I've had overly aggresive males, and overly aggressive females. Red bettas like yours are a little more aggressive than other colors/

What does the color have to do with the personality or aggression?

I'm not sure but all my red dragons from last year tore each other up. Not one spawn produced except one and no eggs and the sister killed her brother.

Red females in my community tanks also took charge as leader.

Males are very aggressive toward both sexes, and females are very tolerant to males, but never their own sex.

Yes, females can definitely kill males. I think one of our members had that to happen. I don't remember who it was.

Update: Well tiberius has a HUGE bubblenest that is literally bigger than the cup so hes making more around the cup!! i will see how i can get pictures up after-school and finishing my H.W.

They still havent spawned yet though:/

Also, whenever HE is under the nest and SHE comes under with him he wiggles his caudal fin and swirves back and forth in one place. is that normal does that mean hes ready?

And when she sees that she looks as the nest and swims away, is this spawn not going to work or do they need more time? Passing today will have already been three days:/ and they are not embracing, what is wrong with them?

Should i wait a little longer and give them some time and be pacient or do i (unfortunatly) have to start over!!??? i hope not!! its frustrating and such a hassle and hard but i like it for the challenge! they are wonderful but i dont know what else i could do! the temperature is at 78-80 all the time and i talked to a breeder and he said "that is fantastic so keep the temp at that"!!

It sounds like she's ready at least! I heard some males won't let the girl approach them until they think their nest is ready, but on the flip side some girls won't approach the nest unless THEY find it to their standards! :D lol!
