Food for middle-sized fry

I am about to begin setting up all my spawning stuff, and am wondering if there is anything specific I need to be feeding the fry when they are middle-sized. Will they be too big for BBS and yet too small for adult foods? Is there something special I need to get them?

You'll need to get them frozen stuff: cyclops, daphnia, brine shrimp...stuff like that. You'll have to mush it up really fine with a knife, then put it in some warm, decholrinated water. Then put it in the tank.

Ok thanks. We have a trip to Petco planned on Friday, do they carry those things? I'm pretty excited, hopefully pick up some new fish as well!

You could probably crush up pellets too. But the things that Vikki mentioned is probably more nutritious.

I have found that frozen brine shrimp crushed and frozen blood worms are my middle size ones favorite.

I would recommend grating frozen blood worms and then thawing them and they feeding them that because they are high in fat a helps build health bettas
