Ok, So after a good 17days of conditiong all of my Bettas, I decided that I would pair up Tiny and Dragon.. Well Tiny decided, I put her beside each other the other boys tank one at and time and watched for the reaction of the two of them.. In the end it was Dragon she seemed to like more..
I gave the pair an extra feed and then put Dragon into the breeding tank. A few hours later I put Tiny in, in a breeders net and watched. Dragon was doing the whole wiggly dance and swimming in a snake pattern.. Tiny was doing the same and trying to follow him EVERYWHERE.. Eventually I let her out.. It was 5:30pm last night when I released her in with him, set of the lights and shut the door (for extra privacy).. I woke up at 8:30am this morning to fnd Dragon dancing under the nest lurin Tiny and LOTS of eggs on the bottom of the tank..
I didn't see them embrace for a little bit, then they did, 3 more times, each time a few eggs dropping.. Dragon made NO attempt to pick them up.. Tiny would swim away, expecting things were over and he would wiggle towards her then back to the nest. Eventually he noticed the eggs on the tank floor...
I saw him pick EVERY one of them up and then go to the surface of the water and breathe.. And went no where near the nest.. And evey now and then he will try and lure Tiny back to the nest (for another embrace?!)
So.. What now? What do I do? Am I not getting any babies? :$
