    Powdered egg yolk, powdered flake food might work

    Awesome! I really liked the extreme macro shot. I don't know if it's the reflection of the parent/s or the actual baby bettas that I'm looking at. Hoping for the latter option though. Way cool!

    i woke up and the eggs were just laid today. the little things are just each individual reflection inside each bubble. the eggs are just white. i will take shots everday though if you guys would like to watch the eggs mature... i think its pretty awesome

    will be too large for betta fry as they are so small. Infusoria's the way to go, but a culture should have been started already fro them.

    Also if you can capture a shot of the male actually squeezing the eggs from the female it would be awesome for people who have never witnessed it.8)Also don't forget to remove the female when she is done laying or the male will kill her.

    Have they hatched yet? I hope they're doing well. It must be hard to raise the fry when they're so little. Keep us updated, please.
