I think if you bred your Bettas 4-5 weeks ago, you wouldn't have any issue seeing Bettas in your tank right now. I don't think you got any surviving eggs, the male probably ate them.

This is what Betta fry look like at 4-5 weeks old: 4week old bettas

wow, those are some nice looking fry :o I had a few who grew big, others remained super small. -.- I had to separate, then feed them accordingly

raising fry is hard work! breeding is hard work o.o

I don't breed, but I'm positive 4 week old fry don't need to be seen under a microscope :)

nope My 5 week old ones, were small, but looked like fish basically, at the 4 week point the baby bettas should look like mini versions with short fins

no idea where mine came from, the plants and everything had been in the tank for a month, then i went away for 2 weeks and had an algae explosion+ 100's of pond snails and with all the plants i had in there, there was alot of surface cover. I removed the dying plants and a couple of days later they were pretty much all gone. So best i can figure is that they're pretty common, but the fish normally eat them before you notice.

It's possible they came from the frozen bloodworms or glassworms i feed my bettas maybe?

I'm not sure about that... I know they can come with live foods.

they sell frozen daphnia..so i would think if they came with your frozen foods they would be dead.

I've never gotten snails or other critters with my plants..mostly because i buy the 'snail free' kind at petsmart or bulbs to grow my own. I never keep plants long though >< I don't have a green thumb. Since i've been trying to buy snails themselves but no one seems to orde any lately it would be nice to get some with my plants xD.
