IME it takes them a few days but they'll eventually get curious and take a bite. You don't have to worry too much in a big tank like that with those water changes.

My fry seem to adjust very well to Atison Starter.

:) thanks so much MrVampire, I have some attison's food I"ll crush and try them tomorrow! My 3 guppy babies in there are getting really fat, they eat much faster than my other betta babies, maybe it's time to take them out. anywho, time to study

I've started sprinkling decaps when I feed micros to try to get them to associate the two. I have seen some adventurous fry eat some of the decaps, just waiting for the rest to catch up!

Yup I mix it in with their other foods. So I'll have three different foods in the tub at once. I have raised a spawn on Atison Starter and Pro alone but I wouldn't recommend it since I was constantly changing water.

Good luck!

I think I'll do more water changes at the weekend now, been doing 20 gallon changes every day, I think the 40gallon is filled up to 30gallon now ~_~ I am growing muscles
That makes more sense now. I almost forgot that you have hem in a 40 gallon.

Wow that last part really got me to laugh! I swear I think we get stronger when we do water changes. We have to start training our pets to do them for us!

er.... I saw one of my betta baby FLARING (I saw the little transparent flap) today at another and trying to fight him, actually they were both fighting, I had to turn on the sponge filter quickly to distract them.. I saw some aggression yesterday too O.o but they are still only 0.5-0.6 inches, am I suppose to already seperate them when they are only 3 weeks and 3 days old? O.o... gahh should I just seperate the ones that are aggressive? but they still so small !

If I were you I wouldn't separate them so young. Just add in some more live bunch plate that can help others to hide and such. Ive never heard of fry this small flaring already. Wow lateness fish have some kind of bionic gene in them lol.

They sound like they're going to be a handfull when it does come time to separate them. The earliest I've ever separated fry was 2.5 months old and they are usually an inch or so by then.
