I'm feeding them frozen brine shrimp, frozen glassworms, frozen daphnia, frozen tubi worms, chopped up frozen bloodworms, and I tried New Life Spectrum small fish formula. They are not interested in the NLS small fish but I think that they are probably too small for the NLS betta formula. I could try crushing a pellet to see what happens. I'm also doing daily 100% water changes.

NIB says she was feeding them Atison's betta pro, frozen bloodworms and frozen tublifex several times per day. They take the Atison's betta happily :)

These guys are all so beautiful. Smellsfishie, Fuego is STUNNING!

I don't think I saw Atison's Pro at my LFS so I will have to check online. Thanks for posting what you guys are feeding, that helps me a lot. I am going to go pick up more frozen food soon. They LOOOOVE the bloodworms... :D and happily eat the crushed pellets. My one little chica, unnamed, is back to being tipsy and not looking too hot. The others are all happy swimming crazy... Not sure what's going on with her. I am going to put her into a small heated tank. The others are in critter keepers, with 2 in my community tank (separated in a "breeder").

Smellsfire,

Did I send you the fry care guide. If not, send me an email and I'll send it to you. They will definitely grow a lot faster now that they are jarred. There was just no way I could jar all of them. The males, grew the fastest while jarred. And that's when their color started to pop as well. Thanks again.

Today I spotted the egg spot on my darker one. I'm thinking about naming her Stormy. I cannot tell whether there is an egg spot for the fire fins one, who is either Weasley (Ginny?) or Ginger. Her/his ventrals are shorter so perhaps Weasley is a girl.

YAY. This part of raising fry is the most exciting! IMO
