Its amazing how something so small as those fry can grow up to be our beautiful bettas.... the world sure does work in wonderous ways. I still thank the person who bred my veiltail every day, even though I have been discouraged from breeding them... in my opinion, veiltails have more personality! Wel... maybe its just me... :)

Absolutely!
The discouragement isn't really because they aren't beautiful. I think VT are stunning in their own way. The problem with breeding VTs is that there's very little market for them so it would be very hard to even give away grown up VTs. Unless you're willing to donate them or keep all the fish (in some cases 100+) is not a good idea to breed VTs. It's much easier to find homes for HMs and HMPKs because people will be more willing to spend the money on them.

I would say yes have faith. I dont feed my fry until they are 1 week old and then I start them on BBS. Make sure you are very careful with adding things. If you have had plants in there for 2 weeks you are sure to have infusoria!
