Dramaqueen has it right. Betta fry total seem to recognize food unless it moves, in other words, is alive. The reason I swear by microworms is because they are slower than the betta fry, and the live in the tank longer, and don't tend to pollute it.

If you are concerned about your tank's water quality when you are breeding, Dalphnia are great at keeping the bacteria down and the fry will eat the baby Dalphnia, very nutrious.

I don't know where locally you can buy them but you can order them off the internet. Don't let them spawn until you have food for the fry!
