I had been conditioning my female HM betta for breeding. I placed her in the breeding tank (with a divider) to introduce to my male betta for approximately 24hrs before releasing her. She indicated stripes and everything within 2-3hrs. I have been letting them see one another for 3-5hrs a day for about a week. They've been fed really well and they have successfully paired before, however, the first time the father ate all his eggs. The issue is within those 2-3hrs she released some of her eggs so I quickly released her into the breeding tank and took out the unfertilized eggs to prevent rotting. Now the female seems like she doesn't wanna breed, it's been 8-10hrs should I wait a bit longer? She's currently staying in the corner of the tank away from the nest but it doesn't seem like she released anymore eggs as she seems super eggy still. The male is constantly flaring while making a nest. Thank you for any advice!
