Adjustable heaters are good, get one from petsmart or petco.
fooswise:
daphnia,banana worms, micro worms, decap bse, for the first couple days egg yolk, vinegar eels....xD

Less about age, more about size. once it can fit in the fry's mouth you're good.

when my fry are large enough I also feed cut up black worms.

First, order a heater instead of getting ripped off at petsmart or petco. In my experience petstore heaters aren't as good and way more expensive. You want a 75-100w adjustable heater for a 10g spawn tank.

BBS is the best fry food IMO. You can also feed vinegar eels, microworms, etc.

You feed them as soon as they are free swimming...

I love vinager eels for the first week. They can live in the fresh water for a week and are small enough for fry. They also wiggle really well to get the frys attention.

Just make sure you have a few batches set up before you even spawn them. I did not know I would go threw so many. I have 3 batches set up and that was almost not enough.

Now that I have the hang if bbs and my fry are 13 days old I have only been feeding that. I am also waiting for the vin eels to repopulate.

A bit late but would like to add this.
This had powdered food, IAL, worm cultures and pipetts. It's the same starter kit used when I started breeding(minus the fry crack, think that's new xD).
$18 for the kit and $6 for shipping, the guy is great with answering any questions too.
