out :)

Good luck with them and please keep us posted. I think Vikki's pair took awhile before getting down to business.

I will!

Banana seems to some-what know what he is doing, and he keeps trying to get her by the nest, but she is still pretty weary of him, I think. He looks so cute doing his little wiggle dance!

Lol, I figured that, because he has the stereotypical "man" personality.
