@andakin: maybe try this Brine Shrimp Corral? xD I've read good things about it :P it would make hatching them easier...

oh wow! thanks for the link. the hatchery looks very promising. i wonder how well it actually works. too bad my mind is set on avoiding live food at all cost. i will probably start the babies on Hikari pellets in a few days.

vikki: sorry for talking about my stuff in your thread.

lol it's fine. And that bbs hatchery looks great. I'm bookmarking that so if I get the money I can get it.
So this is how I'm going to do it, because it seemed like the babies liked the yolk a bit.
I'm gonna feed them bbs in the morning and at night. Then feed a little yolk in the afternoon. Just to keep them a little plump. And soon, when I get the money I will start them on some frozen stuff.

sounds like a great plan! a mix in diet is probably healthier.

i wonder how big the fish need to be before they can handle the frozen goodies. what do you have planned in terms of frozen food? my pet store only carries brine shrimp and blood worms.

I don't know yet what my local store has, I'll have to call up there. But I'll probably get them whatever frozen stuff I can, so they have a variety. So probably some shrimp, worms, crushed up pellets. I want as wide a variety as I can get. I'm probably only gonna use the yolk for another week or so, until it seems like they cant get at it anymore.

Yeah they are. I feel better knowing they'll munch on that too. I just have to clean the tank more. It's okay though, I'd rather have healthy babies.
