No...... I think that would be a snail or something of some sort.
http://www.waynesthisandthat.com/bettagrowth.html this shows you roughly what they should look like. How long ago did you breed them? if you hadn't seen black dots darting about, you probably didn't get fry.

Hello and welcome to the forum. I think you need to do some research before breeding your fish. We have several stickies at the top of the breeding section that will give you some good advice.You have to have a proper setup, the pair need to be conditioned and you'll need special foods for the fry because they cannot eat what adults eat.

Hello, and thank you for reply. We breed them about 4-5 weeks ago, roughly. No we did not see any black dots darting out, until yesterday when I looked I then saw very little red things. Got my microscope out and this is what the red things were under the scope. Also there was other things, snails, ect.. Thanks again.

If it is daphnia, it isn't really something to worry about. A lot of people actually feed daphnia to their bettas. Your betta may start gobbling them up If they get big enough. As to where they came from, they could've hitched a ride on a live plant. That's where I'm assuming mine came from. I was bad and didn't QT my live plants. If they really "bug" you (teehee), I've read more frequent water changes with stirring up the substrate with chopsticks or gravel siphon will help.
