quick question

I'm not gonna breed or anything but this got me curious,

I read people saying you have to take the female out after they have the eggs and everything and even that the male would take care of the eggs for a day...

My question is,

Do male bettas makes like a "good father role"? :V

Like taking care of the fry and all?

Cus I never heard about taking the male out, but I never actually bothered to look about it. =X

Normally you want to leave the male with his eggs/fry at least until they are free swimming....normally Bettas are great fathers, however, some can be egg/fry eaters and the eggs have to be artificially hatched...the longer you can leave the male with his brood the better.....and this is half the fun/interest when spawning this species...the interaction between father and offspring...very cool to watch....IMO/E......
