Raising a single fry baby...how to care for one???

I have had grown bettas all my life but am just now getting into the proper keeping of them, when I was a kid it was just simple stuff but now that im older and wiser i want my bettas to have the best life i can provide. I just got my first betta in 2 yrs a week ago, so far so good. Today at petco i noticed they had some frys and suddenly i realized...i could raise my own, what a suprise it would be! I want to set up a 2.5 gal i have and have it all planted and cycled before I get the fry but what care to they require? What type of heater? Are they are any different than caring for an adult betta? I would imagine you couldnt use a filter, i would worry it would suck him up lol...any advice?

AWESOME ARTICLE! Thank you...very informative...sound like I will have some research to do...I would really like to give it a try...and yes as the article says petco is the supplier I saw the babys at...I see a lot of familys with children looking at them when I was there...Once I get moonies tank planted I will start to think about the babies tank, I know fry love to have plants to hide in :)
