Smile Fry Food and Fry Colors?

Hallo!!!! Where ever you are I hope you are having and FANTASTIXX day!!!

So my local (awesome) fish store sells live adult (I think) Brine Shrimp. Can fry eat adult brine shrimps or do they need little babies? Just wondering. If not, Ok! :D Will make it work but it would be a TON less work on top of the (super rewarding) other fry work!

Also:
Here are the two halfmoons I am going to breed, what do you think the babies are going to look like, and is anyone looking for some fry coming up this summer or so, I will be selling the little ones once they grow!

Dad:


Mom:

SOOOOOO EXCITED! Beyond belief!!!

(Sorry for all the caps and random excitedness but well...)

Baby bettas are so small you can barely see them. You need SMALL LIVE FOOD.

No problem! Be sure to have everything ready a few weeks prior to spawning (everything in the stickies).

Multi colors most likely. Be sure to buy a bigger grow out tank/tub! You can't raise fry in the same tank you spawn in. Also get some pellet foods for later when the fry get bigger.

yes multi colors come out from breeding combodians to solids for some reason :P and get small live foods like micro worms, or so. or you could try to get some infusoria or egg yolk (hard boiled egg yolk)
