Housing Baby Betta with Adult Female?

I know this must be a ridiculous question, but I was just wondering... is it possible to keep an adult female Betta in the same tank as a two-month-old fry?

generally they say to keep the new fry away from the females because the females will eat them. I'm not sure about a 2 month old though. Females can be very aggressive, so I personally wouldn't risk it.

I agree, even my little 3 month old female is aggressive, if I put another baby with her she would shred it.

The adult female would go after the baby.. naturally, females leave after laying the eggs and have nothing to do with raising the fry- so to her something that small and another betta is not welcomed and it can go downhill quickly.
