I just sprinkle some in lol. A spoon is way to much and is bound to be wasteful.

At this point you don't need much. 1/4 tsp at most.

I notice some of the fry dad misses to pick up they fall and lay motionless. Are they dead or is this normal? Because some when the fall the try swimming back up and some do but others don't.

The part that sucks is I still don't know who's gonna watch over the fish while I'm gone. My parent said my aunt won't want to come over 3 times a day. I am only gone for 3 days. I leave Friday morn and come back Sunday afternoon. I'm hoping I can find a friend or family member that can feed them for me.

My parents don't really care. They are just like what if you feed them on Friday before we leave, and then aunts comes to feed the once on Saturday and then u can feed them once on Sunday when we get back. I'm not sure how that would work though. Would they be good or would I most likely lose most of them.

They really do need to be fed at least two times a day... Do you know anyone near you besides your aunt that you trust in your house? You could get your aunt to come once on Saturday and the other to come later on Saturday... What time will you get back on Sunday? Fry being still at this stage is normal. They probably aren't dead. I have to ask, didn't you know you would be leaving in a week when you spawned?

Yes we knew. But it wouldn't be any better because I still have 2 more tourneys after. And if I waited till after the next one. The other would be a month later, so at about 4 weeks old fry. But I would be gone for 5 days so I though it would be easier for it to be done earlier but for 2-3 days opposed to 5 days that a keeper has to come over.

Good. The spawn is doing fairly well. I am feeding mw and bbs 3 times a day. Not too big of a fry turnout. Probably 25 maximum. I've counted 15 most at a time but I know some are hiding. They are 6 days old. Easy for me to keep track as they we born on may 1st. I'm hoping my aunt will be able to watch them this weekend and feed them min of 2 times per day. I ame gone Friday morning till Sunday afternoon.
