    Oh no....good luck....hopefully he will settle down and accept them...but I would keep a close eye on them.....sounds like you may need to cup some fry soon or get a bigger tank and plant it up......

    My fry are really small for there age. I had a lot on earlier this year so they did not get many water changes 4 a week. but they are full of color so I have guess the gender. But I think the females are the smallest ones.

    You mean adding the female fry to the male Betta and white clouds....I don't see why not...depending on how big they males never seem to bother the betta fry...but the betta fry love picking on the adult male long one of my males in a half grown fry tank and they shredded his fins...big would watch them and make sure he won't eat them.....

    Hello! I have a male , a very calm one. Living with 6 white clouded minnow fry which are small. I was wondering if I would be able to add some of the small female betta fry that are getting picked on in the fry tank. The tank that the male lives in is stuffed with silk plants.

    You never know...these guys can surprise you can do is all you can do....also depending on how old she is too....rare, but it can happen is egg bound-looks just like dropsy symptom and they usually do not recover.......

    Also, you can go up to 3tsp/gal-on the Epsom salt if needed-just do it slow 1tsp at a time every 12-24h to tolerance ....

    You can also try broad spectrum antibiotic...I don't use them so I can't recommend anything.....

    good luck.....
