If you have an extra free tank, separate the large and small ones. Though the small ones eat like crazy, for some reason they will remain small if not separated.... maybe it's the stunting hormones, IDK. I didn't separate mine and the difference was 2.5cm - 0.5cm.

I often keep 6 - 12 fry under 2cm (less if I want to boost growth) in 1g (flat/shallow containers are better than normal tanks) but give them 2x 30-50% daily, feed 3 x a day. But once they reach 2cm, they have to be moved or reduced. Otherwise you might get problems.

I'm starting to see a little red wash on some of the fry, not to worry, the mother had red and lost it as she grew.

That's fine, I'm sure she will either make it work or grow out of it so not to worry. In fact it is a bit hard to breed out (doable) but I like the red wash sometimes in dark bettas. Like for my Red and Black male, he has red wash and it suits him so nicely. They are HMPK's or HMs? I forgot from so many spawn logs I follow.

Mine are HM's. The fry's tank got cleaned last night, and since they are getting bigger, they are much easier to see now. As soon as I get batteries for my camera, I will post more pics. The ventrals are comming in too.
