Okay but red females that have a pale body, do they show breeding bars?

No, whites, cambodians, and some other colors you can't see them. This makes them a little more difficult to breed so you need to watch her body movements.

No unless hse drops her eggs then its useless and you'll have to start again. I say as soon as your male has a nest release her.

lol. It really isn't a big investment of money like some say. But your spending at least $100 not to mention the effort it takes.

I think they'll spawn within a few days. She's approaching him but then gets run off.

Sounds like shes ready.

In this case with bettas i found that the male decides when they spawn or breed am i right?

Well actually the female does. She approaches the nest and shows her submissiveness. If he's not ready he'll chase her away but if he is they'll begin the embrace and spawn :)
