Panda lyretail just had babies

I have moved the fry (that I have managed to catch so far) into a little beta bowl. Will they be ok in there if I change the water regularly?
I was just planning to feed them extra flake crushed up as small as I cab get it.
Will that do the trick?
The three I have caught so far are only about 1/4". I will move them back into the big tank ASAP, but I have a female beta that wants to eat the fry real bad. I found them in the first place because she was chasing them.
Any other advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

No the fry need a heated and filtered aquarium
Feed crushed flakes and small foods like bbs and bloodworms

Ya they need to have a filtered tank but be sure they don't get sucked into the filter

Sponge filters work well, but hey need a cycled tank just like he parents do. I have a fry tank with some mystery snails in there to keep the cycle. The fry wont make enough of a bio load to keep a good cycle on the tank.
