Cool

You don't have to feed them until they are free swimming. And then not for a couple of days... I give mine a small amount of mw when they are free swimming just in case they want a snack, but they still have much of their egg yoke sac still feeding on that.

Are you dealing with this problem now?
You don't need to feed the fry until they are free swimming. Even then, you wouldn't need to for a couple of days if you prepared your water with some infusoria.

Well, I feed them as much as they will eat. When first free swimming after a few days I add a touch of micro worms.

After a week or so of free swimming I will add some live baby brine shrimp.

If you add too many, just be prepared to vacum them up... You'll learn eventually how much they will eat.

Take a look at this article Betta Breeding Basics I've always thought it's good info for beginers.
For raising fry, look at this page: http://bettysplendens.com/articles/c....imp?catid=856
