Fry question

How to know if your days old frys are eating or not? they're suppose to have white dots if im feeding them MW and black dots if they're eating micro organisms right? so If there is no dots then they are not feeding? Anyone have pictures of these stomachs?

You can't tell with micro organisms. Unless you have REALLY good vision.

When you switch to BBS it's much easier to see.

Cool

Yes, it's hard to even see them.... Infusorians? You can't tell. Micro worms? you might see their tummies get a little bigger with a light color.

How many days? Really the first week their needs are few as they still have some of the yolk sac left that they are feeding on, but they also start "testing the waters" for outside food.

Have you tried a few bbs? Perhaps they can eat it, perhaps not, but you can tell when they do eat them as their bellies turn pink.

Youtube has plenty of vids of babies eating mw and bbs...

Jeff.

These are just examples and not necessarily the way I feed.

(I use the finger method and just swish it in the water....)

And I"m sure there are lots more!
