You can control the amount of fry that you have by taking the female out after just a few embraces.

They wont eat a pound of it but that's an awesome deal :)

My parents said they would help but they have no clue about bettas so it's all me :)

Ok you don't want to many fry? Well your gonna need to let her do more than five embraces. The first few produce not eggs.

When I first started I wanted as few as possible too but I soon changed my mind and went with full spawning.

You'll see the male swim down to the bottom to pick up eggs and swim back up and spit them into the nest.
