Really thats up to you! Females are ready to go after two weeks, however the longer you wait the more fry you could have. Is she pretty plump? Also remember when you introduce the female into her hurricane globe or what ever you are using, put holes into the globe because the male gives off a chemical that makes the females eggs rippen so she will be ready to breed. The thing i use is a two litre coke bottle cut the bottom and top off, then i cut slits in it with a knife, so the chemicals can come through

Well its not a chemical but a hormone, and yes that should be okay, once you release her into the take the eggs will ripen more

ok so i put Riot in the tank a couple days ago. He got a bubble nest going under the bubble wrap im using instead of the cup. I just put Athena in her hurricane chimney and im happy because Riot isnt being a wimp!!
I hope it works this time!!

what kind of container do you keep your riot in when your not breeding him? because if you keep him in like a container you should cover all the sides but one, and put a mirror infront of the open side once a day and he should be back to his normal self

i had him in a 1 gal corner tank (think they are called Aquaview) and after the encounter with Venus he cowerd away from my other males and his reflection.
so i riged up one of my 10 gals, put 2 deviders so there is 3 spaces for bettas. Put Riot in the middle and my 2 other males on the sides. At first he did exacly as mentioned above. But after a wile he was fine.
Wen i first got him hed flare away at his own reflection in the tank lol so now that hes flareing again im realy happy :D
