    Oh, okay. So, next time I will just throw Thai in to take care of them haha. Well, my male ate the rest of the eggs, and my other conditioned female died, and I have no clue why. She was perfectly health a few days ago, but when I put her in the hurricane jar she flared at him for the first hour, then was uninterested. So I listened to a friend of mine who is experieanced in betta, and she said to put her in with a more aggressive male, so I did. She was in a hurricane jar, by the way. And when I woke up she was dead D:

    Thanks so much for the help! Love your avi, by the way. He is a stunner!

    Hey, so you posted a message for me and here is what i have to say. I have experienced egg-eaters before as well and i have tried to respawn them and again they would eat the eggs, even if i conditioned them for a much longer period of time, but i really want that betta's genes so i have done this, i put the male in (egg eater) and he usually squeezes out the eggs and places them in the nest, and i wait till they are completely dont then i remove the male and place another well conditioned male in to take care of the eggs and that usually works, i have only had this not work once so it should work for you. Hope this helps!

    Hey, I have a question. What do you do with egg eaters? And do you know what causes it? I just recently spawned my pair, and the male ate almost all of the eggs. Would he do this in the future, if I ever spawn him again? Thanks for your time :)
