Lul, did your mom pick out the too big filter, I know if I sent my mom she would come back with like a filter cartridge or something. I have to go get what I want myself or I dont get it

The live plants should provide enough for them to eat for a little while.

As for bbs, check your local pet stores and see if they have any eggs you could hatch them yourself, if they dont you might have to get some adult brine shrimp and try to breed them, I dont know how hard that is though.

Petsmart may have brine shrimp hatchery kits, but I'm not sure. My book says that by day five, they can eat bbs and microworms.

My book says that the dust at the bottom of packages of dried food and commercial liquified fry preparations can be used. You have got to find something to feed those babies if they won't eat the egg yolk. Make sure its smashed up small enough for them to eat it and mix it with water, then drop it into the tank with an eyedropper.

Some have attached their selves to the plant thats in the tank so they might be eating the infurosia

To clean the tank, use an airline tubing attached to an airstone to avoid sucking up fry, I've converted from infusoria to microworms and bbs, they're easier to make.

hope this helps!

They need to be fed every day, 2-3 times a day.
