good, I hope they'll be alright. I was gone for the day and left all the lights on for him and when I got home he had moved his bubble wrap from the front left corner to the middle in the back. (it's really funny to watch him move it) It's closer to the heater. He also moved all the eggs that were on the bottom of the tank to the spot under the nest too. He's not trying like a mad man to put them back in the bubble nest anymore though. :/ but I noticed he swims really close to them and sort of "vents" them. I read that he does that to keep away any fungal infections, I wonder if they'll still be okay at the bottom? What causes them to not be able to hatch at the bottom of the tank? (Or do they?)

Cool! Guys I Have A Question,Is The New Hatch Baby Beta Is Too Small,How Can I Clean There Tank? Also Changing The Water?? You have to siphon the tank,be careful because the fry are weak and not strong enough to withstand the force.You can see the fry at swimming stage.

Can I Feed My Newly Hatch beta Fish with daphne?
Yes,they can eat daphnia but after 2 weeks,feed them bbs.Bbs have high protein for growing fry.
I normally start to clean the tank at 1 or 2 weeks old.You can put some live plants to keep the nitrates down.

The kindness one does for an animal may not change the world........but,it will change the world for that one animal.Stop animal cruelty!!

Congrats on the newly hatched babies!! Can't wait to see pics, what type of betta's did you spawn? CT?

Just because I'm in a cup, does not mean to pass me up, all day long I sit and stare wishing you would take me there. To your home to set me free, in a tank would mean worlds to me. I'll be your friend and loving pet, buying me wont bring regret. I'm just a Betta can't you see, all I ask is you could too love me - CandiceMM

No, they're halfmoons. Ironic, right? Haha. They're 2 days old right now, and they're laying at the bottom of the tank. :/ I don't know if they will survive like that. I think dad is eating them...or he could be eating the unhatched/dead ones. I can't see them very well, he decided to move the nest/fry away from the front of the glass. I guess he thought I was being too nosey. :P

Well...Dad ate everybody. :( I've got 12 babies left. So I took him out and I'm hoping they'll do okay on their own...

Maybe I should have left Dad in to do his job. I may be responsible for killing my fry. :/ I feel terrible...

Don't second guess yourself. If he was eating the fry, there could have been something wrong with them, or he was just a bad father. Sometimes you just never know.

Sorry about your spawn.

If male is tending to fry, most often he is not eating them..... I mean he is not psychotic. He might be eating the weaker ones.... which in this case might have been most of them. There's nothing you could have done to save the fry. By the looks of it, they were weak from the start. Things like this happens.

If you plan on breeding him again, pair him to a different female or vise versa, breed the previous female to a different male.

Good luck in the future.
