Yeah! It's a feeling like no other!!! You guys are great supporters! Maryrox and I thank you.

Updates: DEFINITLY more courting! Queenie has 2 pin holes but other than that, she's fine. I'm gonna leave them in the tank overnight, hopefully they'll embrace at night!!!

Got the BS cultures going...

OKEEY...

It's day two and no embracing at night.

She got one more tiiny pinhole and no damage on the male...

Queenie keeps a close eye on the bubblenest I hope they embrace today!!!

Fallen Leaves is constantly working on the nest, and what he does sometimes is try to "corral" Queenie into the bubblenest:)

What I have found to encourage spawning is to have the room the tank is in with the lights off. Now the tank itself I cover first with plastic food wrap ( Dont forget air holes!!!) and then find a large cloth or unused shirt (DADDY'S SIZE WORKS THE BEST!:) preferably dark and cover the tank again with it. this keeps air and moisture in and also keeps the spawning tank dark day and night!!!

Campbell: Fallen Leaves (Proud parent, Dead Sunlight) is a MARBLING (Woo Hoo) orange RT with a black head and black trademarks on his body. He is also the betta who will soon have a half-blue half- orange anal fin (WHAT A MASH OF COLORS!!!)
Those who want details on this funky analfin color, can pm me:)

Queenie (Proud parent, Maryrox247) is a dark bodied Combtail female with red fins!!!

The possible outcome of fry due to Betta genetics (thx 1fish2fish and Astrata!) Since female traits are dominant, they will all be combtails, and long finned males,
multicolors
reds
CAMBODIANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

more updates soon!!!

You'll want to not darken the tank, if you stimulate nighttime the fish will be less active and take longer to spawn. Most breeders leave the light on 24/7 during spawning, some (myself included) just turn the light off at night.

Really? Cause I read in a betta handbook that darkness along with little to no distractions stimulates spawning

Never mind, I took the cloth off.

I agree with 1fish2fish

I have more success at night with a tank light then i did in compleat darkness or during the day.

Well good news and bad news... Queenie nearly killed fallen leaves BUT there is a good possibility that they were finished embracing from last night and we didnt see... I looked at the bubblenest and about 50% or so of the bubbles looked cloudy. How can you tell if there are really eggs in the bubblenest or am i right with my guess?
