Thank you sooo much. I am going to get started ASAP. I just called another pet store near me and they have Baby Brine Shrimp eggs but most likely I would have to wait a week to get Mircroworm eggs if I ordered through them. I just did a quick search through Amazon and was wondering if these would be ok?

From what I've read, betta fry most likely would not go for frozen foods..

Yes, frozen foods will have to wait until they are older.

Thank you. I ended up not purchasing the frozen food but I did order some microworms off of ebay. I will be feeding the fry the egg yolk until I can get the microworms

The fry have hatched and I am truly fascinated by the whole process. I have the Microworm eggs on the way and I can't wait to get started. I was wondering though when I can start doing water changes on the tank?

I also want to give everyone a BIG thank you for all your help and support in my journey.

You wont be doing any water changes until your fry are big enough to be avoided. 10 days at least imo and even then it can be a little tricky dodging them.

Good luck with your spawn.

Thank you. I'm very excited. I was planning on turning my 30 gallon into something completely different but now I'm planning on going more in depth with my Betta.

After about day 7 you can start adding 1g of dechlor water to the tank per day until it is full. You can then start to remove some of the water via an airline tube with an airstone at the end. This keeps the tiny fry from getting sucked in. Just make sure to add water very slowly and keep the water going in as close to exact same tank temp as possible. Fry do not handle temp changes very well.
