I wouldnt try moving the the fry. you'll half to remove the male, when they start free swimming. and I wouldnt even begin to move the fry until atleast 4-5 weeks old when you can easily see them all.

Okay - and I'm worried about the tank since its set up for adults and such looks well... nothing like the breeding tanks I've seen. D:

For food, as a fast souce you can use egg yolk. Consult the Breeding Bettas section for that stuff... >> I'm... a little shocked at how fast that who breeding thing worked for you. lol
So sorry if I'm a lack of help. xD;

This is a crash course in breeding that I was not expecting. Ha ha I'm going to be really sad if I kill my babies young because I have no idea what I'm doing.

Do you think that gravel will be a problem with the fry? It's a 29 gallon tank

A 29 gallon should be fine for the fry. Hopefully, now that the thread has brrn moved we can get some of the breeders to aqdvise you on feeding. Hopefully the gravel won't be too much of a problem. The male is taking care of the nest so that's good.

For food you can also buy Hikari first bites, Artison's betta starter is better but either will work for food. Petco carries the first bites.

It's probably a good idea to also use the egg yoke.

How do I prepare and serve the egg yolk to the babies? c: I'll try anything to hopefully save them. I wasn't expecting them but I'm old enough to spring for the supplies. And I have the space.

Honestly, I think you should botch 'em. I don't mean to sound mean or anything. It's just that taking on fry so suddenly can be really hard to handle. You can totally go for it- by all means! But IMO, I think It'd be easier on you if you just tossed 'em.

Egg Yolk- Hard boil an egg and toss the white after it's cooled. Dilute the yolk with water and feed it! Pretty simple :)

I considered it to be honest. But... I think I would feel too bad if I didn't try to keep them. I already have 3 people who want fry if they live [one who is offering to take 4-5 girls if I have them]. I'm keeping at least one [male] for myself. And to be honest its a small spawn and I'm sure [sadly] that at least a few won't make it. And I do have the resources and time to take care of them in all honestly even if it will make me a little more busy. c:

So this is me being a guilty fish that I didn't realize that she could fit through 1/8th inch slits.

Thanks for the egg info :D I'll pick up some eggs as well as try to find fry food in the morning first thing.
