Well I love my king betta and he doesn't get any attention when hes not in my main tank, but that's also a platy breeding tank, I do plan to vacuum out the fry soon as they're born but would he eat them all by the time I noticed that they're born? Or can I move him back to the tank where he rules

If you are set on keeping the fry I would probably move him, or use a breeder box for the female platy. I'm not certain that he would eat the fry or not but no point in taking chances.

Depends on the male. Some will, some won't. Personally if you want platy fry, as Summer said, move the platy to a box while she releases. My favs are the ones that hang on the tank, not the ones that goes in.

Why not put the betta in the box while the platy gives birth?

because usually after the platy gives birth, they go on an eating spree and will eat their own fry. Safest place for the little ones is away from anything else in the tank unless its planted, and well fed.
