So my question is.. you have them in a 10 gallon.. what do you have for a grow out tank? I would set up a 30+ gallon real soon to get it cycled and ready for them.. don't forget the 100+ jars you will need to separate each one once they start becoming aggressive. Also heating each one appropriately.
You did it on a whim, but you still have a minimum of a few hundred dollars of equipment needed. Sadly, this spawn may not make it as the bettas were not conditioned prior to being bred, if they were just brought home it means they haven't been eating as it is.. the fry most likely will need to be culled down significantly sadly.
Start looking for places to sell these guys, as their genes aren't going to be too strong, and VTs are hard to sell.. May be able to sell them for $2 on aquabid, but you won't get the cost you are going to need to spend on additional tanks, jars, food, heat for all (which includes a big jump in electricity bill), packaging, etc.
This may be a costly learning experience for you, and sadly, for the babies.
You also stated you wanted to put a female/male together rather then a male/male.. you do realize you can't have them together, right? Not even a male/female, and not because of mating.. because one will pretty much kill the other- luckily it didn't happen, as it is common in fish that weren't acclimated properly together to fight rather then mate.. females want nothing to do with a male outside of the actual spawn process.. females want nothing to do with other females, and males want nothing to do with either of the sexes period (excluding certain circumstances that I'm not going to get into in here).
Good luck to you.. sorry.. just frustrates me when people don't.. research, think.. learn.
