Wow cold house lol. My fish room is at 84*. I noticed my fish were all much more energetic and healthier in the warmer room and with the new oak leaves I put in. I will be praying to the fish gods to protect your spawn my friend.

Ha ha I know I hate it I wear more sweaters then normal people :( the fish room is actually 5* hotter then the rest of the house due to me keeping it enclosed... I have spent more money then normal people on tank heaters.

I use heat lamps. I took a large walk in closet and made it into my fish room. I used a strong plant light and hung it off the hanger rack. It's close enough to the spawning tanks for good infusoria growth. Then I have 2 other small lamps that I have on as well. As long as I keep the door shut I can maintain 84* 86* and the room is large enough to house all of my Betta and spawn for many spawns to come. I would recommend this technique even using a heat light instead of a normal light in the ceiling.

What's the water temp, now? If you still see a lot of that white spots on your fries, then its time to start "ick" medication.

Fries are very delicate, so I suggest doing half the dosage. DO NOT OVER dose!!! And you must follow the instruction!!! Other wise you will end up with worst result.

Sounds like they get a slight bit better?

Fry are delicate but not TOO delicate. Id go for the half dose as well in your situation. I know my fry have withstood water temp changes, 72 degree water, being sucked through tubes a few times, ect. They are alot less delicate then i initially had in mind at least. Wishing you the very best, keep us updated :)
