Help!!! Baby!!!!!!!!!!

Ok. I have gone through alot of drama with my new tank. I have a betta. Got diamond and neon tetras. Neons were nippy so I returned them. I LIVED my diamonds but were too aggressive for my betta so I gave them to my Dad whi has a tank of various tetras. It's been maybe 2 weeks.
The other morning I thought I saw a baby fish but figured its early, it's dark, I'm just seeing things. NO!! I'm not seeing things. There IS a baby in my tank and I think it's a diamond! I THOUGHT I saw one doing some mating things in the past but I thought they were all males and he was asserting dominance. Anyways I dont know if theres more or how many they have or what to do! I'm SO excited I could cry - dont judge. It's the cutest thing I've ever seen and I just want to protect it!
Help!!!!!! I dont think I can catch it. I'll show pics of the tank and greenery. Will there be more?? Ah!
Ps. Sorry I'm new and dumb and way too excited. Click image for larger version

I had a similar experience with my Boesmani ranbows. I noticed one evening that there were a couple of fry hiding in the hornwort. One survived to adulthood and is now a magnificent colorful male.

Bettas will eat fry of other fish species (and sometimes their own).

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.

If I removed the betta, how long would I need to move him for?
