Sorry to hear you lost alot of betta fry but happy you gained some plattys xD you know to remove them from the mom, right? If anything like guppys they'll eat the babies.

I"ve heard of people raising guppy fry and betta fry together(especially when trying to switch to non-live foods). Do you plan on maybe raising the platys with the bettas?

The platy gave birth to another 10+ babies. So I have about 20+ platy frys now.

Yep, I removed all the platy babies into a cup and they are floating w/ the betta frys. I'll be putting the platy and endler/guppy babies with the bettas once the betta fry grows bigger. Right now the platy and the ender/guppy are larger the fry by lot.

yeah, one benefit to them being born instead of hatched i guess, gotta be big enough to swim for their lives and eat. ><

No more nice picture D:
My sister lost her camera at the airport. $2,000 camera and equipment gone...

Frys are now 4 weeks olds!!
4 out of the 12 frys are getting their stripes and getting darker. So hopefully this means they'll be like their dad w/ the dragonscale.

Frys are 5weeks old. Well more than 5 weeks now.

All 12 frys so far are still alive.
One of them is having problem swimming so I placed it in a floating cup. It doesn't swim around the top but swims along the floor. It's been doing this for days now but is still alive and eating.

Here's a video of the 12 frys at 5weeks.

10 weeks old now! They got bigger :D There is one or two that is still really tiny. They're not even half the size of the large ones.
Also there's a couple of platy and endler frys in with the bettas.

It's always amazing to me how big eyes with tails end up to be such beautiful bettas. Your fry are really growing prettier and prettier every day.
