Yeah i wanted to see if i could rais them on pellets and flakes.
I've never used 'live'live food(I don't have a fish room, or even my own room to have a culture, especially one that smells, going). But i've used decap bse and powder foods in the past that really boosted growth.
The down side to the pellets and flakes is that they aren't has high in protein as the decap bse or live foods, so they do grow a little slower.
Also, for seperation.
I do as fallows: Seperate males one they can be sexed. Seperate agressive ones. And if you have one or two that are either half the size of the rest or twice the size ofthe rest, i take them out. Other wise the larger ones stay big and small ones stay small because of the hormones they produce and whatnot.
One the fry are big enough to eat them, frozen blood worms are fine. You might wanna cut a couple up if you feed them though incase some of the fry shy away from bigger worms. try feeding frozen brine shrimp first? see if
they'll eat it.
I'm going to try frozen baby brine shrimp with my fry since they're
small(frozen right after hatching)
I already feed brine shrimp, i have been since two weeks. I put enough bloodworms in so that the smaller fry get it too.
