Just remember, no matter what method you choose, it's actually all up to the fish.

You can also float a cut off bubble wrap to help induce the male to blow his bubble.

@Jibruno: Is she able to escape him? How long have they been together? Is she released from the glass?

Well it just depends on how big you want the bubblenest. (When I was newer to breeding, I would usually wait until the bubblenest filled a least 1/3 of the 1/2 cup and then release her, though now I just throw them together and they breed within a few hours to two days.

It is different with other bettas. You see I have never had such trouble with my fish before. They would usually breed in a few hours, but now the female is a little too submissive and the male too aggressive for her so I have to try the other breeder male Draco.

It's really all on you to call the shots.

Well this will happen for another couple of hours to 2-3 days. Sometimes if the pair is young, this will take long, but if they are spawned once before or are a bit older, I would say they would spawn in a day or a few hours.
