oh, okay. I read this post:
Quote:
i introduced the male in the tank and then thirty minutes later i added the female in a jar. both went bolistic and flared at each otheer. he built a bubblenest within 20 minutes and she was eggy so i released her and she went right over to the nest and they spawned. But the male never went to get the eggs the first time. the female ate them all. then the second time they wrapped he got the eggs and appeared to bee putting them in the nest. but then i checked the next day all the eggs were gone from the ones i thought he put in the nest.
which you posted right after you said you would re-condition, and I thought you had stuck them back together. My bad ^-^;;;

Correct me if I am wrong but I don't see any of the pictures with any Catappa Leaves ( also know as Indian Almond Leaves ) in it ???'

Terminalia Catappa Leaves, also known as Indian Almond Leaves, is the leaf from a large tropical tree in the Leadwood tree family. It is considered native to tropical Asia & northern Australia, but is today also common in tropical parts of the Americas.

Catappa leaves have been a long kept secret of breeders of Bettas Splendens (Siamese Fighting Fish) in South East Asia. It was long ago noticed that fish that lived in the waters next to any of these trees ( the leaves of which would fall naturally into the waters ) were found to be healthier and more vibrant than their counterparts. It was surmised that if one were to introduce the leaves into aquariums one could achieve similar conditions as found in the fishes natural enviroment. The leaves were found to help keep their fish healthy with strong anti-bacterial properties and promote better breeding.

All you need is to add one or two piece of the leaves into your breeding tank, and there will be no more Egg Eating problems any more.

I've read (some members here) that you can substitute IAL with oak leaves (don't know which kind though). It may not be as good as IAL but it works and above all, it's free.

You should try artificial hatching if you don't have another male and/or can't get a new pair. IME egg eaters will always be egg eaters. Sometimes they miss a few and these get to hatch. But most of the time they will eat the entire batch.
