More news about the fry. I found like 6 fry that could not swim down it was really sad they were stuck at the top. I took a video.

But good news I am floating them in a cup in the tank. I was afraid that maybe their swim bladder was not developing right and I would have to cull. But I made up a gallon of Epsom salt water. I added it to their cup and most of them are all better and it's only been a few hours since I did that. Woohoo !

I will have to show a before and after video of the fry with the problem.

What other stuff can I start to feed them?

Try the hikari first bites. Floats at the top, supper tiny. That what I'm using for my " oops you bought a Preggo female Molly" fry and they love it. Never had betta fry before, so don't know how we'll it will work

The first bites is more of a flake food, so probly not the best for betta fry. I've also heard the vinager eels are good for betta fry. No idea where you can get them though. I've heard that if you can't find bbs you can just get some seamonkeys and grow those. My bettas loved it when my kids decided their seamonkeys needed to go into the betta tanks.

Wow they're big! Mine are about a 1/4 inch now, I got a really good pic of one of my babies last night that I need to post on my spawn log still. In your first pic, one looks like a white tadpole lol! I seriously can't wait to see their colors develop! It looks like their anal and dorsal fins are coming in! Or am I seeing things?

Most of the fry are blue and green/blue right now some are kind of more white then I have a few drownish ones. Can't wait to see what they become . I think my solids will have a full mask.

Yes we have fins! Here is a better photo of one fry.
