Help!! Betta fry!!

So my betta fish Uma and Tommy finally spawned. There were about 200 eggs and 3 days later all I can find is ONE! Betta fry that is out of reach from Tommy. Tommy is trying to get the fry and I think he ate the rest of them. I made a mini kinda tank for him with some bubbles from Tommy's nest. Should I put the fry there??

Sorry, I am a little confused about what a mini kinda tank is. What sort of set-up did you have for all the fry?

Haha I took the dad out an filled the tank and found MANY more fry
The tank is a 5 gallon it has lots of moss but the fry just hang at the top of the tank.

Do you have places for them to go once they get a little bit bigger? Raising bettas is pretty hard work. I definitely do not envy you. But I bet the fry are super cute.

If you can put up pictures, that would be great. I have never seen bettas any younger than the ones commonly sold in stores. Keep up updated on how it goes.

So CUTE! Yeah, that one is pretty light, but I can still see it. I might have missed it if you hadn't said there were 2!
