View Full Version : male/female betta

ok well i put my 2 betta fish together (1 male 1female) and well they are ignoring each other or the male is attacking the female. Like the male wont even let the female check out his bubble nest. And well i think that this is odd behaviour. The male looked interested in her when she was in the tank beside him and now he wants nothing to do with her. She has the vertical bars, her white tube is showing. Well she has all of the symptoms of wanting to spawn and the male has a nice bubble nest made but wont let the female near it. I have fed them nicley for the last couple of days. This included: brine shrimp (frozen), blood worms (frozen), betta flakes which includes little pieces of worms and good stuff like that.
I don't know what i am doing wrong but could you give me some helpful advice and a couple of tips????
