    Hey, so yesterday I put my male and female in a 5 gallon tank with a heater, the male built a small bubble nest and then today I released the female out of the jar and they started chasing and fighting and what not, now they are just sitting there, not doing anything at all, it's been 2 and a half hours since I released the female in there, is it completely normal?

    Did you get the bettas from the pet store? Most of the time, those are too old to breed.

    Yeah I did about a week ago, they seemed rather small at first, but they grew in a week

    He also destroyed his bubble best like 20 min ago and he is starting to build a new one, why would he do that?

    Sometimes they just do that. Fish are weird. I had one that built a bubblenest as soon as he saw the female, then destroyed it when I released her, then built another one and destroyed it when their spawn failed. Rinse and repeat.

    Like I said, fish are weird.

    Yeah, and unfortunately they don't spawn on demand, often don't get around to it the first day, or even the second, I usually separate them before the 3rd day though, so often they just don't spawn for no apparent reason.
