She's had bars for a week now. I figured it was time for her to breed.

It's funny, she put most of the eggs in the nest. I guess Thai boys dont like to do that much work.

I just made a grave discovery. Thai boy ate all the eggs.

Hello FlyFrod,

Sorry to hear the boy ate the eggs. You have some beautiful Bettas! Best wishes for the next time!

Don't move anything. Sometimes there are a few eggs there that you can't see. Wait about four days before taking it apart.

No he ate everything. He even destroyed the nest. I guess he didn't want to be a dad. How long should I wait to try and breed the female again?

Condition them both really good for about two to three weeks with frozen bloodworms and BBS.

Sometimes the males are inexperianced and eat the eggs, sometimes something spooks them and they "panic" as well...

I know it happens but it still sucks. He wasn't acting right from the time they started spawning. I should have known something was going to happen.

He really didn't put many eggs in the nest. The female picked up most of them. He just kept his nose in the nest when they weren't in an embrace. When they were done he left the nest.

I have had a few males do that..it is so frustrating! But one of them, the multi male I got from MM, ate the first 3 spawns within 12 hours, the 4th at around the 24 hour mark and this last one he only ate half of...the other half hatched out wonderfully... I think what happened was he hadn't gotten the hang of fertilizing them right! I think he was eating bad eggs...which would be why this last spawn he only ate half of them...the other half were good and fertile!
