Most will leave the male until the fry are free swimming. Or at least some of them are. This way you can avoid him eating fry to reduce the number to a manageable size when they're all over the place!

Chances are that he won't eat so don't bother dirtying up the water w unearth food. A healthy betta can go a week without eating no problem.

Lol edit: Uneaten not unearth. I'm at work on my iPhone oops!

I usually feed my male once a day while in the spawning tank.
I just wiggle bloodworms close to the nest and wait until he comes get them. I'm careful of not overfeeding and not leaving anything left over in the tank.
I do not feed pellets because, IMO, they will look too much like eggs to the male and he might end up eating the egg or fry.
It's so excting, isn't it? I love watching fry!
