lol i read that same thread today but it was a week old by the time i saw it. Well i cultured out some insorsia for my guys but this time i dipped my finger in a bit of egg yolk water then dipped my finger into the inforsia water, so a mix of wigglers and egg yolk, it worked, they accepted the egg yolk much better. The first few days only a couple would eat it but inforsia was overloaded at that time, they had inforsia in their tank, and i was squirting some extra in and then rotating with egg yolk. Im glad they are starting to enjoy the yolk as well. Yellow bellies tonight instead of white! :) The only downside is im paranoid about the yolk so i am daily quickvaccing the bottom, but i guess thats good anyways :P
Earlier today i was feeding oldman and electra their mosquito larvae but i noticed their bucket had these tiny tiny larvae so i took a cup and a net and a coffee filter, put the coffee filter under the net and scooped out a cup, poured it into the net, then the small tiny larvae went through the net and got caught in the coffee filter. I put them with the fry and a couple got eaten pretty fast. I still see a couple in there, maybe those were still too big, but its close! Im thinking about trying bbs tomorrow, they arent a week yet but they hatched 5 days ago, tomorrow will be day 6. Id love to see them eat bbs :))
I was surprised at how tiny BBS is! But Jazz and Alma love it. I use it as a conditioning food because I know how good it is for them. Their colors have been so greatly enhanced since I started feeding it to them! It's awesome.
I had to order some just for this, i couldnt find anywhere with it lol. I used mosquito larvae to condition, 3 feeds a day with tons per feed. Ive got a big plastic garbage bucket full of algae, leaves, larvae and a few snails somehow found their way in. It only sucks when i get bit D;
Better to have too much then not enough, who knows, once jazz is rested he may father 100+ pretty babies :D
I snapped a quick picture of Electra tonight, with flash she looks more blue, the pinks and purples get washed out, some of the white shows blue and green but since its dark i had to have flash on :P Her real life colors are in my icon, such a difference flash makes on her colors, its not doing her justice >=[ But You can see her nipped fins and the white regrowth coming in though. It cant come fast enough, shes too pretty to be nipped!
The missing pectoral is still a nub, i dont think it will ever grow in fully, i got her that way, but its grown some since i got her.
