I'm starting this thread to get everyone's opinions on the subject of "how long to leave a female in the breeding tank if they haven't yet spawned"

I've read some people leave her in 3 days max while other says longer.

When do you say damn it all to heck and take her out and recondition the pair?

Please if everyone can chime in and let's get a concensus going.

Hi, 1-3 days would be a good max for how long to leave your female in. If you're still seeing normal spawning behaviors like flaring/dancing, nest building, and chasing, I would probably leave them in. Some pairs take longer to court and mate. If they're fighting, definitely remove the female. If your bettas are ignoring each other, maybe try reconditioning? Sometimes a few of my pairs simply refuse to mate! Hope your pair spawns soon and gives you a beautiful batch. Good luck!
