He has stopped attacking and started flirting now. He's trying to entice her over to the nest, but isn't having much luck. The female is pretty tired and torn up. I wouldn't want to go with him either! Lol

It should be soon though. Hopefully.

Let's hope she starts flirting back, then all will work out.

One of my favorite parts of this is when after the male is done with his nest, its like he is saying sorry, then flares and he thinks she is supposed to just follow him after being so worn out and tired of running.

I think bettas have anger issues lol. I think the challenge of breeding and raising them is what has always attracted me to them! (Besides their finnage and colors)! I love how they each have different needs and personalities. Just like us!

No eggs yet. But they have been busy today.

The somehow managed to move everything in the tank by a couple of inches. The bubblenest, the java moss, the weighted down fake plant. I guess the feng shui of the tank wasn't right for breeding.

He also made an ENORMOUS bubble nest. It's huge. HUGE.

And they are now getting pretty cuddly with one another... well, at least as cuddly as a betta can be! He has a few nips out of his fins that were not there before, so I guess she got her revenge.

I can't believe how long this is taking... both of them were SO ready to breed and you can tell they both want to do it so badly, they just have no idea how. That's first timers for you, I guess.

Pictures from today...
My poor, beat up lady fish:

And pictures of them "snuggling":
