I read the info about BBS on the sticky, as well as other research I have done...
But how much do you need for one average sized batch of fry? I don't want to be wasteful.
If I picked up a medicine syringe from the local vets office, how much food would I need to measure out for approx. 100 fry?
I do not want to overfeed.
Is it true that BBS can cause swim bladder and ventral fin loss? I have heard contradicting information on this such as: "no, it's because the water fouls" or "BBS causes ventral fin loss" "no, microworms is what really causes ventral fin loss" "no, it's unsanitary water conditions that really cause this" etc...
I'm not sure what to believe.
What are your experiences with various fry foods? I want to try BBS because of the high protein, and some breeders swear by it, but I have also heard it is "unnatural" food for them, and can cause problems. Should I just do microworms and do BBS only 2-3 times a week?
What foods should I alternate between, and what are your experiences with different foods at different life stages?
When do I need to begin feeding what? What method worked best for you?
