Baby betta care, help please :)

I just bought a baby betta from petco. I know we should ignore the babies but they're so cute and tempting :) Anyway I do have a 10 gallon tank with a common goldfish who is currently sick with gill fluke. I am treating him so no worries about him. My questions are about the baby since I am going to put him in a 1.5 gallon tank with a heater and maybe the filter. Depends if the filter is too strong or not.

But how do I take care of the little guy? I've never had a baby anything.

What do I feed it? I have freeze-dried blood worms and tropical flakes. Should I get something else too?

Is there anything else I should know about the baby bettas before I go further?

I put conditioner, ammonia safe, and algae control and 1/4 teaspoon of salt into the water and I am letting it filter and cycle for now with an old good filter that's not polluted. Is my tank set up fine for now?

The stickies in the breeding section have all the info you'll need. But you don't need a 30 gallon tank for just one fry xD

I fed my baby crushed betta pellets when I got him.

Temperature is very important too. Try to keep it around 80.
