No worries. :)

Your fish are safe and sound, that's the most important thing. Maybe next time they'll be more...'breed-y'.... ;)

Next time I'm totally putting on Barry White! It'll be hilarious if they actually spawn then! One of these days I will be successful :D I think I owe this all to my light colored females... I'm becoming a master of reading betta body language ;)

I read something about simulating rainfall to induce breeding in bettas. Has anyone else heard about this?

I really don't think you need 2 weeks to recondition. Normally speaking if you have a pair that is already conditioned but didn't spawn you can usually just take about a week to recondition and put them back together.

I would advise conditioning them this time in total isolation so they can't see any other fish at all for the entire period. That might make them a little friskier when they're finally introduced. I would also try not jarring the female but just adding her at the same time you do the male (in the opposite side of the tank).

Yey sounds good! The female does appear to be swollen w eggs still. Once I get home tonight I'll get the female in isolation since the male is already. Would you suggest having one of them in the spawning tank to condition? I don't know much about betta territory so I don't know if it'd help or hurt to have one of them already established in that tank.

Not sure about that one. You can try leaving the male in there and see if it makes him a little more aggressive.

I think conditioning one in the breeding tank will make them territorial when the other is re-introduced... which is what you don't want...
