    Those are PERFECT! I use infusoria and brine shrimp but micros are reccomended for beginners.

    Some spawns are gentle and some really beat each other up so just watch them :)

    If he really damages her remove them. After the first bite she will run for her life. She will go hide from time to time. Then she will come out and show sumissiveness to the male. Then spawning usually occurs.

    BTW do you have live food?

    It depends on the betta. My males won't build a nest unless they can chase the female. The male I've been using (to increase color and introduce new genes) has never shreded a female but wasn't building a nest unless she was in the tank. These are "too smart" males. Meaning these males know the female is not in the tank with him so they won't build a nest. "Dumb males" are different. These are inbred males (usually) who will build the nest and wait for you to release her. Then there are "lazy males" who won't build a nest but will tend the eggs and fry. These are the best fathers :)


    After spawning females must be removed. The male tends the nest and eggs (but first timers usually eat some or all). Then the fry hatch and hang tail down in the nest. At this time they feed off their yolk sac. About three days after hatching the fry become "free swimming". This means they start swimming around and stop hanging from the nest. At this time you need to remove the male.
