Calm down and take a few deep breaths. Lol You're getting some good advice here. You just answered my question about what you were feeding the fry in your other thread so you can disregard it. Lol

First off, I would congratulate you on making it this far since many first time breeders don't get nearly as far as you have. But it seems everything you're "panicking" about on your various other threads (including this one) have all been descriptions of NORMAL betta breeding activity that are easily learned if you would've just read or watched some videos.

I wouldn't bother the male right now. Let him do his thing. Don't intervene until the fry are free swimming. The more you bother him (esp him being a virgin) the more he will screw it up. Again, all of this is stuff you can easily have found online or other websites about betta fatherhood.

okay thanks for the tip i won't hatch the brine shrimp just yet.

i did do some research, I read some blogs and websites and purchased a book but READING it and seeing it actually happen are two different things, i just got a little bit hyper i know.

but it seems to be going smoothly for now. i'll just have to wait until the start free swimming then take the male out and then i'll be able to see whether the baby betta on the bottom are dead or just not able to swim yet.

and thanks everyone for all the great advice.

lol I can say it is different from reading to breeding.. I researched for months before attempting to breed and I felt like I forgot everything once I actually got them to breed lol.
