6 week old betta fry

Would still eat bbs right? I only have one fry that i just got tonight. And im planning on setting up a bbs hatchery, but only being 1 fry what do i do with the rest of the bbs that hatch? Or should i just do like 10 eggs and after the fry is full give what ever that hatched thats left to my adult bettas? I dont wanna be hatching more then nessary cause i only have a little valve of eggs and i plan to breed at some point so i want to have some on hand for my own spawn

I wouldn't bother with a hatchery for just one betta.
You could get some frozen bbs or decaps... some adults ignore the bbs because they are so small.

I cant get my hands on decaps unless i order online
And it could take a week or llonger for them to get here. But i do have frozen brine shrimp and blood worms. If i were to cut those up into tiny pieces would tthat work? Poor little thing has a completly empty stomach and doesnt look to good at all. He/she is still in its cup but floating in a nice heated tank while i get its own tank set up and heated

Im going to order a half pound tonight of decap brine shrimp eggs, but like i said, it'll be a week or a little more until it gets here, so what should i do in the mean time??

I have a few baby guppy fry i could feed the extra BBS to if i did a hatchery.... I have like 10 fry left that havent been eaten by my big fish lol
