Iv'e got the temp at 27dC. I have ordered some Indian Almond Leaves and am going to try and find some Oak Leaves, Im not sure i'll be too lucky finding one where I live. My male seems very interested, he's very proud of his little bubblenest, I think that problem is my female. But I have tried swapping my males as I have 2 and my other was very nasty to Tiny. Congratulations in all your successful spawns. And thank you.

27 DC is okay. I had my temp up to 82 degrees. :) I was successful with my first spawn 5 weeks ago...my biggest tip/advice is to keep the temperature at a constant one, and dont worry about the male chasing the female it happened to me, the female was even torn afterwards....it got pretty aggressive. I suggest maybe turning the light off while they are loose together.....after I did that within a couple hours they were spawning :D

Yeah her Ovipositor is showing, she looks fat.. But I cannot see vertical bars. I think I may need a different female.

Thank you animallover4lyfe. I was having trouble getting my male to make a bubble nest so I added bubble wrap and left the light on overnight and within hours he was making one, so proud of my little boy. They seem to be ok together, it is day out so ill trun the light off, should i try making the room a little darker?

Hmmm ok. Well you can try just turning the light off, if you usually kept it on ? If u want i know people even cover the tank with a towel or something so the bettas cant see out of the tank.

Ok let's back up a second.

Gloria could you please answering the following questions for me?

What size is your breeding tank?
What is your set up? How high is the water? Is there substrate? Do you have any place for the female to hide?
Do you have something for the male to attach his nest to?
What is the temperature of the tank?
Did you condition the pair? How? For how long?

Answers those and we can go from there :)
