My book says on day 4 or 5 you can begin feeding bbs and microworms. The liquid fry food can be fed the first few days. Hopefully, the package will tell you something.

Yes. Well said dramaqueene. But when they reach 3 1/2 months you can feed them what you feed your other Betta's

I don't think so when they are that little. They can eat microworms. You have to get a culture and grow them yourself.

Crowntail Lover - bloodworms of that size will not be sufficient to feed to baby betta fry, as when they first start out, the fry are about that size themselves. They just can't eat something that big, it won't fit in their itsy bitsy mouths.
A helpful reference on betta fry size:

I was refering to when they are 3-5 days old....
~~
I went to PetSmart today and they had BBShrimp there but I didnt buy because I wanted ask you guys first. It was is a food container, just like regular foods for the adult Bettas
Is this alright to feed when they are 3-5 days old? My book says its safe, but I want a opinion from a breeder.
Oh and I couldnt find the Wardleys Fry food there. So I guess I will searching till come time to breed.

And of course I came home with two more Crowntails.
Napolen, and Pearl.....
I couldnt stand those Bettas conditions. Every single one looked horrible. So I rescued the "healthy" two before they found the same fate..... They are well and healthy in their new habitats!
Nepolan is a beautiful rainbow with a pale green, a baby blue, a pearl white, and red on the tips of his fins. He also has a gray spot right on the top of his head.
Pearl is a pale gray that turns a bright blue when moving. She also has some red in her bottom fins. And two black stripes on her side.

I think it has to be newly hatched baby brine shrimp but I'm not sure.
