new spaning log- pk x ct

Hello my fellow betta breeders/keepers. This is my plankat male and crowntail female spawning log. bare with me as I figure out how to post pictures. My goal is to get plankat crowntail betta, two of my favorite kind of bettas.

my tanks set up
-Cup for males bubble nest
-Cup for female
-10g breeding/grow out tank
-Fake aquatic plants
-And bettas of curse

The male is named dragon because he is a dragon scale, he has wild coloration, meaning blue, green and red. He is the one in my profile pic.

The female is a Cambodian, meaning pale body with colored fins, her fins are blue at the bottom, where they connect with the body, and purple at the end.

They have been conditioned, and paired up today Feb./ 28 / 2015.

( umm... can anyone explain how to post pictures here. thanks. )

no updates yet , but I can tell you guys how do I do my breeding. is like every other breeder you need a cup for the female and a Styrofoam cup cut in half or a piece of Styrofoam plate. then you need to leave the male ,with the female in side of her cup. he will start to flare and make bubble nest, after a period of 2 or 3 days the male will be in breeding mode making a ''s'' shape as he gets closer to her. the female will take about 5 or 6 days to go into breeding mode, meanwhile you let her out of her cup for a minute or so he will chase her around, depends on how aggressive your male is. when you see that she is exhausted put her back in to her cup, then do that again after the next day until she is finally on breeding mode. how do you know when she is in breeding mode? she will go to the bubble nest and make the ''s'' like dance. this method has worked for me and is a great way to reduce injuries and fin tare for both of the fish.

here is how the male would do the ''s'' dance ( sorry if you don't like the video but the was the best I could find)

PS: notice how the male seems to stop and move its tail but not go anywhere, that's the ''s'' dance.
