hey all, my fist post here. i've had betta for as long as i can remember but i've never attempted breeding them. after doing a bit of research i've finally decided to try breeding them.
my current set up. 15 - 20g tank, heater set at 26deg, heaps of floating plants.
i first added the male to the tank. i'v had this guy for nearly 1year now, after a couple of days i added the female in a funnel container in the corner of the tank. i waited for a day to observe them.
the male built a massive bubble nest in between the floating plants & female got her vertical stripes so i introduced her to the tank. after a lot of chasing the female seemed to have settled to the bottom of the tank & then hide between the plants.
after about 3 - 4 hours, i moved the female back into the funnel. now i've tried this for nearly a week now with no results.
the female gets stripes like a tiger barb & the male is building almost a new nest every day...so what am i doing wrong? some tips & advice would be appreciated.
