Well I watched them for awhile and they were having a hard time getting it right, so I left on a trip for about 5 hrs and come back to this!!!!

WE HAVE EGGS!!!!!

I'm going to answer the question here...

For feeding them, green water is useless, but infusoria is not. It sounds like what you inadvertently made was infusoria (get out a penlight and shine it in the culture, are there tiny, drifting particles?). I would feed bbs right off the bad if you don't have a banana/micro/Walter worm culture. Are there live plants in the tank?

there are little specks but am I supposed to see them move? and no live plants right now I have some bulbs that have been growing outside in a container for almost a month now just starting roots about 2-3 inches. I have the bbs eggs and have made them before but wasn't sure if they were going to be to big for the fries first meal other than their yolk sacks.
