Artificially Hatching Eggs


Recommended Posts

I used to breed bettas for show a while back, and the best advice I can give is keep trying, eventually you will succeed. Some males seem to be egg eaters while others are good dads.

Another thing that can increase the chance of eggs being eaten is disturbance or anything that makes the male concerned in some way. From a survival point of view it is better to eat the eggs yourself and get the nutrition to breed again than lose the eggs to a predator. While it appears irrational to us, the male might perceive something in his environment as a threat.

Keep trying, you will have baby bettas eventually!
