Hello everyone :)
This would be my second attempt at spawning my beautiful Bettas, Shimmy and Shinny. The first time, I found it very difficult and so did my fish. They were very frantic and the male seemed to bully the female quite a bit throughout the courtship phase (which I know is somewhat natural). After two days, they were embracing but they ate the eggs
Both the male and the female suffered from torn fins but they quickly healed up in less than two weeks.
Now, I have prepared another spawning tank and let my fish become acquainted with one another. I have noticed that the second time round, they are both much calmer! They're just floating around side by side. Yes, they are chasing but there is no biting and so far, their fins are in tact.
Has anyone else experienced this before?
