So, I have done my research, again, and have my 5 gal breeding tank all set up.
Got the heater
Got the plants (fake ones. all the places where I live have snails all over their real plants. It SUCKS)
Got the cup for the nest
Got the male in there
Picked a female that he likes, but all she wants to do is beat him up. I have other females, but they are not ready yet and still really small. The picked female is showing signs of readyness, but really tries to get at the male with an open mouth.
Any suggestions? This is my 3rd try at this. I had one good go with my yellow SD and VT female (who has passed on), but there was never any eggs outta her. Not sure why, she looked like a wrecking ball.
Can anyone give me some tips? The males I have down, but how do I know when the female is ready? I know the body pattern, the egg spot. Its the aggression I am having the issue with.
Also, do you wait till the male has a bubble net before adding the female in the cup? Or fut the female in before he even started the nest?
Any help would be awesome. I really want to learn to master this so I can produce nice bettas for shows some day!
