I had a young male and it took him about 3 hours to do it the female was patient and no one got nipped or hurt so I felt safe leaving her there. Although I always was checking on her. I hear its normal for a young male or a first-timer. Its a good thing you removed her though you can wait a few days probably and try again.

Hello and welcome to the forum!

Is this your first time breeding?
Also How long have you had the pair?
Do you have all the materials needed for breeding?


Since they are petstore bettas this must be their first time. I would just suggest curing the female to her fullest, then just wait a month if you want to try breeding her again. If you dont want to wait a whole month, get another female and try her.

Reaper, I have been breeding for years.....I have spawned a LOT of Betta's......In my experience it shouldn't take more than an hour to release eggs....

i agree that it really should take longer than an hour for the female and male to successfully release as many eggs as possible.

UPDATE:
I've tried mating the two again, and still eggs won't get released.
What may be the problem? Are they not compatible? Is the female's ovapocitor nonfunctional?

Pls help. ty

yes, this is my first try breeding bettas. i as very successful at swordtails, mollies, guppies and platties. this is quite different!

@beat2020: they are petstore bettas, but bred here. i live in south east asia. i estimate them to be 8 mos old at most.

@bettalover2033: yes it is my first time. i had them for about 2 weeks now. yes, i believe i have all the needed materials.
