There is inforensia in the tank and I have frozen bbs. I am hoping to find some more food for them but my nearest pet store is an hour and a half away from me.

:) Good! You can also feed them egg yolk for the 1st week (that's what I do) and then I feed them BBS until their big enough to eat mosquito larvae or diced bloodworms.

How do you feed them the egg yolk? Just rub some hard-boiled off into their tank?

Yep! You just hard-boil an egg, let it cool, hulk out the yolk, dip your finger into some tank water, rub your finger on the yolk, and then dip your finger back into the tank. :)

Easy peasy =] I guess I'm wondering how you sort of measure the amount feeding? I'll be using sponge filters and snails to clean up excess but I was still wondering how you've guess-timated the amount to use in the past?

mmm I just fed them about 2-3 finger-tips worth of the stuff 2x's a day. They'd pick off the bottom as well, so you really don't have to feed a whole lot. I also just siphoned off the bottom every evening after the last feed cuz it gets pretty gross really quickly. >:P

I can't wait to see the babies!!! Veiltails have a special place in my heart! I've seen a couple people on forums who want to start breeding veiltails for show again. There was a thread about it on the IBC yahoo group as well a few months back. And it made me want to try breeding veiltails for show too, I mean if enough people do it they'll have to let them back in the shows right? I dream of creating a line of fancy marble VTs

I took him out today, he was no longer interested in the nest. The babies are swimming around the tank. I would take pics but they are small so I don't think they will come up on the pic. Plus I can't find my camera, I have no clue where it is.
