As an experienced breeder I have to tell you that feeding fry that Walmart stuff or any other pre-made food is generally the first step to losing your spawn. Betta fry do not usually eat something that is not moving. BBS must not be overfed or it will cause swim bladder and parasites, and bacteria and kill the fry. The best thing you can feed your fry until they are old enough to eat normal food, namely bloodworms, is microworms. The cultures are EASY to make. You can check Craigslist or put an ad on Craigslist or your local aquarium hobby forum for someone selling cultures. They typically only cost 5-10 bucks and you can keep them going forever. BBS are good but only if you feed them a little bit every couple of days.

I've never gotten swim bladder from microworms, but have from the BBS. Considering buying the frozen worm tablets from Petsmart. They aren't good for your fry, again fry like their food alive, but they are great for conditioning your breeding pairs.

I can give you more info if you like. I am currently setting up a halfmoon spawn.

Thank you. I've lost a lot of fry through trial and error. I kind of want to save anyone from the same losses I've had if possible. :D

I'd post pictures of my two pairs, but my camera is MIA.

I feed my baby fish first bites powdered food. I buy it at a pet store in town here. the babies have always grown well and healthy with no ill effects. but some live food is good too. I heard people say On here.
