First spawn attempt
Alrighty so technically this is my second attempt ever at spawning my bettas. The first time around the female beat up the male pretty bad and I just figured she wasn't ready or didn't like him, so I went back to conditioning.
This time around I've chosen a new male, but kept the same female. They seemed to be doing well at first, but now he's chasing her around the tank (they've been in the tank together now for over 24 hours). I've asked around and a lot of people have advised me to leave them for at least three days before calling it quits. The male refuses to blow a nest. The female isn't showing bars (although she's a copper so it'll be hard to spot them on her). However, both have shown very flirtatious behaviour which leads me to believe that they'll eventually spawn.
I've attached a picture of the parents, if you're curious. What would you classify them as? Any guesses as to what their offspring might look like? As far as I can observe, Nelly, the female, is a copper HM of some sort. Oberyn, the male, is possibly an opaque butterfly HM. Again, I'm new at this and these two were just some nice fish I couldn't pass up as I saw them while I was receiving fish at work.
