How do people get their fry switched over onto dry foods? I am hopeless at this. Even when I starve my fry for several days, the spoiled things never want to make the switch.
I have some NLS fry formula (it's like a powder) and I have been trying to get my biggest killifish fry to take it. The problem is, as soon as they eat it they spit it right back out. They don't even have it in their mouth long enough to get a taste.
Their parents are like addicted to their NLS pellets and as soon as they see the container coming they sit and wait at the surface. I was hoping their fry might be the same.
Gets darn expensive feeding live/frozen all the time.
My persephone are the only smaller wilds I have that will eat pellets. My rutilans used to be very good and take them too but they have gotten stubborn in their old age.
So can't wait to get my hands on a pair of Aphyosemion striatum. I have had their tank waiting for a couple weeks now. It was just irritating the wholesaler only got females in with the last import.
This is my fish rack as it presently stands. Everything except my three killifish tanks live on there. I hate seeing all the cords running everywhere it just looks so messy. When I get my proper racks downstairs I am going to run PVC pipe off a high-powered air pump so I don't have tubing everywhere, and use flaps to hide the lights and equipment cords.
