In your first spawn, it seemed that you were too impatient. I hope in this spawn you have given them enough time.

Keep in mind that bettas, like other creatures, have different levels of aggressiveness. Some would attack the female if she is "late" returning to the nest. But this doesn't mean their done. So if the female still returns to the nest, that means she still carries eggs. Sometimes the spawning process can take a full day. It depends on how often they embrace perfectly.

I hope you didn't take out the female prematurely, because it may cause her problems.

I'm happy for your successful spawn. Good luck on raising the fry.

The male started chasing the female away from the nest after they embraced and the female swam away to the back of the tank. So I think they were done.

thanks. It takes about 36 hrs for them to hatch right? I have my tank temp set at 86 degrees.

I found that keeping the water temp at 80F will get the hatch within 24-26 hours and at higher temp I would get faster hatch but weaker fry, water hardness is also a factor in hatch time and health IME.

Congrats by the way...looking forward to hearing more about your spawn and pics....what are your plans for feeding the fry? I have fun and enjoy watching the fry eat, even as tiny as they are they are still little mini fighters with lots of personality...cute little buggers too.....
