im so jealous your fish will eat boiled egg yolk. you should really consider powered food! both the powdered food and egg yolk are similar in color and consistency. you should have no problems making the transition.

i bought Hikari First Bites yesterday but didnt have much luck feeding. im gonna reduce the brine shrimp to starve the fish so they will eat the powered stuff. next time i breed, it's gonna be powered stuff from the start.

They won't eat powdered stuff. They're only interested in small moving things, they'll ingore the powdered stuff until they get older. I'm surprised they're eating the yolk. I dunno. I gotta get money before I feed other stuff. The yolk and bbs seem fine right now. I run two hatchery's. I start them at 5:30 am & pm so I can feed at 10:30 am & pm.

the powered stuff and egg yolk look identical (to me). maybe your fish will be able to tell the difference but its worth a try. hikari first bites is relatively cheap... less than $5 i think. you should definitely replace it for egg yolk.

Hmm if I can get some money I can probably get my lfs to order some for me. The lady is super nice and if she can get it, she'll get it for me. Just need money first.

Sorry I haven't been on much. Been busy lately. But the babies are doing good. I moved them to the floor, because eventually I'll be putting the stand for the 50 gallon in my room and I wanted to get them outta the way. There's maybe 10 of them. And they're getting big. I did take pictures a few hours ago but I haven't edited them yet. I'll post them tomorrow. Can't wait for you to see them.

Kay here's the new pics. Yeah, there's alot. lol. Still, I can't get them unblurry. But they are much bigger, which is super exciting. Maybe next week I'll be able to get clear pictures of them, I hope so. And what's really cool is that when you look really close at the babies, you can see the ends of their tails, and see that they're puffing out at the ends. But you can't see it in the pictures.





























Hope you find them just as cute & as interesting as I do!!
