Yes, recondition them for a few days. A week would be best. Is the father tending to the eggs at all?

Nope. He is really just swimming and flaring and swimming again and then flaring some more.

I really want the female to have at least another week because she is really beat up now. She has missing scales on both sides of her body and I think I'm going to need to get some treatments for her. They aren't TOO bad, but they are not good at all!

Probably just some higher protein foods, water changes, some fungal treatment and she should be good as new!

Does anyone know how long it might take to grow back scales? I would guess a pretty long time or are they kind of like fins?

I just cleaned the breeding tank water by adding water because I think there are plenty cultures of infusoria.

Bettas usually grow back their scales fairly fast, maybe two weeks? Sorry, I pay more attention to torn fins when I breed my bettas. Maybe someone else will have a more accurate answer for you.

I usually do pay a lot more attention to their torn fins, but I can't only pay attentions to torn fins when her scales are coming off from the male biting. I wish it was only her fins that I would have had to worry about!

Depend on how deep the wound is.
If it's just scale then about two to three week
But if it's a deep flesh wound it will take from three weeks to 1 1/2 month.

Alright now I am back into the process of reconditioning. The female looks to be getting better and the male as well. I hope this time they spawn and get it right.


It's just a couple of scales that came off and not a deep wound at all! Thank GOODNESS it isn't a deep wound.

That's great.
If you fail then try again.
I usually wait two week for male and a month for female after they breeded.

I agree! With bettas, I noticed that I have a much higher tolerance than with other fish and animals.

They didn't spawn at all so they should be fine in another week or so.

Aw, I just read, that is a bummer. Are you conditioning the backup or thinking about it if the next introduction isn't successful? I wish you the best of luck!

Just saw this thread... I'm so sorry about the failed attempt.
I really hope you can get them to spawn in the future.
As for the yellow eggs... it's normal. Eggs vary in colors, from white to amber so no need to worry about that.
Female turned out to be submissive... I remember you mentioning her aggressive behavior.
