Could I start feeding before I remove the male? Cause some are free swimming while others are not yet.

Also, my delta tailed mail is building a nice bubble nest in a properly set up spawning tank and my halfmoon female is showing what I think are bars. She's a light cooler female, but I think that's what it is. She is also flaring at the male while he's building.

Yes you can feed the fry while the male is still in there.

ok cool :)
also, the fry are all free swimming, but are all chillin at the top of the tank. some under the remains of the bubble nest, and others just...at the top.
Is that normal? I always thought they would be more tempted to go to the bottom? I'm worried cause most of the food sinks

Try using an air pump set to minimum and see if they will submerge. or do a partial wc.

i added a sponge filter and it bubbles about as much as an airstone on minimum/maybe medium would. While doing so, it messed up the males bubble nest. I removed the male, cause i'm pretty sure it was him keeping them at the top, grabbing and spitting back up and that dared to swim down. Now they are all swimming around and enjoying some rotifers. :)

I suggest getting a moss ball or two because they work amazing for the fry to have Infusoria to eat when they are still that small. You will see them all crowd around the moss balls.
