Yeah I would expect a high degree of variation of your fry with those genetics.

I have Giant duckweed, java moss, hornwart, Vinegar eels and Microworms ready to go. Looks good!

He has moved his nest out from under the cup and into the plants. Most of the fry are either clinging on the plants or just under then nest. It looks like some are trying to swim but more like they are having spams. I'm thinking ill remove him when I he back from school and start my fist feeding.... Tonight or tomorrow???

That should work fine. They don't need much to start and no need to foul your water with overfeeding. You will also want to start adding 1g of de-chlor water every day. Remove water via an airstone and airline draining into a bucket. When the fry get bigger you can start syphoning the bottom very carefully. Good luck.

Be careful not to add to much water at a time... They are very sensitive to parameter changes at this young stage. To add the water reverse siphon it in with airline and an air valve/other flow control method. Aim for one drip per second... Yes, they really are that sensitive at this stage.

Matt is correct. Exact same temperature and very slowly. The sensitivity at this stage is very high. Most fry are lost in 1st 2 weeks due to sudden change in params.

I didn't even add water until they were at one week and some don't until they are two weeks old. As long as you are extremely careful and go slow they should be fine.
