trouble breeding bettas
I let the contaner with the female in it float in the males tank. i waited like 1 to 1 1/2 hours and he didnt make a bubble nest son i decided to take her out and put her in the community tank. she is hiding under a decoration right now. Any tips?

Where did you get the bettas?
How long did you ready them before breeding (in seperate tanks)?
What are you feeding the bettas?
What are the parameters of the community tank?
Temperature of community tank?
How old are the bettas?
How big is the breeding tank?
Did you add anything for the male to use as an alcove for bubbles?

last night a tried again. I left her over night in the breeding tank. she jumped out of the container and into the tank. she was hiding at the bottom. i got her back into the container. he did make a small bubble nest. he still flares at her and charges at the container though.
the male 3 days. the female 1 day. Should I try conditioning them more.
