Alright so little Nix is cruising through life right now as healthy as a horse and I intend to keep it that way. I want to make sure this development for my little him or her is great and that Nix can become a big healthy betta none like the world has ever seen before. So I have been looking into baby nutrition and I know baby Nix isn't a tiny fry anymore but Nix is still a fry and live food I have found works wonders with them. Nix is currently eating crushed pellets like a pro but it seems live food is beneficial in the nutrition for fry. Now I have also been looking into raising brine shrimp and it's now official. I need brine shrimp eggs, I have all I need set up for them all I need is the eggs, even got the right water and aquarium salt for them, it's sort of brackish water if anything that I have all made up. Does anyone know where I can order brine shrimp eggs with high success ratings on their hatching? I'm going to start feeding babies to Nix as soon as possible.
Also microworms look great, does anyone know where I can get frozen or live microworms or anything like them such as vinegar eels? I'm making a big list of food stuffs for Nix so that my baby gets a good mix of meals with protein for it's tiny growing body.
My other question is now, if I got a 2.5 gallon tank now could I keep two babies together? I don't know if they are from the same spawn but the other tiny baby yesterday looked like the same age as Nix and I am tempted to go back and get the other two babies. How old can babies be together? I know the third is a few weeks older than the other two so I would have it in it's own tank but if i do that I also will need homes for the other two babies if they make it and for when they grow up since I only intend to keep Nix for myself. I really hope those babies are still there and that I can work out something to get them.
