Sorry I know it isn't just all about how you take care of them, I just meant it has a large part to do with it.
Yea if you live in a cold area and your power goes out for a long time and your water turns cold they can all die.. and yea if you feed them certain types of foods or didn't take care of the water very well there can be an outbreak of disease, and if you're not careful and don't keep a good eye on the dad he can eat all your fry up(but this can avoided) but besides disasters like that, if you take good care of your spawn.. they can all have a high survival rate and alot of them can make it to adulthood is all i'm trying to say.
some spawns will get alot of deformities and some spawns will get very little deformities, i think it depends on the parents.
so anyways to answer ksage's question.. there can be a large amount of fry that make it to adulthood or very little.. all depending on the spawn type.. the power outages ;P and how well they are taken care of.. if you search betta fry on youtube and follow the spawn log of some breeders.. you'll see that some breeders have very little fry that make it to adulthood while some breeders have fry in the hundreds that made it to adulthood.. so it really all just depends
here are some examples of breeders who successfully raised their fry to adulthood with a high survival rate.
