Smile Spawning The Thai Way

So I have finally decided on a pair of my bettas that I want to breed. I am doing this for colour and a chance at raising life this way.
My male is a pineapple delta.


My female is a blue and red veil tail.
(I don't have a picture of her at the moment.)

I have them in a small container with about 3.5 cm of water. There is also a small cut of hornwort that the male can build his bubble nest on. So far they both seem to be doing fine but I'm hoping that if I just let nature take its course then I will get some eggs within the next few days.
I have also decided that if there are no eggs in the nest by the fifth or sixth day of them being together them I am going to cancel this spawn and try another in a little while.
From this spawn I am hoping to get some red/blue washes, maybe some butterflies, and hopefully a couple marbles/kois.
I'll keep you all updated on their progress each day.

Good luck!! It's too cold here in Denver to spawn this way. I can't wait to see the results.

I'm spawning them inside since I'm in ON, Canada. I have a tiny heater that I put in the container to keep the temperature up for them. I have also substituted one of my other male's bubble nests so that this pair can use it. My male seems to have trouble building a nest so hopefully he can figure it out and expand on what I've put in there.

In Thailand people just throw bettas into little bowls to breed them. I'm a fan of the shallow spawn method but that's a different topic.

I find it quite amazing how people from Thailand can breed bettas that way. Thats exactly why I am trying that method. I figure that if they can produce the outstanding fish that they do with that method then why can't I?

They can because conditions are perfect. Bettas come from Thailand bettas breed best in Thailand. But breeders have their own secret way, its a family tradition. They've been breeeding like this for hundreds of years.

I wish I could go to Thailand to visit a betta breeder there and see their set up. It must be so hectic when feeding time comes for all those fish, lol. Plus, how do they sell all of their fry if basically everybody is breeding their own.
