I have decided to to try my hand at breeding. I have 5 bettas, 2 males 3 females. Right now I am just introducing them and trying to see if they like each other at all. I decided to pair my Platinum HM male (Moony) with my VT female(Tonks) who is white with red fins. And my black and white male DT (Snape) with my red blue and yellow VT female (Fleur)
Moony and Tonls were flaring a bit when I first introduced them but after a whilr even though Moony can't reach her since she is in her own bowl in the breeding tank she still darts around to hide from him, and eventually he lost interest and went to sleep in his "man cave" as I like to call it
Snape REALLY likes Fleur. He just can't get enough of her there is never a second that he isn't flaring at her. she shows mild interest but is not nearly as excited about this situation as he is. Fleur jumped out of her section of the tank and I decided to just watch how they reacted to each other. Snape is really sweet he just calmly swims next to her (he was constantly flaring) but he didn't chase her or nip at her or anything. Fleur on the other hand didn't like this situation at all she darted all around the tank frantically trying to get away from him so after about 10 minutes of this I decided to put her back into her tank and lower her water levil so she couldn't escape again. She doesn't seem to like him too much any more.
I was wondering if I should separate them for a day or so or if I should let them be for a while to see if anything happens?
