Ok no worries! My bettas have been mating for hours and I kind of need to go to bed now! How long does this normally last?

A few hours. You can take her out if you are satisfied with the number of eggs.

Yeah on closer inspection I think he is. I've removed the female, fed her and put her back in her tank. How long should I leave the male in, just til the fry become free swimming?

I think you're supposed to take him out when they become free swimming.

Cool. I'm just hoping they actually hatch, I've just got home from work and no sign yet, but he's really enlarged the bubble nest around the eggs and is standing guard bless him! I never actually saw anything come out of him to fertilise the eggs, is this normal? I'm thinking maybe he could be too old? I bought him from a pet store as I have no idea how to find proper breeders round here, despite trawling the internet, so I have no idea how old he is. Also, I know he didn't fertilise some of the eggs as the female was still dropping them as she was in her 'stunned' state between mating, and he picked them up and spat them into the bubble nest anyway.
Fingers crossed for hatching anyway, it hasn't been 24 hours yet.
