Well i have been conditioning the pair for 5 days now Including today. I just now put the two in the tank and they are flaring their butts off lol. Dont worry neptune, (the female) isnt really in, in the tank, she is In a Hurricane Glass in the tank. He is exploring like he never explored before and he is gorgeous when he flares!!

Also he only has half of a beard or (Operculum). His "Beard" is deformed, because only half of it comes out. Although that doesn't stop him from Flaring and opening his mouth:).

Well I have so many pictures to show you guys/gals, But im currently in the process of uploading, then downloading them into the computer so it might take a while!!

But i promise i will have them up In about 45 minutes or so to maybe if im unlucky to a hour!!

So bare with me!!

That's true. It all depends if it's a genetic deformity or if something happened to him...:S

Hmm I'm pretty sure it's just bad water quality problem. See sometimes bettas have such bad water they can't flare fully and end up like that forver. Even now that he's in clean water it my never come fully out.

Can someone please help!!!!!

Please!!

Well i just released the female this morning at around 9:00 this morning and well he was flaring and she was running away from him for a long time. Until it seemed like she said okay thats it im not taking anymore!

So now she is beating him up and tearing his fins! so what do i do? He is sitting on the op of the water and instead of her hiding in the plants he is and he is swimming very slow away from her. Also shes faster because she doesn't have to carry long fins around and he hasn't built a bubblenest !!Im very worried!!

Is there something i can do?

Yes but one minute she is swimming fast away and the next she is tearing him apart!!

Well i guess i didnt expect that she was going to beat him up. i thought it was the other way around!!

When i went in the room she came up to the front glass and just stared at me. lol

Meanwhile he is still in the back just staying in one spot but occasionally going under the cup.

Spawning update!!

Update if anyone cares anymore:-/ : Well they have finally calmed down and are looking at each other. Also they are very peaceful together! He is just following her as she swims around!

He has been making very tiny bubbles here and there but never really worked on it! They are currently under the cup and he is trying to make bubbles as she watches him and she is swimming back and forth waiting til hes done.

Tiberius IMO is just waiting for her to be ready so he can just embrace with her!

I dont think hes making a bubblenest until the eggs starts coming out! They are just swimming in circles around each other!!

Now does anyone want any pictures?
