DEAD, DEAD, DEAD... Large numbers of dead fry on floor of tank and others not dead yet but on floor and a few in the plants. No yet hortz. swimming just going up and down. None in nest and i took dad out earlier because he wasn't doing anything.
Possible mistakes...Got lazy when setting up breeding tank and used bottled water and betta spa instead of tap and Prime...Beginners bad luck.....fish's first time bad luck...fed too early and that led to poor water. Fed them microworms yesterday. Again Begginer's bad luck...pulled male out too early.
Ques..When to start sponge filter?
Fry all out of nest but still only going up and down. Many sit on floor of
tank..bad?
I have about a dozen fry in the floating plants and will hope. The female did not produce alot of eggs. Not compared to another female and male breeding in a community tank as i type. Wow was she loaded with eggs. Interesting to see if any fry make it.
Well i will give them a couple of weeks to recover before i start carding them again. and keep you updated if any fry survive.
Thanks for the interest.

I'll be honest, I didn't feed for the first week. Lots of plants and little green critters, tones of decomposing IAL in the water too. I left male in to pick them off the bottom and put back in the nest. Dag was frustrating but he eventually picked it up.

I also broke the rules and had a little DIY sponge filter on super super low (like a bubble every five seconds) in the corner from the very start.

I usually take the dad out on the third day after hatching. Once the fry are capable of swimming away from the nest and the father needs to chase them in order to catch them, that's when he can be removed.
