I'm sorry I must had been confused, my fry hatched thursday and became free swimming on memorial day. Ihave about 200 little pigs, they are eating micro baby fish food. I'll send pics when they get a little bigger, right now they are as big as a grain of salt, lol

They won't eat that food... especially when they are this young. Once again, what size is your tank and have you done your research?

Baby bettas cannot eat what adults eat. It has to be live food like micro worms or vinegar eels.

Ihave that tank (for once its not used for a betta) it's only 1 gallon. Way to small, I reccomend at least 2 gallons for the breeding yank.

Yah I guess they are too small to see in that picture, is the bubblenest gone already? Do you still have the father in or did you remove him. Cant wait to see pictures, I really doubt they will eat the baby fish food, what I would do if i were you is go to the store and see if they have any microworm cultures already running you might get lucky. If not I would probably try to use egg yolk it would probably work better than the processed food. Then if you can get your hands on some bbs you could feed that about day 5 frozen bbs might work if you cant get live.

Like Ion said! You need to find another source of food for your fry....And you will be needing to move then=m to a grow out tank when they are 3 weeks
