2 weeks. I could add brine shrimp...
Atison's Betta Pro and bloodworms.
I'm feeding them well, keeping the water temperature up, and everything I should be...
But all my males won't build nests.
My friend just lost her clownfish- they were all cut up.
Please, please, PLEASE, when you buy decorations, feel the inside where the fish can sometimes swim to make sure that there are no jagged...
She's also lost most of her colour, all she really has left is stress stripes.
Should I start her on Maracyn Two?
This is wilimina. She can't swim well at all now, so the water is very shallow, but can you see that weird curve?
Any chance she could just have an infection of her swim bladder?
I woke up this morning to find that my female betta, Wilimina, is swimming near the top of her tank, but she's kind of on her side... like she's tipped over, but she keeps trying to swim. Almost a 45...
And no, it's not saving money by switching to Geico.
I'm raising the fry myself- they hatched yesterday, and so far, seem to be doing well.

Well, the female took care of the eggs for almost 7 hours, obsessively bringing the ones that had fallen up to the top...
and then decided she would rather eat them then raise them.

The female is bringing all the eggs up to the top and making sure that they don't fall. Like, she's doing an AMAZING job. Would it be too far fetched to try and leave the female in there instead of...

yep. i've got an insuforia culture. it's not the food i'm worried about...
but if this attempt doesn't work out, do you think that the next time i try to breed them the male will pay attention?

Is there any chance that the female could raise the eggs?
11-23-2007, 08:35 PM
but i can still use the same pair, right? if this attempt doesn't work?
hang on, it looks like she's putting them in the nest now, but he's still ignoring them
11-23-2007, 08:27 PM
Yeah, I've been trying to breed forever.
but he's ignoring the eggs completely.
has this ever happened to you? where the female just gobbles them up?
11-23-2007, 08:22 PM
Oh yeah, there's a huge nest.
and the male keeps working on it? idk, but he's not paying attention to the eggs when they fall.
11-23-2007, 08:16 PM
she just laid about 3 or 4 eggs and then ate them.
11-23-2007, 08:05 PM
They're breeding, hugging and everything
but I'm not seeing any eggs
what should i do? Wait it out??
I have 3 females that I tried to house together.
They decided they would rather fight.
Any tips? Or should I just keep em separate?
I'm worried because I bought her from the same place as Wilford, and as I said, she's acting the way Wilford did before he died. My other fish are doing FINE. same tank setup...everything....
She's been in the same tank since I got her...water is filtered, tank was cycled...argg I wish I could give you more information...
Oh, and she's not swimming around as much as she used to. Not too long ago, she was really active. Now she's doing the same thing Wilford did, just sitting at the top in one corner.
Nope, nothing's changed. Water's good and warm, nice and clean.
After my male died, I started her on the Splendid Betta remedy, just to make sure that whatever was wrong with Wilford wasn't wrong...
I know you're all sick of me by now, and maybe my freaking out is unwarrented, but...
Now Wilimina has stopped eating.
She'll take food into her mouth then spit it back out, including blood...
After the way it has been acting, I knew something was up, so I was sad but not surprised to find a dead fish waiting for me.
Oddly enough, I'd had a wierd feeling today and bought a new male.
