All I can think when I see that pic is... How many baby bettas can you fit on the head of a pin?

Too cute!

Quick update...
I've lost about 50% of my spawn . Not really sure why but guessing a water quality issue. I noticed more and more fry were having issues swimming. The hornwort I used dropped all its darn needles and my pond snails had a population explosion all adding to the ammonia levels. I've been trying to siphion as much as I could out and replacing a 1/2 gallon of water each time but it wasnt helping much. In a desperate attempt to save my spawn I decided to do 100% water change. The fry arent even a week old so I knew it was risky and I could kill the spawn. I spent an hour catching all my fry and then replaced the water. I slowly acclimated and released them. So far eveyone is fine . I even got them to eat some golden pearls that I ground in to a fine dust. I kept one snail and will never use hornwort again.

Sorry to hear about your loss, pitgurl! Were you able to count the fry as you siphoned them?

Horwort is great until something starts killing it. then it's a disaster. I love it, but i won't ever use it again myself.

@bettalover2033- There was more then I thought once I got them in to a cup, maybe around 30 or so. I saw a couple still having issues but I think they were already having problems. I just caught everyone I saw. I culled the obvious ones but may have missed a few.

I'm so sorry you have had such a hard time with your fry. At least you have about 30 left...not bad really.

Oh I see,well it's good that you did since they would give the strong healthy ones a good chance of living and growing space.

Getting them to grow fast should be easy now. Do a lot of water changes and feed them a bit more than you regularly do a day, but in smaller portions.
