From what I've heard, this can sometimes happen. It all depends on the betta.

Males usually eat their eggs if they're disturbed or frightened. Have you done anything to the tank?

I heard around here that your not breeding right, and very badly, so that may be a factor. I'm not surprised your betta ate the eggs. But it happens to people.

Both Bettafish and Mr. Vamp have a point.

You said a few times that your fish were being "beat up" or something to that effect. They do get nips, but being "beat up?" And the male "beat the heck" out of the female? If you cared about your bettas and their health you would have removed them.

And I believe it was either a 1/2 gal or 2 gal tank you were breeding in? The breeding tank needs to 5 gallons or larger.

Either way, it seems you haven't done your research, or researched enough.

And yes, it happens. I spawned once, but the male ate the eggs.
