I'm a little bit too excited...

My bettas just spawned! Eeeeeeee, I'm estatic. The eggs seriously are microscopic... It's hard to tell how long they've been at it, I just woke up and saw the end of an embrace. It's such a beautiful thing! Now, I'm starting to get nervious about the fry and keeping them alive....

But... I got this. :D

If I didn't make it completely obvious, this is my first spawning.

Have you ordered any foods for the fry? The fry are seriously small when they first hatch. At first they will eat insuforia that is already in the tank, but once that's gone, you will have to feed them. *Best of luck*

I'm ordering some from a member on here.

Edit: I have a fish pond at my mom's house that doesn't have fish in it anymore and it's got a pretty huge stock of mosquito larva too. :]

Also, would it be okay to put a snail of some sort in the spawning tank to help clean up? I couldn't find a helpful answer on google, plus I trust you guys more. :]

Yes you can.But some snails make a lot of poop,so be sure to clean the tank.

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.

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!!

should I wait until the fry are a certain age? I just figured it would be easier to turkey baster out poop rather than bits and pieces of uneaten food.

So...for whatever reason my betta's nest has failed. There are hundreds of eggs laying on the bottom of the tank. He is working constantly to put the eggs back, but as soon as he gets five in, his tail hits a bubble and ten more drop out... :[

What does this mean for the fate of my fry?

It will still be ok if you don't make any current even a little like the wind blowing.If your bettas are conditioned well,your male will pick up the eggs in no time.Mine succeeded the next day.I usually siphon it at 1 week old.
