Consider getting a good pair from a breeder from the start.

Get vinegar eels for there first feed. There a guy on aquabid that sells his for like 2 or 3 dollar and it's free shipping. Vinegar eels is good because some frys that are born are too small to eat baby brine shrimp. Then after that BBS because betta fry doesn't like flake food that much.
