OMG OMG it actually Worked!!

OMG my bettas are spawning right now and they are both so awesome!!! It is definately a team work situation going on!! they are both going down and getting the eggs and bringing them up to the nest..i was totally not expecting it to work but it is! so its so awesome!! i had just put her on his side because i just wanting him to squeez out the eggs for her but they are both great so i guess im going to go get a 5 gallon and splitting it for my two adults...sweet! and give my fry the whole 10 gallon!

Too make egg yolk easy to use all you need are an ice cube tray, one egg, and a mister from any cheep dollar store.1 Hardboil and egg. 2 smash just the yolk in to two cups of water. 3 stir and poor into the icecube trays, freeze it. 4 take one ice cube and melt it into a half cup of water 5 put into the spritzer. (shake it up)6 spritz it once or twice over the fry tank. (rember open Lid of fry tank)Return spritzer to the fridge , it keeps for three days. no more,Replace it with a fresh cube. Do not spritz more often. Do it twice a day. Morning and evening. That gives the fry time to eat it. You must vacumm the bottom of the tank each morning after you start this. DON"T LEAVE ON THE BOTTOM FOR ANY EXTENDED TIME I found that the eggs yoke doesnt really work but feel free to try

they take 2-3 days to hatch, typically the higher the temp the faster the hatch rate i keep my temp at 86 and they hatch in two days flat. If you dont see eggs in the nest he probably eat them however if there is still a bubble nest then dont take it down because there may still be eggs that you cant see. so be patient and see what comes of it
