CONGRATULATIONS :D. can they get out of the breeder net? if not you might want to put them in now, unless your tank is heavily planted. i usually leave my fry in my grow out tank (which i dont have anymore) for 4 months and by then they are usually just a bit smaller then adult length (i wait until my betta wont even think of them as food), but when they cant be eaten by the other fish in your main tank. good luck :D

yea they will hide alot, i think only coming out to get food but then hiding again until they can come out without being eaten by the others. my first bunch of fry hide in the gravel but in my main tank they are usually eaten and the survivers are caught by me, and moved.
