Well I released her. She looked ready to drop her eggs. So far really gentle, chasing and attempted nipping. She approaches him (Billybobjoe is his name now lol and her name is Flara, as in flaring) showing full vertical bars then he runs her away. They're super gentle and I expect the spawn in a few days.

So exciting! I can't wait to see pics of your progress.
My male didn't expand his nest until the second day after I introduced the female.
Best of luck... post as soon as you give in and intoduce them!

The thing is is they got in from shipping yesterday. New bettas always spawn best for me, IDK why.

Like I siad super gentle and they're in a 5 gallon....for me less aggression occurs.

I put some of his old nest under the cup and he began adding to it. Shes approaching him full flare and breeding stripes but he's not ready. This was the same behavior my red VT pair did just before spawning......:)))))))))))))))))))))))))

I literall just got them Thursday. The female looked like she was about to drop her eggs and the male didn't like cooler water. For me newly purchased bettas seem easier to spawn. Sometimes I condition, sometimes I don't, dosen't seem to matter much either way since good care conditions them quite well.
