Tpocicat told me to put nylon stocking over the siphon. It helped me a lot so I don't suck up fry much.
Thanks, they seem to come up after 2 hours of the lights being on, so I just wait to feed them then. Although I do the same thing with the food.. I just spread it around. Besides I clean the tank every day twice a day so I get what ever food they don't eat back and replace with clean water. I tried just feeding in groups but with there being such a small amount of fry in a big tank I find that some seem to stay by them self's so I figured better safe than sorry and make sure every one is fed. :)
I will probably do the same with the siphon when they get bigger. I'm using a turkey baster right now because im to scared to use anything else. (im such a chicken lol)
