erm you cant just put them with any male O.o i may have misunderstood this but i thougt i read that u were just going to put them in with a male they need to stay in the nest till free swimming confidently. if u cannot feed them or are not prepared or able to tend them just toss em in with the females, then dont feed the females for a few days after they feast

If they are willing to eat flakes then you need to go to the store and pick up some fry starter powder... They are far too small to actually eat flakes.

You need live food for them, if you go on aquabid, a seller called BasementBettas sells cultures that will arrive practically ready to feed. Microworms, walter worms, banana worms, etc are good.

Keep up on water changes, you should have that 10 gallon full and once they are free swimming, you'll want to start doing large (75-90%) water changes a day.
