I am new at breeding and read everything about it on the internet before beginning. Our male beta we had almost 4 years died and we bought a new one. Meanwhile already having a female in our 10 gal tank with other fishies. She now has a protruding white dot under her and looked up what it was. So my daughter and I set up his tank with a jar inside with the female in it. He was not making a nest until I put a cut styrophome cup in the corner. He will come out from under it to showoff to the female and return under it. Now he as become obsessed with trying to build his bubble nest but the bubbles keep poppping!! He has been at it for 24 hours! Consistantly coming out to show off and return to his duties! If someone could help that would be great!
P.S. I have no filter system in the tank, water temp is in the 70's and plastic plants are in tank with one past the top of the water.
