Today my pair of bettas spawned and there are about 50-80 eggs in the nest.The father is a delta/plakat i think and the mom is a vt.Iv'e always failed in raising the fry so maybe this time i may suceed.:-D

All males eat eggs. There's no way around it. He's going to eat some that may fungus or may not have been fertilized.

The father is a pk,dt or hmpk(tail keeps growing and shrinking,lol) the mother is a vt i think.

Do the fry stay to the top all day?because i fed mw and i'm afraid they won't be able to eat it.

They often stay around the top, but when food is introduced, they will follow the food. If they are healthy, don't worry, they will eat as long as the food wiggles like MW will.
