I decided to try the whole breeding thing again today, I've only ever tried with my royal blue VT male & his usual gf (twice), but they never get any further than their babies hatching & then they disappear.....
....so today I decided to try Brunei, my lovely yellow/orange VT male & a female from my selection (un-named), so i'll call her 'the misses!'
pictures coming soon....hopefully it'll be 3rd time lucky! **fingers crossed**8)
the guy at the aquarium nicely for free gave me some lovely moss like plant that floats at the surface (which i raised the hint that it'd be great for breeding my bettas & for their bubblenest), so he broke abit off the plant in a display tank & gave me it!
The bubble wrap thing was good, especially to build a nest under, but i think what happened last time was, once the fry hatch, they couldn't get any air under there to breath, therefore died....maybe?
