Can you tell us more about your spawning tank and pre-conditioning methods

Right now-I would place both Bettas in separate containers so that they can't see each other (neither in the spawning tank) and mass feed live foods to get them in condition to spawn....once we know more about the spawning tank and conditioning foods we can help you better.....

Also, what food do you have planned for the fry...

And what about the spawning tank? Micro worms are extremely small, you might want to try something bigger.

Try hatching some BBS or Baby Brine Shrimp. Also Daphania is a good fry food too from what I've read. Live food are always better for the fry. I've also heard hard boiled egg yolk works as well...

Omg my bad! I didn't realize you were talking about the fry!! I thought you were feeding the worms to the adults for conditioning.

Microworms are great for fry, so don't worry :)

1. If your bro played around with the fish in their breeding tank, the fish must have been stressed and no longer wants to breed (for now). Take them both out and recondition as stated by others.

2. Some males won't make bubble nest (yours does). But all would "flirt" swim all over the tank in an "S" sort of way if they want to spawn. So next time never release the female if the male swims to her head on and holds his stand.

3. There are many kinds of fry food. There is a sticky on fry food. You should read it.
