Your temps must be higher, between 80 and 83F. My bettas don't even live in tanks with temps that low. Try upping your temps. Other than that, what's your set up like? And how long are you leaving the male in after he's collected all the eggs? Do you use Indian almond leaves?

yea, your water temp needs to be at 82F you should look for a heater where you can adjust the temperature to that level
