start hatching bbs now, they can eat it at 4 days old. u can also TRY hikari first bites and frozen bbs. but it might take a few days for them to take to it.

yes Swim bladder problems can happen with BBS but if you feed the right amount and try not to over feed it should be ok. but some fry are little pigs and will over eat. The ones that over eat might get the problem.

Oh wonderful! I have a spawn going that is just hatching, not my first choice of parents, but I am happy that I actually got a good spawn. The fry are hanging down vertically from their bubbles. There are pics in the spawn log forum:
