Yet another spawn attempt... with Karen's fish!

I'm due to leave in 4ish weeks, but my parents are going to raise the fry and will be shipping to me after a few months :) They are fish fanatics in general but have shown a special interest in bettas and breeding! I had transferred a few of my girls to my dad's tank at work and I'm extremely surprised at how much the "baby" girl grew and they all look fantastic :D

Anyways, here's a quick vid of the courting... how are they looking? It's yet another pastel spawn so I would like a few opinions on how the female is looking!

Oh, here are pics of the momma and daddy (also my avatar pic)!

Lol man this female is such a spitfire! The male keeps trying to embrace her, but she hasn't given in yet! They've been at this "nipfest" under the bubble nest for nearly half an hour now hah. They are by far the most aggressive pair I've seen attempting to spawn, but amazingly there is literally NO damage to either! LOL poor guy, he is still trying to wrap her from over top, but she isn't letting him... Hopefully she'll accept him soon, they're ruining the nest! >_<

Edit: Oh good, the male is repairing the nest :) He's such a good guy!

Ugh please tell me the female will eventually give in hah. The male is like "Dude, you're under my nest, now submit!"

If it's their first time sometimes it takes a little practice.
Keep up updated!

IME/O expecially if they're younger than 4 months it just takes them a little longer to know what they're doing. Don't worry, they'll spawn when their ready... and IME fish from this line like to spawn when you least expect it LOL

Lol they're soooo close! I've never seen another pair go at it like this. It's impressive :D Currently they're taking a bit of a break (they're a little tired ;) and the male is adding on to the bubble nest.

SO excited!!

Edit: P.S. 1fish2fish I LOVE your signature banner :) What a pretty name for you breeding persona!
