Okay let me first say please try to keep all your threads together instead of starting a new one for something that is very similar to all your other threads. Unless you are going to want to post about something totally different please keep them in the same thread. We do read all the new posts so we will get to it. Thank-you.Now to the problem at hand. There are a few reasons the male may have eaten all the eggs, first it may be that bettas first time spawning which sometimes he does not know what he is doing, second the eggs may have been infertile so the male disposed of them, third you may not have conditioned long enough, people think that males dont need to be conditioned for long periods of time but they do, at the minimum 2 weeks, some people say one week and they can go but that just wont cut it in most situations. another reason may be that while you are conditioning you are not feeding them high in protein and fat foods, like live foods or frozen mysis shrimp, bloodworms etc. so you might need to switch to something like that. Hope this helps

no it is okay we are just trying not to clog the forum with so many threads that can be kept into fewer threads. Well just condition longer and you shouldnt have a problem because you have spawned before just not successfully :(

Well they can be a wide range of prices and that depends on colours how nice the fins are etc.. but here at my store for the normal ones a crowntail is $5.99, and a halfmoon is $20.00
