Just another update from the betta fry.

Today is Day 5. Fry looks happy and swimming very active. I notice only 4 death fry on top of the heater. May be they sit there and die from overheating the body ? dont know.

Here the video.

An update.

Today in the morning before go to work i seen the fry not to active and many laying in the bottom of the tank. Today after work i have may be have left 10 of them alive.

I check the water parameters to determine the cause and the ammonia is just a little bit high, the nitrite considerable high and the nitrate high. PH 7.5 normal.

I guess the problem has been overfeeding with Walter Worms and they are not eating them because are too large and when the walter worm die spike the parameters.

The water has a bad smell as well. Temperature is constant in 79.

What i am doing wrong? i guess may be instead to use walter worms i should use insuforia for the first week. May be they are dying starving since they are not growing in 1 week as they should do.

This is a learning curve. Everytime i go farder.

Oh no! Hopefully those last 10 can survive. In my opinion I don't know if infurosia should be the main source of food. From my research people prefer using vinegar eels or microworms as a first food. But it's all up to you. Let me know you do with infurosia on your next spawn. Goodluck! Hoping those last 10 survives.

oh wow if walter worms are smaller, then your betta frys must be super tiny!!! I dont know the live span of walter worms, but from research vinegar eel lives up to 3 days before dying while microworms usually last for 12 hours only. So i prefer vinegar eel, so it wont dirty the tank quickly like in your case with the walter worms.
