Is the father still in the tank? You need to remove him!

How big is the tank? How many gallons?

...I've never bred my bettas before, though I'm going to this summer, so I haven't had any experience.

...I would assume so... the main reason you're supposed to remove the female because she's just been nipped and chased, embraced, etc, etc and she's all tired out, and needs time to heal. That could be another factor, though.

Around four days is the time you're supposed to take the male out (is what I've read.)

And you're feeding the fry? I believe you should siphon the bottom of the tank every day to get rid of dead fry and gunk.

A sponge filter set on low would help too.

... I have an idea, but I'm really not sure and I don't want to say anything wrong... Other members on the forum can help you.

Don't quote me on this, but maybe small water changes every day or every other day. I'm just familiar with ten gallons.

No problem. I would say maybe 25% to 50% water changes every day or every other day with siphoning every day would be fine.

...I tried. XP

@shadow123 Well I first breeded my betta female she did eat the frys ..( I was to see how my female will react to the frys) but then I read in a book where a lady took her male out and let her female take care of the frys ...so there could be a 50/50 chance that should be her frys

That's a big risk, letting the female take care of the fry.... Really low chance of that actually succeeding.
