BBS starts at like week two right? I believe thats what I read and I should start the thing at the end of week one. Which gives me a little time to express ship them ha ha. [Though other things say to use BBS earlier? Sigh I'm a little confused] I'm going to check the only family owned fish shop in this areas once they open though just in case. I could have sworn I saw fry foods there.

The filter I have is way too strong for fry. Oh also my walmart has nothing useful in it for fish. At all. It has flakes.

^^ Well I'm glad you are trying. :)

Yeah BBS is week two- but you can actually feed when they get to free-swimming. If you can get your hands on a minroworm culture, that'd be good too!

Alright I'll try to procure one as well. I'm hoping to figure out all this feeding business before they hatch. Also I've read it can take 24-72 hours for the hatching? What is most common in your experience [all you breeding folk]? Do you know what effects time?

Mmm, usually the higher the temp., the faster they hatch. I keep my temp. at 82F which usually gets me fry in 24-34 hours. :)
