Fry Food opinions hot weather

I breeded first time and I'm prepared but need opinions.

Now it's second day and I'm getting ready for hatching :)

I have BBS egs, frozen artmeia and black mosquito larvae
decapsulated artemia

I'm also thinking of using egg yolk liquid mix.

What else I can use? Ho wmuch bbs eggs should I spawn for one batch?

I'M plannig to harvest 2 bottle of bbs in 48 hours. Everyday one fresth bbs bottle.

If one fails, I'll be left with decapsulated artemia and egg yolk.

I cant have microworm here because weather is here 36-38 degrees food of microworms smell like hell in hours :)

What else can I use? I'm planning of smashing some betta flakes in water and making liquid food as well? does it work?

What works for one person may not work for another. The food you mention sounds fine. I've heard different success stories about different food. Variety is probably a good idea. How much to feed varies on how much frys you have to feed. I think important concept here is to avoid polluting the water when feeding. Good luck my friend.

The thing is it's so hot here, so cultures hard to do - smells like a dead rat :)

decapsulated would be fine?

Some fry spawn will eat decap. eggs, some will not. BBS is my #1 recommendation.

so I will put the BBS station on working, if it's get ready fry will get their BBS. and I will have decap and egg yolk as backup plan :)

Btw, lets say for 60 fries, how many grams off BBS eggs should I add to water?

Dont want to hatch too more :)

BBS eggs are so expensive here. 5g of bbs eggs costs me 15bucks :)

Brineshrimpdirect.com Get the 454 grams, it should last you a very long time. Cost maybe 60 dollars total including tax and shipping for premium. It's always better to hatch more than you need. It's a very fast trial and error for knowing how much you need to make. Do not worry about over producing bbs. You will have too much, maybe it will even expire before you can use them all lol. Of course that depends on how many spawns you have, but you only running one so yeah, very long time. My wife threw out my first 454 grams of bbs eggs I placed in the refrigerator because she thought it been sitting there so long, it's garbage lol. Come time for decap, and I was like, WTF lol. "WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?"

Where are you from lol. Just look online, I'm sure you will find a good deal. Try to get the best hatching rates; it makes your life easier though some would argue they couldn't tell the difference between each grade.

If you think the micro cultures stink.. wait til you try the egg yolk. That smells worse when it isn't hot!
