Hmmm this is very interesting. I used the first bites along with BBS when I started weaning them off the BBS and they are still eating it now at almost 3 months old along with other dry foods. I didn't think to only use the first bites, perhaps I'll try it next time...

I guess I can be everyone's test subject then lol I'll document everything in a spawn log so other people can try it if they want. Also we can see then if the growth rate is any different. Hopefully I can raise them as well as the breeder and get the same results.

I have an unopened packet of Hikari First Bites, dated for 2013. First one to PM me gets it @ no cost.

I bought it in case I got guppy fry, but the female died and that was that. Like to see it put to good use...

That's a little info on the Atisons Betta fry starter

I also heard you can use an air stone to siphon out water without accidentally sucking out fry.

Hmm that's interesting....I would assume that without live food some of the bettas would rather starve than eat it. I might try this sometime but I would definately have backup MW and BBS, possibly VE, just incase they don't like it.

I think having backup food is a good idea.

They also sell a two types of daphnia, I wonder if fry would like the smaller one when their a little bigger....
