Yea, how long does it usually take for the male to blow a bubblenest? I don't think he has even started. He had a few bubbles in his last tank, but it always got separated because of the filter being on.

I came home for lunch today and found my mom had gone into my fish room and turned off all the lights and heaters, needless to say, my water temperature dropped dramatically to about 72 when I caught it....
I'm afraid these temperature fluxes are going to make my fish sick, the temp is about at 77 now.

Should I start conditioning another male beta? I have a veil tail I could try...

Oh an d I was looking really closely at the female and she is a double ray crowntail, it's hard to tell in the picture, maybe I can get a better one. I may just go buy another male crowntail...

So Dracos made a really small bubble nest... he didn't use the lid, instead he thought it was more convientant attached to Avas tank... lol

I put them together, but his bubblenest is still probably too small. They both are ignoring each other. Dracos has tried to flare for her, to show off, but she's more interested in the bottom of the tank...

Ok this is just regarding the sticky, it's just an overview of breeding but can't be relied upon to be enough info. I would look at www.bettatalk.com and maybe www.bettysplendens.com. But I do like the sticky either way :)

Ok trust me on this you WILL need a helper to breed these fish LOL. At leas you have one :P

But you look like your almost ready, good luck and be sure to keep asking questions :)

Are you referring to my sticky? Yes, it's just a gemeral guideline for breeding. There are several different ways of breeding bettas.

They have been together for a;most two days now, and the male still hasn't built a bubblenest...

He isn't aggresive at her and she isn't aggresive either. They just swim together or around the tank, I've even caught them eating together... Occasionally he's flared for her(showing off) but he only does that a little. I tried putting a mirror next to the tank to make him jelous, but that doesn't seem to work, however he does try to fight with himself.

Should I keep them together longer or try a different male?

Maybe they were not conditioned enough. You could try pulling them out and reconditioning them, feeding them good food twice a day and having clean water for about two weeks should get them ready.
