Thanks ;)

Update: I released Athena at 3:50pm and so far Riot hasnt nipped her. He's just been flaring and following her around lol. Athena is showing the breeding stripes and aproching him.
Think i should put some attinson betta spa in?? its supose to influence spawning behavior. He's kinda stoped working on the bubble nest but its still there and he's still interested in flaring at Athena so i dont know.
It's now 4:20 here so Athena has been released for a half hour(thought id add the current time :D)

Personally i would not add the spa because it will stress the fish, although it is good for them and spawning it also lowers ph and this can be very stessful to your bettas, i would have been best to do it before you added either of them. Just let them ride it out, it can take up to 4 days for them to spawn as long as no one is getting hurt just let them do their thing and you should not have a problem

2 days or 1 and a half... Had Riot in there for 2 days then introduced Athena and now 2 days later released her as i said.
I guess the worst ill have to do is if the bubble nest disapears ill have to take them out and recondition ;) (but realy hoping i dont lol)
Just have to wait it out, wait it out, wait it out lol :D

wait it out a few more days. just check every morning and night and if nothing happens you'll just have to recondition, if it doesnt happen this time i would highly recommend switching females because it may be the female

a little nipping is good thing as long as no one is near death you should not have a problem
