Ok so today I have two spawning tanks that have pairs in them. Sorry to say that my blue grizzle VT got his nice long fins shredded so I replaced that pair with a DT Red Crusader male and a white bodied pink finned VT female.
The other tank has the Red CT pair in it. The update on that spawn is: the female has overcome her fear of male bettas and is approaching them nest. BUT the male attacks her and she has to do it all over again. Since this is his first spawn it'll probably take him a few more hours to get his mojo workin ;) The other tank is going good. A small nest and the female showing submissiveness. Cross your fingers!!!
