Well, I would advise that you strictly follow what you've probably read. You must change some of the water daily. I tried to breed my bettas in March. I mistook some mysterious little creatures for the fry, so I put brine shrimp in days before they hatched. The tank got dirty very fast because I thought I could go without the water changes for longer than advised. I had 67 to start with, I have none now. I got one to last several months, but when I changed the water he died of shock. I also lost both of the parents to my male opaline gourami. Don't make any of the mistakes I did. You have to be patient with everything or you'll end up with no fry at all. Also, never put a blue gourami with a betta, especially if they're both males. You may have seen other people have success but it's really not worth the risk.
During spawning, the female may appear to eat some of the eggs. She's most likely not. She'll spit them up into the nest. Also, don't forget that the fry will need to be fed very frequently. Just don't overfeed them.
