Give them another day or so, they will live off the eggsack in their tummy at first, once freeswimming feed them. What kinds of foods do you have to start them off with?

I also did infusoria first and then egg yolked till they were big enough to eat a BBS at a week. Just make sure you dont overfeed the eggyolk, i basically dipped my finger in watery egg yolk then dipped my finger into their tank XD Congrats on wigglers! :)

ok thanks =D. there daddy seems to be overwhelmed because they keep on falling and he has to pick them up XP awhile there mother does nothing and eats (she doesn't have a big belly as much no more X]) with my other female.

am thinking about keeping one of the females (from the spawn) with the mother is that ok?

She wont recognize it as her offspring and if its too small she will try to eat it, if you wait till its about her size and put them in a good space thats new to both of them they may work out, but i read 2 was a bad number, you need at least 3+ i think? I dont know much about sororities or housing females together. Im thinking of that but if your talking about dividing a tank then it would be fine.

i actually have luna, and my brother female "midnight" with straw berry so there is already 3. it is actually a community tank with 1 platy, i glo fish, i danio, 3 angels, and 1 algae eater. actually strawberry (the mother) is the smallest female betta in the tank XP.

i did had to females together (with no divider) it took them 3 days and they where fine the small one wouldn't flare at the big one no more (the small one was the alpha between the two XP) they look at the gravel for food together, i still miss them ='[... but they where fine until weeks later i added a third one then my small (her name was scarlet even though she was blue XD) one got aggressive to the big one "sapphire" again.
