Ok. I am on attempt number 2 of trying to breed a pair of my bettas. I have them in the breeder tank. Both eat high protein foods regularly. I put male in first and gave him the tank for 24 hrs to claim territory. I now have female floating in a clear container. The both seem very interested in each other at first. They flare and wiggle dance. She has an ovipositor and breeding stripes and is appears very willing. He doesn't bubble nest. I've got still water, floating plants, but no nest. Should I keep her cupped for a few days and hope he makes one? I don't understand why he appears interested and then won't make a nest.
