Fry, fry's and more Fries lol

Okay, I got everything under control. My fry's are doing good. I am going to feed them BBS tomorrow. And I ordered some MWs on aquabid. What is the next step I should take to help the fry's?
Thank you

Keep the tank CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN, temperature in the 82-84 region, and be careful not to overfeed. ;)

You are now the #1 threat to their life. The tank must be perfectly clean and food always around. And one more thing... leave them alone unless you're feeding or changing water. The more you mess with them the more likely they will die. The next two weeks are critical.

That said. They need daily water changes. You can not skimp on this or you will stunt them. Fry release a growth hormone, and the bigger ones release more of it - it is to prevent other fry from getting bigger (bigger food competition) and to ensure they live and thrive.

Keep the water very warm for optimal growth. Around 84-86 if you can manage it.

Food, food and more food. Feed at least 3x a day, more if you can. And of course try not to overfeed at any one feeding - but this is also where the daily water changes come in. You can get away with not siphoning the bottom as for a few weeks, as long as you change at least 50-75% of the water daily.

Thanks for reminding me. If you don't know what to do next, you shouldn't be breeding bettas. It's hard enough raising them with proper knowledge. Asking along the way is not the way to go. You should have read everything possible over many months before even buying supplies.

We are honestly not trying to be rude, harsh, gang up on you, or whatever. It's just that breeding is not something you can just wing your way through. If you wanted to bring all those lives into the world, that's fine, but at least know the basics of what you need to do first ya know? Think of it like a quiz at school - you should study up to make a good grade right? It's the same with betta breeding, or really, any animal keeping in general. You should know what your doing before you jump into it. And like bahamut said, there are AWESOME stickies at the top of the breeding forum.
