EMERGENCY: I have eggs D:

So the reason I wanted a boy fish... was they were too big to sliver through thew divider. I don't know how she did it [she seems way too big] and while I was panicking that she was on the wrong side when I got home I noticed some of the bubbles are... eggs. D:

Nooo but I can't kill them D: What do I do?

I have two empty ten gallons. That's the best I got. D: My parents when I got home was like lol she was striping on her side and... well dang.

Help????

There are only a small amount of eggs so thank goodness. D:

Edit: Wrong thread I'm sorry I'm frantically setting up a 10 gallon.

Was there a male on the other side? Were they spawning or did you just find floating eggs? Unless you have a male on the other side that fertilized them, scooped up the eggs and placed them in a bubble nest, you're fine. If they're not fertilized then they're just empty eggs - like the chicken eggs we keep in our fridge. If you want, you can just throw them out. Otherwise she'll probably just eat them. Part of the spawning process is the males scoops them up in his mouth and the fluid in his saliva starts to break down the egg lining for hatching. Even if they're fertilized, I don't believe they can hatch without the daddy doing his job.

There is a male and they are fertilized and in a nest. He's being very protective :/ I don't want to sound rude but I'm not stupid lol

Oh my! I'd be panicking too!! I'm sure those folks over in the breeding section can help direct you. Good thing it's only a few. I guess congratulations are in order for your new, unexpected little babies!! Good luck! Ahhhhh!

I saw your edit: Certainly wasn't trying to indicate that you were stupid. I'm not a breeder by any stretch. You didn't mention a male in your original post and you didn't post in the breeding section. I was just trying to help.

Yeah I so posted this in the wrong section - who could I PM to get it moved?

Silly girl she waited until I was out of the house for a night to get her behind to the other side *sigh* She has some anal and top fin damage but otherwise she's still spunky and unharmed. I got her into a 3 gallon to rest up and then I'll set up a perma 10 for her later my little lady *laughs* Man I need to figure out food asap. Also I want to move the fry to another 10 gallon I have but I'm not sure when to do it :/ Thank goodness for all the dry tanks I have.

It's okay I know I'm just running around glaring at my clock since everything in life is closed right now and I can't get supplies until the morning. So I'm so worried.

Worry about food and where you will put the male when the fry are free swimming. I would transfer the fry at about 1-2 weeks old. I am not a breeder yet but that is my idea.
To get it moved Pm any mod, DramaQueen can do it for you.
I would talk to Creat and 1fish2fish about fry stuff

I think OFL oversees the Betta Care Section and I believe she's the one who can move it.

OFL, DQ, any mod can move a thread. OFL may be the head mod for this section but DQ can and has moved things from here and even helped members delete a post or two.
