Suprise Fry

I've been reusing my water from weekly tank cleaning in my plant grow out tank. This afternoon I found fry in the tank from either my danios or neons. I counted 6 so far but it's a nice surprise after last week. I would love any advice on how to raise them properly if anyone is willing to offer. I picked up some fry food from petco and plan to do 10% WC everyday.

Same food as betta fish fry actually. I had accidentally gotten some too, before. Crushed pellets, crushed flakes, egg yolk etc... However the best would be live foods.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

Aww good luck!!
Hikari first bites would be a good start, then move to micro pellets or crushed flakes when they get a little larger.
Just do exactly the same for them as you would betta babies and you should be in great shape.

That's what I got. I fed them a tiny amount today and a couple took a few tries at it. I am up to 8 now. I am pretty sure they are Danios but I will see when they get old enough to show color. My other two females still look heavy but my biggest girl is a lot thinner today.
