Female Betta Not Ready?

My female betta doesn't seem to show interest for the male or the bubble nest when i put her in. She's showing breeding stripes and her ovipositor is showing. Shes on the small side though.

Any suggestions?

Just give it time. When she's ready she'll join the male under the nest. As long as they aren't fighting I would leave them in there.

When he chases her is he actually nipping chunks out of her fins? Unless she's got a lot of damage I would leave them be.

the male has bitten her body once or twice, some scales have come off.

Some male/female bettas are not meant to be paired up...

Maybe you should try another female.. maybe she'll be the right one.

Good luck.
