WOW that website was awesome! :) So he built his first bubble nest last night and now she is in a glass jar and it is amazinh to see him go all crazy and flare and swim around her.... I hacve a feeling this is going to be an intersting spawn becuase she keeps flaring at HIM, and he runs away, then comes back.. ect. then he goes into shock mode and freezes, but he's not doing that quite so much anymore. Sunny just stares and flares. :D

If she keeps flaring and not showing stripes Vertical stripes that is! and "lowering her head in submission" **, From what I read she may not be willing to spawn. I'm not a breeder so my opinion isnt one to sway this whole operation but you may want to try another female if you have a sibling. Her flaring constantly means she might not ever let him get close to her. But thats what I've read.

Someone sent me this website too. I've been reading it here and there as I would like to try breeding around next year at this time.

You've never seen bettatalk? LOL. It's the #1 betta website. A little noobish for me to continue reading it but good for a new hobbyist.

Sunny is still flaring, but she will get in Sparta's fins and not bite..... Sparta runs away and then goes really still... then Sunny leaves him alone and occasionally he flares and swims the S for her.... what to DO??><

be patient and wait unless you see serious damage, I suggest watching you tube or researching proper courtship behavior. There will be chasing, some nipping, he should be showing off, flaring at her, making the S formation, and tending his bubble nest. However if she does not receive him and make her vertical breeding stripes, lower her head in submission. Then you need to spend time watching them because she could ravage his gorgeous fins. He is a beautiful male.

thanks! I think I'm gonna hold out on the spawn log, just woke up, no eggs, but she's not being as aggressive and now Sparta's holding his ground and trying to lure her under his bubble nest.
