When is the best time to switch Infusoria

My quick question is when do you switch over from infusoria to bbs ? I have no microworms on hand just infusoria and bbs ? Just a rough estimate would be helpful or any other tip thank you !!

I know of some people who use bbs since they are free swimming and that's all they use till pellets, although I wouldn't recommend this as it's been thought to have been linked to sbd problems I'm sure you can just switch whenever you want. And do you need any micro worms or vinegar eels? I have a ton extra and could send you some for like 7 bucks I guess?

I'd make the switch as soon as the majority of fry are large enough to take BBS. Supplementing with infusoria will help until the runts are also able to take BBS.

Only risk in feeding BBS is overfeeding, as it can cause issues with the swim bladders of your fry.

Thanks Mo and LIttlebettafish for the advice. I will switch over to BBS next week because this coming Friday will be exactly 1 week that they started free swimming. This should give the rest of the fry time to grow. Mo I don't need any microworms or vinegar eels thank you for the offer.
