Yeah there is a slight hue of red on some of the darker betta I am assuming its from the dad. Coppers have, at least I noticed, carry a lot of red in their background. You can see it in one of the photo's of one of the darker fry. The dark blue is whats surrounding it right now. Although some dark fry are showing no red at all, and the white ones are still white.

Oh goodness! I see what your talking about but i have no idea what it is. They are looking healthy so it doesnt seem to fit the usual stuff. Hang in there Creat, maybe post this in diseases thread for more input. Id put some aquarium salts in with them though for now as a precaution. Sorry to hear about the water change fry, i sucked one up once and found it dead in the bucket, but i just kept telling myself it was dead when i sucked it up =/

It looks like "ick" to me. I normally increase the temp to ~85F, and add some aquarium salt to the tank. If that won't clear up in 24 hours, I would add some "Ick Guard" by Jungle or something similar to that. You can get it at Walmart.

Looks like ick to me too, It's pretty easy to fix as long as you catch it early.
