Old Man is tireless, what a devoted father. He's going to be so hungry when the fry are freeswimming. And tired. Definitely tired.

How many days until the fry are freeswimming and the poor guy can take a break? I know next to nothing about betta breeding.

Poor guy, it looks like every time he returns one fry to the nest, two more fall out. He's like, "Got . . . to . . . rest . . ."

How do you do water changes with the fry?

VERY carefully XD I plan to use an airline hose and carefully remove the water, but seeing their size i may just end up using a turkey baster for alittle while, right now they are okay and all the plants help so ill probobly add a bit of water to fill it to the top when they freeswim then work on removing some daily.
Yeah they fall faster ten he can keep up, poor old man! plus hes got two nests gonig now for some reason so he must swim back and forth.

Old Man's probably about ready to hire a nanny to help him. I did read on a different post that it's okay if he doesn't put all the fry back in the nest since they don't breathe air right now. I think it was OFL who said that.

I always wondered about the water change thing, especially seeing how deceptively easy it is to suck a full-grown betta up the siphon.
