Question Whats the best thing to feed your fry?

What is the best quality food to feed baby Betta fry that you dont have to order online?

Well good luck with the 'not having to order online' bit as what LFS you have in your area and what they carry is not exactly a precise thing. BBS (baby brine shrimp aka freshly hatched), infusoria, vinegar eels and supposedly there's some Hikari brand fry food I've also heard of... never seen that in stores though, but those are some of the foods baby fry will eat. Whether or not your store carries live cultures or any of the other stuff is another story. The BBS is often your best bet if you aren't going to buy online, as you may be able to find brine shrimp eggs at your LFS, which you can then hatch and have BBS.

Seems no one knows this or maybe just doesn't wanna say,
and I probably should continue not saying but seems so many determined people out there,

So instead of having dead and dying fry from starvation which I hate the thought of
you can use this, it's works for betta fry.

Walmart carries it and most fish stores around here have it too.

Thanks Chicklet thats some good info, do you know how long you should feed them that, and if you can feed them that as soon as their off their egg sack. Also is that a primary diet or should you feed them other stuff.

When they are free swiming you feed them BBS/others listed
Then when they reach the age of 3 1/2 you feed them a regular diet
