    2 plus 16 fry
  1. Feeding fry

    Thank you for the reply! That's great, I will crush up some pellets and give that a try. I just want to be able to give them a bit of variety really, so that they are getting everything they need With the brine shrimp, I just watched some tutorials on youtube and did the same. I did get some hatching, but the majority did not and I found it really difficult to then separate the live shrimp from the unhatched eggs. I ended up with loads of eggs going into the fry tank and then the fry were having a hard time finding the shrimp amongst all the eggs! Nightmare!
  2. Feeding fry

    Hello! I currently have 16 fry that are just over 3 weeks old and was hoping someone had some advice about feeding? To begin with I gave them liquifry and some live brine shrimp, but buying the brine shrimp started getting quite expensive so I tried hatching my own... however, I don't know if I was doing something wrong or I just bought rubbish eggs, but I was not very successful at all! So now the fry are on Hikari first bites and frozen daphnia, which they seem to be doing well on, but I was wondering if there was anything else I could give them? And what age can they start eating the pellet food that the adults have? These are my first fry (obviously!) and I really want them to be healthy and grow well
