is where i got the bucket instructions. And OFL on this site lets hers breed in buckets outside all summer. I cant' imagine what I'm doing wrong. Unless its just bugging them too much. the guy at the betta store never mentions water changes or if he leave the boy in or out.
I've let my guys spawn many times and only once didn't have eggs drop during the embracing. But something goes awry that night and the nests are gone the next day. My male blue devil ct has spawned the most times. I have video of him on youtube. How long would you give Mocha and Cocoa before you let them try again? I think they are the most complimentary in appearance. I'm thinking how awesome it would be if they had babies with her deep orange and his black edges and blue iridescence. Banana is a great spawner, though rougher on the girls than the others. I always leave the nest alone for over a week just in case i just cant see babies at first. For Banana's last time, someone said they take the boy out too and put an airline in the bucket to keep the water moving and prevent fungus. That didn't work for me either. Banana and lemon are in the bucket again now.
oh, i rambled -
I'll stop typing now. :D have you had Bettas or other kinds of fish very long?
