(Sorry for kind of taking over your thread luvplatys >.<)
I put algae wafer, flakes, shrimp pallets, and blood worms all and grind it up nice and fine. THEY LOVE IT! Its a good mix for them too.

No problem. I am new to this, so I am still learning about all of this. I am sure someone can answer your question about feeding them.

Lol, I never said they were small, in fact I know there are much smaller fry out there! I was just surprised to see a small yellow dot swimming around my tank XD and thanks WolfHowling! I'll be sure to add some more things in the mix.

Yup. I'm a betta breeder, you should see them the day they hatch! The babies at petco could honestly be anywhere between 1 1/2 to 4 months old, it all depends on the size they sell them at and how fast the breeder grows his/her fish.

Yes they can, however you have to make sure it's the right fish. Some fish can be fin nippers like most of the Barb family, most torpedo shaped Tetra like Neon Tetras are fine to be housed with. My Female Betta Sorority is in with 7 Neon Tetras, 6 Dwarf Cory cats and a Bristlenose Pleco. You just have to be careful about nippers and then of course some betta's can't handle being in with others and might stress them out so you have to watch for their personality as well.

Yup! As long as you have a big enough tank, bettas can go with peaceful tropical fish like snails, shrimp, endlers, guppies (You should take caution with this one- only put calm bettas with them), Corydora catfish, female bettas can be in groups of four or more, some tetras, and yes... Platies.
