Hi, I have bred bettas before successfully but cannot seem to raise fry, they always end up dying. I have decided I want to try it again but I'm not interested in quality bettas. I'll try those once I figure what I'm doing wrong. So, is it OK to breed crowntails from Petco? Thanks, in advance. I was feeding them microworms.

If you can get a spawn ,why not?
What were you feeding the fry?

It says he was feeding micro worms NG.
I would try next hatch to do baby brine shrimp. What is your fry tank like?

When the fry are hatched they need incredibly small foods, most people culture some "green water" aka infusoria. You simply put a piece of lettuce into a jar/cup of water and sit it in a sunny window sill until it turns green. Just pour that into the tank once the betta fry are free swimming. Then you can proceed onto newly hatched enriched brine and such.
