I'm glad everyone likes them :)) so before bed I took careful note of the situation. The male is either still building or still messing w his bubble nest. The female no longer hides and will occasionally peek under his nest. He then chases her away; and it almost seems like he catches his mistake and then flares and tries to wiggle dance her back under the nest haha. So far there is very minimal fin damage. Just a few shallow splits. I'm hoping no one gets bored! I'm also hoping 1fish2fish is right and that it happens tomorrow morning :)))

So nothing yet, but pretty close. They constantly engage each other and it's pretty sweet... They give each other little kisses almost lol. Hopefully this means they're actually closer to spawning!

Most bettas seem to spawn in the morning if there is no movement outside the tank within 3 feet distance. Good luck with this pair! I hope to see your name on show winnings in the future!

They look like they're about to embrace. Here's hoping!

Very nice pictures. I missed it when my pair spawned. I watched them for hours, they would get close but then she would run off. They decided to spawn while I was at work. I didn't realize it until I checked the nest and saw the eggs.

Good luck with this beautiful pair.

The couple is still just chasing each other around the tank and now the nest is slowly starting to disintegrate... any suggestions on what I could do to tip the scales? They are interested in each other still, but just short of embracing!
