The formosa in the picture looks a bit... out of it. I keep them, and usually the fins are a bit more spread out. Could she be sick? (I think it's a she, cause I don't see a long gonopodium)

You probably already know this, but just in case- the females give birth every couple of days, and fry rarely get eaten by the parents. So you'll have a nice colony in no time unless you give a few away! :) (or you could use them as feeders...but that makes me sad...)

Hmm really? I don't really want overpopulation, so I'm leaving the fry to their own devices...

The parents swim with out stretched fins. The females are heavily overfed because they take all the food and the males are contantly trying to court the females.. lol

Does that sound normal?
I didnt do much research on water temperature, so it's at 78.

if it gets out of hand, I will feed what I can to the bettas...

Sounds pretty normal to me! :) They're little piggies for sure. Don't worry about the temp, they can handle a pretty wide range. Seeing as they normally live in Florida lakes & the small streams & ditches connected, they're pretty hardy. :)
