There are at least 6 that are missing ventrals. When I breed again I will definatly use shrimp instead of micro worms

What about microworms cause missing ventral fins?

it's more that the microworms get the babies to stay on the bottom of the tank for long periods eating because mw don't stay in the water column long. The bacteria affecting the ventrals already exists in the tank but gets more concentrated with the worms dying on the bottom and the difficulty in cleaning a fry tank. The result is that the bacteria builds up and the ventrals seem to dissolve.

2 girls, 2 boys, 11 betta albimarginatas adults +fry, 8 betta macrostoma juvies and I think I'm running out of tank space!
