I see a fry in the picture! Just near daddy's dorsal. lol

You're expecting blue cambodians, correct? Mostly, I presume.

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

Okay, hopefully they all reach adulthood! :)
Update:
I just freaked out for a minute when I checked on the tank 10 minutes ago. It's a pretty small spawn and when I looked at the nest, I only a saw a few fry bobbing up and down. I watched the dad pick up one of the fry and didn't spit it back out, so I thought he was eating them :O A minute later, he spit out like 10-ish fry.

Update:
It has been 4.5 days now and the temperatures at 86 (Shouldn't they all be free swimming by now?). I only see 2 fry free swimming and the rest are still hopping about. So frustrating, I don't know what's wrong D:

Hm.. Give them 3 more days. Maybe raise the temperature and test the water? I am no ways a breeder, but I think this will help. Did you take Dada out?

Keep it at 86. You don't want to raise it much higher then that. What are the parameters?

The ammonia is still high at .5 ppm, I've trying to slowly drip in water treated with prime, so I don't know if the readings are ammonia or ammonium. My tap water already has .25 to .5 ppm. The ph is also quite high at 7.6-7.8. Since they are having swim bladder problems, I've read that bacteria can cause it. The bottom of the tank is quite dirty, but I don't know from what. I have java moss a few leaves of duck weed in there.
Yep, I took the dad out because the nest fell apart and he wasn't picking up fry anymore, he was just ignoring them.

The fry are almost 2 weeks old now. Unfortunately, I only have 2 fry left. They were the only 2 that ever reached the free swimming stage. I am keeping them in a floating cup since its so hard to find fry in a 10 gallon tank. They have some duckweed and some java moss with them in the cup. One of them is almost 2 times the size of the other. He or "it" likes to hang out at the bottom more, while the other one likes the top. They are active and seem to be growing well. It's surprising how fast they grow! I am currently doing 50% water changes everyday and will start 80% when the fry reach 2 weeks.
The pic is of the larger of the 2 fry, he's hiding behind the java moss:)
