Spiridion X Hattie- Attempt #2

In my first spawning attempt, Spiri ate all of his eggs, and ate most of them just after he had embraced Hattie. So in total I had about 30 in the nest (which he ended up eating anyway.). If he hadn't eaten them all, I would have had about 50, easily.

So they're back in the five gallon and within five minutes of putting them both in the tank, Hattie has breeding stripes and Spiridion is already working on a bubblenest. If he eats the eggs this time I will be very angry, to put it rather bluntly.

I didn't get many good pics of Hattie, she's a fast little bugger, and he's constanly in front of her and seems to cover her up whenever I take a picture of her. But here are some pics of my lovely Spiri boy looking his best. Hopefully he'll build one of his nice big thick bubblenests soon...
Sorry for the big pics

im going to start my own betta breeding over again, but we start school on the 8th and school is going to mess with my breeding. also it will take up at least five months if i have a successful spawn.
