    And here we go 27.6 Baby pics

    Post by MandyD on Sun Jun 06, 2010 7:45 am

    Right Im already to go, fish in place, they were already tarting in the split tank so decided to just go for it since these two were looking pretty compatible. They have been in the breeding tank now since this morning, and there is plenty of flaring going on from the male, the female is just sitting there looking pretty. No nest building as of yet, so just hope he hasnt built himself out after the superb nest he built the other day!

    Not brilliant pics but this is the male:



    And this is the female:



    Wish me luck!

    Not yet, just letting them settle in today and trying not to disturb them too much. Did feed them earlier, and there was nothing then. He has an almond leaf and some polysterene in there so couple of things to use! And I know he wants her coz he built a nest for her before lol

    Try using bubble wrap it gets them going.

    How long did you leave the boy in alone before putting the girl in?

    Good luck!

    He had about an hour before I added the female. I do have the marble male that would go good with her too, how long should I give them before swapping males? Not as easy as it looks is it? lol

    Aww thought so, shame they would have made a nice pair. BUt sure the marble male will be just as nice. Have just done water change and added fresh IAL for him, so may just give them one more night, then if nothing still will swap males tomorrow night Very Happy x

    Feel a little sad now as well as I would have loved to have bred Joseph - He was such a stunner!

    Try Storms suggestion with a mirror next to where he would build a nest first before giving up on him. I know how impatient we can be but putting her with a different male you will be starting all over again. Then again that's all it takes sometimes. I've had a female tear up a male and I put her in with another one and spawn the next day. I have been breeding Betta's off and on for 40 years and by no means have it down to anything close to an exact science.

    you could probably do with letting the guy get used to the home before adding the female.

    I give my boys 2 days alone in the tank then add the female in the tub for at least 2 days
