Yes Valentine and Rose are the proud parents and there are several fry with blue iridescence actually. There are blue's, greens and yellows but mostly blues and greens. I can't wait to see what their colors will be like when they are grown.

The babies are doing good and starting to get some color. Their are a lot of different sized fry but the largest are about a centimeter and a half long. I am doing daily 50%-75% water changes and the fry are eating a mix of BBS, chopped up frozen adult brine shrimp, chopped frozen blood worms and finely grated beef liver. There is also some type of worms in the tank that the fry are snacking on between meals and there were some daphnia living in the tank that are gone now. About half of them can breathe air from the surface.
Here is a video-

I was going to add pics but every time I try to upload them it says "404 Bad request". Maybe it will let me tomorrow.

Thanks littlegreen and miish :)
There are about 40-50 of them. They are so fast and so many different sizes now that it is hard to count them. I will definitely be adding more pictures later, I still don't understand why I can't attach them now..

The fry are doing ok. Last week I got sick and could barely get out of bed long enough to feed them much less for water changes. Thank goodness my husband knows how to do it but he works so he was to tired to do as much as I do. He was only doing daily 25% changes when I do 50-75% and 100% at least once a week so when I got better I noticed that a couple of the largest fry had dark edges on their tails which looked like fin rot. I'm back to my regular cleaning now and it is going away. I also have a few fry that have white specks on their tails and I'm worried that this may not be normal, I don't know what to do if it isn't and I'm worried that whatever it is could spread to the other fry :(
I also had to separate the runts out into a 5 gal because they were constantly having to hide and couldn't eat. I thought there were 4-5 runts but it turned out there were 14. There were 15 but one got eaten while I was trying to net it. They are doing great now and have almost doubled in size in just a few days.
Some of the larger fry are getting pretty aggressive, especially when I'm feeding them. I feel like a couple have passed the playing stage but I keep telling myself I need to leave them in as long as possible.
Here are 2 video's from a few days ago right after I felt well enough to get out of bed. The 2nd one is of one flaring and chasing the others. IMO the cutest thing in the world is seeing an inch long baby betta flaring

The babies are doing great. So far I've had to jar 9 of them a couple at a time. I took out the most visibly aggressive and a couple that had been beaten up pretty badly. The others are now pretty peaceful and went through a growth spurt. The 12 runts in the 5 gal are growing also but not very quickly. I took a picture from above the 10gal and had a head count of 53! I can't believe I thought there were only 25-30 for so long and there are 65! I have tried crushed pellets in the 10gal and they take them happily but am still mostly feeding them frozen brine shrimp and blood worms. The Jarred fry are just now starting to try the pellets but I'm not pushing it.
So here are lots of pics from weeks 7-8 in random order. One of them has a white upper lip :)
