My male betta mated with my female betta on Monday.. I removed the female and left the male to care for the eggs in the bubble nest.
Now it's Saturday and the eggs have hatched and the babies are free swimming..
My question is.. When do I remove the male? He seems to 'NOT' be eating any of the babies and he's caring for them.. I've seen him pick up a bunch of them and spit them back into the bubble nest. Also, he's not eating.. Im assuming he's fasting.. but Im afraid he might get hungry and start to eat the babies.
Now the babies are either in the bubble nest and or swimming around/hanging on the side of the tank..
