Breeding Attempt

So, I am attempting to breed my marble pair I purchased from yvonne chaban. I am using the shallow spawn method. So far, the male and female "danced", then the male tried to bite the female. The females is now escaping from the male, and darting away if he finds her. Hopefully this works out. Any tips?

Just ignore them. I use this method all the time. Keep the lights dim and avoid distracting them. I have spawns happen in under 20 minuets (like the on that's dropping eggs as I type...) and almost always under 24 hours.

Well, they both seem to be... sleeping. Is this a bad sign? I really want this spawn to work out.

Rubbermaid tub, heater, silk plants, and a terra-cotta pot. I noticed the male seemed to be making a bubblenest, but then stopped. He doesn't flare at the female anymore.

Great, they both seem to be somewhat lethargic. Why do my spawns never work out. Should I remove them or what?

Yes, take them out and place them in separate containers and start making some daily water changes on them and feeding well

Double check your plastic container and make sure it is human grade safe for food...look and see if any numbers are on the bottom and look them up.

Well, I woke up to a bubblenest. No spawn yet, but the pair is acting normal. I don't think the female likes the bubblenest though. She went up to it, then swam away.

That is fairly normal spawning behavior, the female will stay under it when she is ready, just be patient. (I have attempted at spawning bettas before so i have expierence. I just have never had a succesful one sadly so i know how you feel.)
