The size of the spawn is not determined by the size of the container.
That's why a lot of people prefer larger tanks for spawning, if you end up with 100s of fry your 2.5 gal will be overstocked even in the first few weeks.
Personally, I like using the 10gal because it goes from spawning to community without having to move the fry.

That all depends on the pair. It depends on how many eggs the female releases, how well the male takes care of the eggs, how strong the fry are when they hatch. All of these things determine how many fry will survive based on the fish.

As long as you do daily water changes, feed the fry properly, and make sure that they are all growing up healthy and strong then you should be able to keep all of the once that are meant to live alive.

Remember though, you have to be ready to dispose of any fry that have bent spines because there is no point letting them live if they will be in pain. It is better to put them out of their misery while they are still young, before you get overly attached.

Also, IMO 20 gallons is the growout minimum. You can get $20 clear steril tanks at most stores like target and walmart.

lol, depends on what he plans on doing with them. For instance if I still had my 100 gallon saltwater tank setup that housed Clown Triggers and Lion fish, I would offer to take all those betta's off your hand as well. Would save me on Feeder goldfish and guppy's,

If the fish's names are the thing that is holding you back from breeding, I believe you need to reach a higher level of maturity before you can even think of spawning and raising baby fish.

I have to agree with 1f2f and Mr vamp on this one...

You can't expect the fry to grow properly in a 2.5 gallon tank. I say 10 gallon minimum.
