Not even over feeding. Microworms sink. Fry will eat them off the bottom and will search for food there. Some will end up with missing ventrals.

Sounds fair. For the record they are good if you watch what you do. BBS is the same, be careful and don't overfeed and you should have no issues.

I agree.
Plus how you feed them.
Bbs make sure no egg shield n rainse will
Micro clean b4 putting in the tank.
Scrape the edge n dump them in water
Use a eye drop to get the worm
Usually filter the water a few time b4 I use the eye drop
What temp u set your tank at since u say u have it higher then other.

I get them grown in 3 to 3 1/2 months. Good food, clean warm water, and lots of space is all there is to it.

Not much different then.
3-4 month to adult size
Good food with clean warm water will make the fry grow

10-14 hours

U just read this whole thread and I'm glad you guys can agree to disagree. :) I have a question, though. Can you feed fry a mixture of foods instead of strictly micro worms, bbs or whatever or can you give them a variety?

I dont mix the food.
So can't give u any feed back on it.
I've just switch the diet to size.
If the fry out grow one type of food I just switch to another.
With good clean warm water n bit size food
The fry usually take a week or two to switch to a new diet.
In about 6-8 week my fry can eat whole black worm already
