you can slowly introduce dry food when they hit about a month old.
but i've found out that some fish just refuse to eat flake

Prefectly normal. larger or more frequent waterchanges should keep the size difference to a minimum as there won't be a build up of the pheromone larger fry produce to stunt the others.

I've heard of alot of breeders using the first bites so they should be fine. The package says it can be used from day one so I suppose you could start using it whenever you like? My fry start off with dry food(decap BSE) so I the only fry i raise are fine with them, no picky "live food only" babies.

I add a gallon a day until my ten gallon is just short of full(about 8-9gallons). Then I do 2-one gallon water changes.

thanks bambi for your reply! I've got the tank full and I'm doing regular WCs now. The fry are doing well!
They are going to be one month old this weekend. I've seen the larger, more developed fry going to the surface for air. YAY! They are coming along so nicely, I couldn't be happier
Once they get larger, I'll post a few pics. They're not much to look at right now lol
