That's great to know and quite sad that many are starving

here are some cute photos of some fry free swimming! Super hard to take the photos, but I want to say that there is approximately 100 frys, a lot more than I anticipated, but the more the better. Hopefully everything goes smoothly in this spawn.

Quite interesting, I go out of town on fridays and come back on sundays. I'm surprised they all survived. I still see 1 or 2 swimming vertically/can't swim. However, I did put like about 10ml of vinegar eel on friday night. Came back and put some more in, I also put some fine powder, supposed to be "micro", but it did attract a lot of the frys though. They started to munch on something too small for me to see. I wasn't sure if it was vinegar eels or something smaller, I was able to see some vinegar eels swimming in the area too.

My tank does have plants and small micro critters swimming around and i saw a worm, maybe detritus.

my heater and airline tube for sponge filter is starting to build a fuzzy brown coat. - what should i do?, also the bottom seems dirty, but then it could just be the IAL.

Forgot to add that some fry have a black color, some are minimal, while some has no black color. So I'm assuming based on my spawn. If they grow up. I'll get a combination of dark colored and Cambodians. If I did my research correct. I should get some black lace, melano, super blacks, Cambodians, steel blues, etc

I spawned in a 5gallon, if they just hatched then they are like a piece of hair, have to be at eye level to see them. Otherwise i can see most of my frys about 1 feet away from my tank, they are pretty spread out though, but most of mine are near the surface which makes it easier to see.

So if they are free swimming you should be able to see them. mine are roughly the size of a newborn guppy right now. some are still smaller.

Oh no... I think i only have like 10 left... I realized that it was white fungus just now, and it was fine last night, but then this morning, its all over the tank. I should've known better. I forgot to get snails. Hopefully my last 10 stays alive, I might re spawn a new batch. They are getting stuck to the fungus and then they die from starvation i think.

Something similar happened to me. I will be trying to install a small air filter inside a guppy fries nest cage to avoid suction the betta fry but still treat the water. Also i will try to add 1 cub of new water everyday and see the water condition difference.

The water conditions are very important to keep thos fry alive. I have over 20 times producing fry without 1 single good luck to keep them alive from more than 1 week.

I know my water temperature is right, i have plants to help with water conditions, indian almond leaves, ect... but apparently when i feed the fry, the excess of food may be is deteriorating the water conditions rising the Nitrate and Nitrites and ammonia little bit, creating fungus ect..

I will like to hear the opinion from any expert here.

Dexter from the Youtube channel recommend do not feed the fry for the first 5 days. I can try that as well.

Do i need one ??
