Update: Well I pulled out my first dead one poor little guy he looked like he had something growing out of his stomach ew... I hope it isnt contagious and isnt related to my internal parasite/ bacterial thing problem I have been having... also I almost had one to cull today but I lost him in the duckweed... he had a missing pectoral fin... poor little bugger but he got away

Eek, poor little one. I hope it isnt contagious also, maybe he just had digestion issues or something.

I like to use duckweed in my spawn tanks, too. I got mine by accident a few years ago when I bagged up a female that had duckweed in her tank. The funny thing is that there was no duckweed at all in her bag! I was told "you don't want duckweed." I admit that duckweed is sort of a pain when it gets stuck all over your arms when you are doing maintenance. Betta fry love to cling onto duckweed though. I really hope that the duckweed that you collected outdoors is not harboring something that could harm these betta fry. Duckweed grows so fast that I could have sent you some duckweed that was cultured indoors for free....as long as it is not illegal in your area.

Its not illegal thank goodness and thanks everyone I'm glad I only lost one though :) all I have found so far was one dragonfly nymph that clung to the duckweed when the fry were tiny but this was when their dad was with them and he ate it promptly.... the others are growing great another water change tomorrow hopefully
