    Puzzling...

    Post by Nataliey on Fri Jun 17, 2011 6:36 am

    ...I went to feed my conditioned pair of blue bettas as i thought they where just NOT ready, so i let the female out as usual for her flirty swim with the male and too my suprise there are eggs in the chimney in with the female in a bubble nest...so im pretty puzzled in how they got in there as the coke bottle is too tall for the male to jump in and even back out.

    So i have more eggs from my HM blue female and my SD blue male how spawning happened i just dont know or when iv no clue!

    So as the female was out the chimney i put her back in the sorority and noticed Sky the male started munching at the eggs weather this means the eggs wherent fertilised i dont know but all the eggs iv known have fell to the bottom, but maybe the female dropped them and placed them in bubbles that where in her chimney (Sky had bubbles all over the tank so this is possible i guess) iv really no idea! But Sky has been removed from the egg tank.

    But i suppose il see in a few days!

    Sometimes females will drop their eggs when they are "over ripe" and make a nest to put them in. They are usually the ones that are good helpers at picking up eggs after wrapping and putting them in the nest right along with the male and even tending the nest in the case where the male does not. I doubt that the ones she was taking care of in the chimney were fertile.

    I would expect the same as chard, female is overready so dropping eggs,

    if male has a nest and looks interested enough I'd try them for an hour or two, if not likely to spawn I'd use a temp female in chimney to get him to build while keeping other eggy girl isolated from any other fish contact then try in 2-6 days later.

    your girl wants to spawn but you need the male in the mood.

    The male is interested he's just a little rough with the girls, the only other thing i could think of is when i let them out together the day before he's spawned with her iv missed it and iv just put her back in the chimney, but im going to leave the eggs for now and i guess il really find out in a few days.

    But i think also that they are unfertile.
