Dame Black Copper HM x Sire Blue VT

Both Dame and Sire are first time parents.

17/08 (8pm) Introduction
(10pm) Female looking eager to join the male. Lights out.

18/08 (2pm) Female is released. They immediately hit off. No chasing, no nipping. Usual flaring and dancing.

(6pm) Female was in a corner scared, I missed what happaned. I put the female back in the jar.

(8pm) Bubble nest was completed, female was released again.

(9.30pm) First attempt to embrace. Female got scared the first time and didn't want to repeat it. Male got frustrated and chased her furiously for about 20 seconds. The female managed to hide so I decided not to interfere. Lights out.

19/08 (8am) The bettas embraced. No eggs were released.

(10am) Successfull embrace with eggs being released and fertilised.

(3pm) Male started to furiously chase female. Female removed.

Now it's another waiting game.

Thank you ♡ this is my first go at breeding so I'm crossing my fingers for some good luck. Spawning is easy, keeping the fry alive is the real challenge.

This morning I panicked. Couldn't see any eggs in the nest but the male was still guarding it so I let him be. Now I'm back to see a few, my guess is he hid most of them under the bubble wrap. The nest is scatering slightly in the outskirts of the bubble wrap but growing under it. Will take pictures later and add.

21/08 (12.07am) - I see tiny tiny babies inside the eggs! Being overlooked by the proud, albeit exhausted, dad.

21/08 (9am) - Fry are still inside de eggs, visible with the naked eye. I have the sensation that not as many as before but might be just my paranoia.
