Not a problem, the longer the conditioning the better, but at least 2 weeks- unless they have been well cared for and healthy to start and then a week-a good varied diet and if you have live foods to add all the better-small amount more frequently.
I have never had luck in getting the fry to eat anything but live foods unless I kept the male with them and he will teach them to eat non-live foods.
Depending on the male-some can be left with their fry and be just fine other will eat them...so be careful if you keep the male long term with the fry.
Hey bloo97...hangin in there......overall just fine...thanks for asking...how are you?
weluvbettas-only way to tell is if you give it a try, never know about these guys, make sure they have a way to get out of his site...lol....and have a back-up plan. You may need to increase your water changes a bit-just a extra 50% water only change a week should do.
If you moved the minnows to the 7g that would work and then you could lower their water temp too and maybe get a nice colony going with a species only tank.
And in the 10g by adding 3 more females to the 1 female would work and you may want to bump that number up to make 6 females since it is heavy planted, still need a back up plan...anything can happen with sorority tanks...I would try and get related females to increase your chances......
