Well this whole back up male thing is a no go. He is way too aggressive for her. She has no anal fin and about 1/3 of her caudal. Still hanging on. Aparently he has more interest in nipping and trying to kill her rather than spawning anymore. He was tying to get her to the nest yesterday, but she was at no chance trying to go with him after all that chasing. I dont blame her, but seriously speaking, he is just too aggressive for her. She WAS aggressive and a little energetic female but not so much anymore. I am hoping that when she recovers she will have a lot more confidence and some more aggression than she did the second attempt. I really hope the saying is true ("three times he charm") and plays its part. I wont be using the back up male any longer. Maybe later down the road. Thouh I hope to get a different female for him. Definitely dragon of course. This trio isnt really cooperating. So my documentary is going to be very delayed. Ive never had so much trouble with a pair before. I thought they would be easy quick breeders, though I cant complain with how beautiful they are.

They are ruining my documentary and I might have to change pairs around again when she heals up. Hopefully I get through this. I will try one more time.

Should I do this in another thread or in the same one?

I'm sorry it isn't working out! The pair from the same spawn that I put together last night seem to be getting along ok, no eggs yet though... It could be a number of things. Feel free to pm me, we can figure out what's going on.

Darn those naughty bettas! Especially since you are trying to get a documentary going. I sure hope you have better luck next try.

Sorry about your spawn.

First time females usually need a longer courtship(?) time. Males may beat her up badly. Hideouts where males can't follow is helpful - the female can rest and regain confidence.

Very well. Thanks indjo. Ive just never struggled with breeding since my first time. Though I wont give up. I will wait untio she is all healed up and gets back to flaring. Then wait another week or so for conditioning and try again.

Should I start a new thread or use the same one because this one is getting pretty old. Though this time I think i'll wait until I have fry to be updating on.
