Right now nothing because I seperated them early yesterday when my male started looking tired/sickly, I dont know what to do anymore, right now they are back in their original tank and I started a new conditioning regiment with brine shrimp to shape up the male.

Ohh and I do have a heater. I really wish this was as easy in reality as it is in theory.

I prefer a barely bubbling corner filter, but I agree a filter is not necessary.

The answer is they cant.
Fry have very low stamina when they are young and will lost all energy if they tried to swim that high.
As they grow you can add water and clean as normal....
Ok, the water level shouldn't be too high, but it can be from 3-12 inches, I've done it before, still the water level should be 3-12 inches, I wouldn't do this to often, I've done it about 3 times with no problem.

10 pet bettas, 7 spawns (beginner breeder), not easy :P

You dont need to condition them anymore since you just seperated them yesturday right? Who told you to do this??
I think he will be fine.
Does he have a fat belly and a entergetic attitude??
If the boy is ready.
I am not saying to stop feeding him his treats.
But you dont have to start all over.....

Ok, I decided maybe the new short water level will help and reintroduced them. I will try leaving them longer this time in hopes it will work.
