View Full Version : Pregnant Crown tail ?

Hello all, I just noticed tonight that I think I have pregnant Crowntail. I also have a much larger half-moon but they were only housed together maybe less than half an hour once so it's highly unlikely that they bred. I see what I think is a maybe 1/16 inch white spot where her abdomen is expanded. So if she's pregnant I think she already was when I bought her from my LFS. My question is this-if she gives birth, what do I do with the fry since the male is housed separately from her and she has no bubble nest in her tank ?

Pregnant Crowntail-any suggestions?

Maybe add some floating plant material or breeding mop?

I really have no clue, TBH

If you have a female and a male. The white spot indicates that she is filled with eggs. Bettas do not become pregnant and then have eggs. The female makes eggs in her body and then pushes them out whenever the male fertilizes them. So if you see a little egg poking out it is probably because she was ready to breed but did not. Hope that helps :)
