Hatch the brine shrimp eggs after fry are free swimming. You need to feed fry newly hatched BBS , not adult BS.

The parent's probably won't eat the newly hatched brine shrimp, they are so small. You are supposed to use adult brine shrimps for adult betta's since the adult brine shrimps are high in protein.

This might be a dumb question but....
You hatch/raise BS in saltwater and bettas and freshwater fish are freshwater, So isn't it unhealthy when you put the BS in the tank because you always get a little of the saltwater in with the freshwater? I meen fry are week so wouldn't the small amount of saltwater going into the tank hurt them? Or is there just not enough saltwater going in with the brine shrimp to hurt the fish.

I filter the bbs into a shrimp net and then feed them. Very little salt water then. Many put salt into their water anyway.

It's best to rinse them before feeding your betta. But a tiny amount of salt in, say a 10g wouldn't be harmful to fry specially with regular water changes.
