Update: So I think I figured out what was wrong. I believe it was my pH after losing those fry and some adults I found that my pH fluctuation was beating my fish up. I live on a aquifer that happens to fluctuate between 6.9-8.4 I am surprised that some fry lived through that. Good news is that the remainder of the spawn looks like their doin good and growing and I should have some pics soon.

Sounds like the toughest fry survived. How do you plan on keeping the PH from fluctuating so much?

Until they reach adult size I am buying bottled water the pH is constant 6.6 bottled nice and soft too. I am watching the pH to just to use when it does drop but whenever it rains, and it is spring, my pH flies back up to above 8 :/ other great ( not really) thing about my tap water it buffers water really well so it takes forever for the pH to go back to normal.

Cool

An easier way to do it is: I have a 50 gallon plastic trash can that I age water in. I heat it with a 200W submersible heater and condition with Aqua-safe and IAL. You can adjust your ph while the water is aging and save shocking the fish.

For changing water in jars it is pretty simple. fill jar with aged pre-heated water, scoop Betta into new water, dump old water, rinse well in sink, refill, repeat.

I set the heater to whatever the Betta's jar temp is.

Jeff.
