The males colors will be more dominant mostly reds and dark blues, but there is no telling what recessive genes the male may carry to let the females genes show, through you will get a lot of vt probably maybe some round tails. I am not a genetic expert though. And good luck

it seems like its gone back a couple steps once again, but its better than that whole confusion phase where i wasn't' sure if the female had ANY interest.

so what i do is that i keep the whole glass chimney submerged when i initially released the female so it would give her somewhat of a hiding spot as well. when she goes inside the glass chimney, he male would try to catch her attention from the outside. she tries to chase him through the glass and she'd dart out eventually.

From there, the male would chase her and she'd run to a corner like she's been doing.

So pretty much, that part is on repeat. Male finds female, she swims away, sometimes flare for a quick second then continue swimming. She does her S-Shaped swim occaisionally. The only downside is that she's running away from the male like she did in the beginning. She's no longer going up to touch him or embracing him. I still feel that there is a very very very slight possibility that she might've lost interest, but i don't think that's the case.

on another note, she does stay by the bubble-nest A LOT more often than she did in the first couple of days in the tank. she runs away quick though. is that a good sign?

It's a good sign that she's near he nest a lot, but it's been far too long IMO...
I'd say try again in a coupe of weeks. :/

I shall see after tonight. I don't want to stress them both out for too long. I really want my female to heal up.

I felt too bad for the female because she must've been frightened beyond imagination already. I took them out and placed them back into their respective tanks.

I placed water conditioners and hopefully the female will heal up soon. She seems to be quite relieved to be back in her tank.

The worst I felt was when I took the male out. He worked so hard on the bubblenest and it was the biggest bubble-nest i've ever seen. He was willing to mate the whole time and I just took it away from him without waiting a day longer. What I'm afraid of most is that he won't ever be as willing anymore. That would suck.

I cleaned out their tank and put my Micky Mouse Platy Fry in because i heard fry growth spikes up exponentially when they're in a large tank, which i find to be true because i discovered three after the initial group i found in the main tank and they were several times larger than they were. Hopefully in two weeks, they'll be large enough to go back into the main tank and i can place the bettas in there once more.

Thank you all so much for helping. I'm sure I'll still freak out next time I try but I'm pretty sure I won't be as scared as I was this time. I hope the second round comes sooner than we think and that it'll be successful. I think they would make fine bettas.

I wish to keep in touch with you all.

xD It's totally cool. No need to freak out or be sad. :) I'm sure he'll be willing to mate next time, and even your female too. As I said before, it take a lot of patience and practice until you get it right- and once you do, you'll almost never have troubles again xD.
