I put Sid and Nancy in their tank. Sid is already working on his bubble nest!!

Pictures..

















I'm about to go set up Rio and Ada's tank so I'll have more pictures soon. I'll probably be releasing Nancy tomorrow night!

I decided to go ahead and release Nancy tonight. Sid's nest is HUGE. I put her in about an hour ago and nothing much has happened. Sid works on his nest then goes and looks for Nancy. He chases her around a little then goes back to the nest. Every once in a while Nancy checks out the nest but then runs away.

There has been no nipping at all, just flaring and chasing. I'm hoping they spawn while I'm up. I really want to see it.

I set up Rio's tank and put Ada in. They've been flirting but so far Rio hasn't started making a bubblenest. I guess he's a slow starter.

I have a few more pictures but I don't feel like uploading them right now.

Wow! That's a great sign!! i've spawned mine before, but the male ate his eggs. So I can only help you until they spawn, after that, someone else can take over... LOL Seeing bettas spawn is SO amazing....

Don't worry about Rio not making a nest. He might not even start it 'til morning.

I'm going to be watching him like a hawk (unless I'm asleep). If I see him start eating eggs (more than normal) I'm going to remove him.

I'm really excited. I'll probably wake up during the night to check on them LOL

So far no change. Sid's tail is a little tattered from chasing Nancy but doesn't seem to be nipped. I'm not sure if Nancy is just scared or if Sid is actually chasing her from the nest.

Rio has blown a few bubbles but not enough that I feel that I should release Ada. Its slightly harder to judge when to release her because she doesn't show breeding stripes. I'll probably release her tomorrow.
