If you take a flashlight and shine it up at the nest you can see the eggs, they're more solid looking then the bubbles.

If this was a bust you at least know they're compatibly and how to tell they're ready so you can recondition them and try again in a week or two(two would be better if they're tore up at all).
They're not torn at all which actually shocked me, there were a couple of torn fins but actually all healed up right now

I'm wondering what would happen if I bred my royal blue crowntail male with a platinum/white with emerald streaks (on her fins) doubletail female. Would their offspring be double tail with crowntail characteristics? Or considering both doubletail and crowntail are recessive traits, would they have some other type of tails? I've seen some supposedly doubletail crowntail males, and they're really awesome looking...

Well it's where you hatch the betta fry eggs artificially. You can research it. IMO it's quite interesting and not very complicated.

Try it if you feel you would like to take the male out.

Awesome, congrats on the fry. <3

@minda- You would have combtail deltas most likely. you might get a couple doubletails. A combtail has only slightly reduced webbing:

Thats great. It was just a choice though. So if you ever feel that you would like to try it longer down the road I encourage you to so you can see how that experience would go.

Will do, my concern now is that the dad didn't make his bubble nest when the eggs hasn't hatch and now he's struggling to keep them by the small bubble nest and lots of fry are laying on the bottom, would they drown and die? =(

They won't drown, The father will pick them up from time time, if their just laying there and not wiggling/trying to swim they may already be dead, the father wll usually eat any dead fry.

Ahh, k thanks. He was too lazy to make bubble nest while they were still eggs, and now he's having a hard time keeping up with all of them

No. They wont drown. Fish don't "drown."

They won't die either. When they develop their swim bladder, they will be able to swim.
