It took my recent spawn a while to realize that the microworms were on the bottom and as soon as they did they switched from wanting the bbs to the microworms. And congrats I cant wait to see some of the fry!

Mine usually pick it up right away, they are always hungry little buggers. Hopefully these ones will learn like yours did! Thanks :)

They are doing much better today, a few of them have nice little pink bellies :3 I did a small water change today, I just pipetted out some dead worms/bbs and replaced it via pipette. The fry don't seem fazed even though they are so young. There might be more than 100! More and more pop up every day.

IME this is usually 1. temp related 2. the amount of diluted oxygen in the water.

Try using an air pump set to minimum. Mine usually remain near the floor during the day and many remain there at night (most surface). If you don't have a pump, do more daily/2 wc .... like about 10 - 20%. Hope they all make it.

About the number of fry ..... I'm guessing you currently have between 100-200. Newly hatched bettas don't look .... much but if you count them, you'll be very surprised.....

I think you are on to something there... I usually use a sponge filter at a low setting, which would oxygenate the water a bit. I'll put in a sponge filter and see if that helps. They are spending more time in the middle now, but a large number of them remain at the surface. They look healthy enough and they are eating, I just don't like that they are not behaving like past spawns! It throws me off.

Ya, I failed miserably at counting them, but I couldn't really see them though the glass and tupperware. There really are a ton of them and there is going to be a large difference in size between them based on eating habits.
