    i got 2 mature sponge filters i plan to put in there on low, and some anacharis, java moss, and water wisteria, hopefully to provide an alternative early food source. there is also a little algae in the breeding tank, if needed i could add more, the females tank is lit with lights and has quite a bit, today or tomorrow is clean up day for the tanks.

    I did use the cup with success last time in building the nest, so i think that would be a good idea, I'll have to look around for one

    Awesome, I'm having a little difficulty with him building the nest, he isn't really doing it, have to try the mirror trick or something

    UPDATE::::

    he started a bubble nest, i guess he didn't like that particular half of the styrofoam cup haha, if it gets big enough by tomorrow spawn mignt be start tomorrow afternoon

    ...hmm, i don't have a good nest builder.... When should i release the female? he probably has a tiny nest 2cm acrossed or so, but i thought i heard that he will constantly build the nest more through the spawn.

    @dustin: even bettas have preferences on how to build nests. maybe im being anthropomorphic but you should try putting him next to a "veteran" bubble nest builder. i've done that, and im my perspective it works. you have him next to the female right? a little visual motivation hahahaha.
