okay so unfortunately i woke up this morning to alot of eggs on the ground and some were floating on the surface not in a bubble. the bubble nest is gone but tthe male betta is still under the nest, so i am going to wait till Wednesday to see if anything comes of the eggs if not i will introduce my other conditioned pair to the breeding tank. so i guess this betta was not a good father at all

Am I allowed to post links to other websites? Anyways, on www.waynesthisandthat.com there are about 50 pages on bettas, including an experiment with hatching the eggs without the father betta.

well know the male ate all the eggs on the top of the tank and i read that eggs need access to oxygen so i decided to clean up the tank remove the one male and replace it with my other conditioned male and im going to spawn with my other female in a day or two and see what works if not ill just recondition and try again

I'm sorry it didn't work out for you. I hope the other male does better. Males are all different. Some will eat all their babies and others are good fathers.

Ya i know it sucks but i really wanted this male to do well because i wanted to breed him with my white crowntail so i could possible get yellow crowns but so much for that i am going to try my luck with my purple female and my red male and see how they go and if all goes well then ill use that female with my my red male, and right now i am conditioning my black male and my white feamle

Ya i know stuff like this happens but this male didnt know anything he didnt even put the eggs in the nest or even try to eat them it was all the female. But i have another male and female so hopefully things go well with them, if not im getting another breeding pair that i will condition then i will breed both my black male and white female and my new breeding pair and see how that goes
