Why did you medicate them? They are sick?

It helps to prevent fungus growth on fry/egg and also help to raise the oxygen level.

the question is, how much to add? don't want to overdose, as it may damage the plant.

Meth blue is a toxin to be used only if treating disease. Use indian almond leaf or just oak leaf is ok they help with the Fish and fry immune system instead.

Also I tried to feed my male after spawning while he was tending the eggs, he completely ignored his favorite frozen bloodworms and left them laying on the bottom of the tank. I ended up removing them uneaten.

I've never heard of treating them right away. I use IAL and some AQ salt as preventives.

Even AQ salt is a bit risky. IAL will help with most of anything of general healthy and is their native leaf. Though they can definitely use oak leaves.

I haven't used any meds on my babies. If you cannot get Indian Almond Leaves, look around for Dried Oak Leaves - that are away from traffic/highways.

I've never gotten fungus on the eggs My betta daddys tend to move the nest around, or move the eggs to keep the fungus at bay!

So glad you're babies hatched! And I find it funny too, watching a baby land on daddy's nose, then he frantically looks around for the baby!

The meth blue is a poison ment to kill the parasites. But it is toxic to everything, just not as.

A small amount of toxin is still a toxin. Do you want a small amount of poison? Ewww! If you are treating an illness, that is different, time to bring out the big guns. To prevent illness, boost the immune system.

Keep your water fresh and clean! Use IAL or oak leaves as a preventitive.

Best of luck with your fish!

Jeff.
