Do you think they will all inherit the orange/black color from their parents? Or is it possible to get colors from the parents' previous generations if there were any?

I am also in the process of hatching brine shrimp for them, about 3/4 or more look as though they have hatched,
but when I filter the bbs and clean them, is it ok if I can't separate all the eggs?
Im not a brine shrimp hatcher, so I can't help you there...

So I found out the runt of the litter is a "belly slider". Says to give em a few weeks and to cull if there are no improvements :( Poor guy. Anyways, the fry just seem to spit out any excess bbs shells that got into the tank. Making a new DOY hatchery now ;)

So, I culled the belly slider, he didn't seem to be growing hardly any and was never at rest :( So he went as a snack to my HM Betta. Debating whether or not to cull the one with scoliosis

So my first batch of 15 is now 1 month and 9 days old.
Momma just gave birth to her 2nd batch of appx 20 today, not a single bellyslider this time, they all seem healthy so far :)
