As soon as the male has put all the eggs in the bubble nest.

From a female Betta. Then the male Betta fertilizes them when they breed together.

A female Betta can only lay her eggs when she is cuddled/embraced under a bubble nest by the male Betta. She can not lay eggs by herself.

i think you should let the female betta take care of its own eggs

Actually, with bettas it's the male that cared for the bubble nest rather than the female. You should leave the male with the nest and separate the female.

The female Betta does not take care of the eggs. She doesn't because she will eat them and she has no interest for them.The father Betta protects and cleans the eggs until they have hatched.

A female Betta splendens will usually lay anywhere from 50 to 1,000 eggs.

Yes they will . They fight due to territory having an intruder . If you want a female betta to get pregnant , you should put them in a separate tank so they will not have any territory . After the female have her eggs , put the male and the female back into their original tank (separate) . Hope that I have helped!

The only thing that will encourage a female Betta to release her eggs is a male Betta with a proper nest.

the female betta fish are released from a vent while a male embraces her

Female betta fish lay eggs. If the female has vertical stripes that stand out, she is going to lay her eggs soon.

No, the male betta makes the bubble nest the female gives the eggs.

betta fry are not born .they hatch from eggs laid by the female which the male fertilizes.

No! It is in fact the males(every species)that fertilize the eggs. The females only produce eggs.

the male betta does, the female just swims away.

The amount of eggs they can lay at once varies.

Because Female betta fish lack the parenting instincts males do. Most females have just enough to help the male put the eggs in the nest.

Yes. The female will start trying to eat the eggs, and the male will attack her to defend them. Take her out as soon as they're done.

no. the male betta just cares for the eggs. the male betta does somthing to the female called an embrace, he basicly hugs the eggs out of her than he kills the female or his just fights with her until she leaves him alone. then he cares for the eggs until hatching.

usally femal betas will lay eggs and they`re smarter!!

Your betta fish may have been impregnated before you got her.

Well Betta breeding is tricky, some betta keepers are "ok" but others are NOT, your betta keeper must have a seperater to separate the male from the female. You must do this so the male can get use to the look of the female.. After 1-2 days put the female in with the male.. And watch them, if they fight then you will have to separate them again.

Yes my female betta did lay egg's,the male picked them up with his mouth and put the eggs in the bubble nest.them i removed the female and male betta stayed,after the eggs hatch,after a day and a half i took the male out of the fish tank and the baby's were by therem self's

Male Bettas can live with female Betta fish except when they have laid eggs. Male Betta fish should not be placed in the same aquarium as another male Betta.

He may be bored! Get a female Betta fish, but keep them in separate tanks!

No. A male Betta is needed to spawn out the female and fertilise her eggs.
