Hey Everyone, I'm a new member here.. I was wondering if my betta is carrying eggs and how come she doesn't have vertical stripes.. most of my females would develop stripes by the time their stomach is that huge. I've been letting my male and female betta see each other for 3 to 4 days now and 30 minutes each day. He even built a bubble nest too! She is not flaring back but tries to swim to him when he comes close sometimes.
