Aloha, I hope all is well. My betta spawned the morning of Sunday (05/20) and the eggs hatched late evening of Monday (05/21). I removed the female and she is recovering in a community aquarium with some neon tetras. The male seems to be a good father as he put all effort in picking up all the fry and put them back on the bubble nest. I read in some articles that in some point I have to remove the father to avoid the fry from being eaten, but in the same note I don't want to disturb him from rearing the fry. What is the best time to separate the father from the fry?
Here are some of my observations:
1. He constantly picks up the fry and put him back on the nest
2. Some of the fry that fallen swims back to the nest and some of them are having a hard time
3. The father constantly blows bubble in the nest
4. The father has not eaten since Sunday (05/20)
Any information will be greatly appreciated. Mahalo (Thank You)
