Sorry to hear you couldn't save them.
How do we get fry? We watch and wait, and when they are near birthing, we separate them. It is best to put them in their own tank entirely. If you can't convince your parents to let you separate her, I don't think there is too much chance of survival of the fry...

Oh neat! It must be so exciting for you to know that at least one survived. If I were you I'd feed him even if you don't see him. Crushed flakes would do fine.

You are going to breed bettas? I'm a betta breeder... In what size tank do you plan on spawning them? What tail type is the pair? I'd love it if you'd PM me and tell me more about your breeding project!
