Not sure, I just gave my 5 week fry a couple small frozen bloodworms. It was amazing that they actually got it into their belly!! Wow! They also eat an incredible amount of bbs! Little Pigs!!! hehe.

No, still feeding my fry BBS. It would be at least another week or so before mine are ready for grown up food... YMMV.

Live adult brine shrimp are kinda hard to come by here, so I use frozen bloodworms and frozen brine shrimp. I also like to use some flake food even they don't get excited about it as it contains lots more vitamins.

Do you think I should get a sponge filter for the babies in a 20g? Where can I get it for ~$10? I've heard that HMs need pristene water to keep thier fins clean, and even with plants and daily cleans, I think that a cheap filter is really going to improve the fry quality... whadda you think?

So if I got the 10-15g one, what other materials would I need? Ridgid air tubing and an air pump, right?

Mehhee! Just got the 10-15g one! YAY! It will be here ~Thursday! My breeding is coming together! I am also going to get an infuchia culture going in a while so that (even though I am going to have live plants) the babies do not starve. I will feed them that for 2 weeks, according to the website. So, it looks like this:

-Spawn
-Hatch
-Feed Infuchia (2 weeks)
-Feed BBS (7-8 weeks)
-Feed BS (Life)
-Spectrum Pellets (Life)
