Permission to double post

Started a new thread because the images all got removed from the other and it was a bit of a mess.
Male:

Female :

15/06/2020 - Added male to the spawning tank and added female in a jar in the spawning tank a few hours later
16/06/2020 - Released the female and they started spawning 30 mins after. They finished spawning after about 4 hours
17/06/2020 - Fry hatched were all hatched at about 3am

I can't remember when they became free swimming but the fry are 8 days old now and i thought there were only 50 fry but i counted 150-200 when i moved them into their grow out tank at 6 days old

The sponge filter is temporary and I'll start raising the water level slowly with every water change. There are a couple of fry which dont seem to have grown at all but i would say 97% of them are a good size already and their tails and pectoral fins are already visible

Im thinking if i should add salt to my bbs eggs so I dont have to stay measuring out the right amount of salt each time. Most of the bbs eggs with salt mixes are 3g of eggs and 47g of salt so if I work with that ratio would it be a good idea?

Not visible in that picture but some fry are starting to grow their ventral fins already and I think they're strong enough and big enough now so I'll raise the water level from 9 and a half inches by another 4 inches till the tank is full over the next few days
I just measured them briefly and all of the fry except for like 2 tiny ones, are 0.25-0.3 inches at 11 days old. I know growth depends on a lot of things but according to the betta fry chart you've probably already seen, they're slightly ahead which is a good thing right?

I can't get any good pictures anymore but there are a lot of fry that have like a blue rim pattern going on
