Ok so I was gone for a little bit and this morning I was checking on my bettas to make sure they were ok. When I looked in Cheng's tank I see she has built a bubble nest and there are eggs in it! The reason I am confused is because without a male, how did she build the bubble nest and get the eggs in?

No point in moving them. They weren't fertilized in the first place.

That's the thing MisterVamp, if you've read some of my previous posts, I was stupid enough to keep a female and male together before, so the eggs might be fertilized! Is there anyway to tell?

Male and female must embrace for the eggs to be fertilized.

Females often build nests and drop the eggs and tend to them for a few days then eat them. For the eggs to actually produce fry the spawning process must occur.

Eggs hatch in 24 hours usually. They are not fertilized.

Remove them now.

The eggs are NOT fertile. NEVER put two bettas together unless you know what you're doing.

In order for the eggs to be fertilized, the male and female have to be together in order to fertilize the eggs. The male has to wrap the female in order to fertilize the eggs. From what you've posted, it doesn't seem that the two were together to actually fertilize the eggs.

No offense but if you did not know the eggs weren't fertilized then you probably shouldn't be breeding bettas... you'll just end up with dead fry.
