This is just a post about what can go wrong when trying to breed, specifically with my betta's.
I'm writing this because most times, those of us who have sucessfully bred these wonderfull fish (and other species for that matter), tend to downplay it somewhat, especially from the point of view of some one new to it all, I know this to be true, because I am speaking from experience.

It is easier nowedays with the internet being vastly more acessible to more and more of us, and there is a wealth of information available to all of us, but things still can, and do go wrong, even when you have the right water peramaters, correct temperature, great conditioning, soft lighting, Barry White doing his whale wispering in the background, still no guarantees.

So here are a couple of examples of whats gone wrong with my attempts.

I've had a male who was all gung-ho, huge bubble nest, playing massive attention to the female, all good to go....untill the female was released, then he forgot all about the nest, so when they started spawning later, there was almost no nest at all, and then he also completely ignored the eggs after the spawning embrace, so when the female came around, she happilly went and at them off the bottom of the tank.

I have also had a pair that have spawned together befopre without any problems, suddenly decide they were not the least but interested in each other.

I had a pair of albino paradise fish that sawned in my community tank the day before I got back from a few days away, and I was completely unprepared for it, as a result, out of the 80 odd eggs that hatched, only one single little tough fish made it, and is now a beautifull adult. However I have since ensured i have a constant supply of green water, as well as some other foods which are smaller than micro-worms, thanks to Barries for those by the way cheers

There are many othe rthings which have gone wrong, the important thing is to not get disheartened, keep trying, ask for help from those who have knowledge or experience to share, try different techniques, and remember, sometimes, regardless of what you do or don't do, some fish just don't read the instruction manuals Smile
