1. What containers would you recommend to jar the fry once they get agressive?
I've been using plastic party cups floating in the growout tank. I siphone them out everyday and add new water.

2. Like what would be the fry feeding routine over time. ( like when they're this young you feed this etc.)
I keep live plants in the tank so fry can eat microrganisms for as long as they need and I also feed baby brine shrimp. Until four weeks of age this is their diet..then I slowly add Hikari First Bites and then crushed up flake food and every 2 weeks the pieces get bigger.

3. Also I stumpled upon this thing called a Brine Shrimp Corral an automatic brine shrimp feeder. Would these work to feed the fry?
I prefer the old 2 liter bottle with airstone and dumping it through a brine shrimp net. It's a good idea to have 2 hatcheries one started 12 hours after the other.

Thanks for the reply MrV!
The feeding routine was one of my biggest questions.
What kind of method and set up do you use to breed?

I use a 5 or 10 gallon tank half filled with treated water heated at 82 degree F. I use the Small World Corner Filter that's gently bubbling and one secret tip that I never ever tell anyone (just kidding hehe) I don't use aquarium salt at all until after the fry are free swimming and I use Nutrafin Betta Max water conditioner as an addition to Stress Coat and Stress Zyme. I get a spawn everytime I use it :)

Another question, How do you clean the water in the fry tank? Like a regular water change?
