The OP could have been new to breeding, not new to fish. I'm thinking he/she was just trying to figure out a healthy substitute for the babies. I think, instead of assuming the OP is new to fish in general, we should ask probing questions, like "Did you just buy the fish? How long have you been a fish owner? Have you bred before?" and also answer his/her question. Then educate in a friendly way. I understand breeding takes a lot of time and patience, and I think we are all jumpy due to a certain troll from a little while ago. We can't just assume everyone who acts like that IS like that. I also understand we care about the fry and don't want to see them suffer simply because of someone's ignorance, so we try to make them UNDERSTAND by using CAPITALS as EMPHASIS, but it comes across as yelling. I know I would be scared away.
And that's my two cents.
