Smile Marble Delta/Crowntail Spawn Log

okay so I have conditioned these guys for 2 weeks and they are ready to breed. Even though they are petco bettas, my petco is really good. They are about 5 months old. They flare the heck out of each other but the male isn't much of a bubblenest builder. Pics l8ter. Haven't introduced them yet.

If you float the female in a jar or see-thru cup next to whatever you have for the male to build a nest under he should start making a bubblenest. If that doesn't work I will tape a small mirror next to the nest site. That way he'll think he has competition. I'll send something from my secret spawning bag of tricks with your fish order to help with the spawning. Shhhh!

if he wont build a nest when he sees her, he may not be ready to breed or doesn't like her. i had the same problem. if you put her in the tank with him so he can touch her, then take her out like 5 minutes later and put her next to the tank. he might start building a nest then. this is how mine did. good luck with breeding. i just conditioned both my females and my male for like 3-4 weeks and I still cannot get them to breed. it is hopeless with me.

If the fry have a 180 degree spread to their tail they will be Halfsuns otherwise they would be considered Combtails. Spawning the offspring together will bring back various degrees of Crowntails and Deltas. I put my pair in the breeding tank with the male loose and the female in a cup an hour or two before lights out at night. 15 minutes before lights out I let the female out of the cup and leave her all night. Unless you can watch them I suggest you take her out until you can watch them to be sure they won't fight too much and injure one another. If I am able to be there I leave them together and usually they spawn that day or the next. Once the male has eggs to take care of he will start building a better nest. This is were my special ingredient comes in. It stimulates their spawning and nest, egg and fry tending instincts. It also makes the bubbles sticky as to hold together better.
