Yup!
By the time they have been free swimming for 4 days they need to have had their first 50%. Then every day there after.

Before day 5 they should have a bit of water added each day too. Like a cup every 4-6 hours or whenever you are able to do.

Oh thanks! For the first two weeks I was adding water and cleaning anything dirty out of the tank. I've been doing three 50% water changes today, and took the rest of the fry into new fresh water. And I've been feeding them 4 times a day from now on, thanks so much!

When theyre little (first 2 weeks) how do I put freshwater without stirring then up? Or will they be okay?

Just pour a cup in at a time a bit slowly and put your hand in the flow to break it up a little

Yes wc is the main problem. I suggest 60 -70% per day after week 1 to week 12 or until jarred with a 10g. Also this allows you to feed heavy during this time. Do not gut stuff them or you will see sbd pop up in your fry. This is why frequency of feeding is key because fry can digest food at a high rate. In weeks 2-6 I like to feed 5-8 meals everyday. New hatch bbs with a hufa supplement works well and at about 4 weeks to introduce a good juvi pellet like nls grow to the variety of frozen food now in the diet. Live food in first 6 weeks is very important.
