Thank you, Viva! I have no worries about him eating the bigger shrimp. I was surprised when he ate a huge blood worm. I guess I had read somewhere that the adult brine were less nutritious than the bbs. He is already eating NLS small fish formula, daphnia and bloodworms on a rotation.

Yeah then he should definitely be okay! I rescued a tiny female about 10 days ago and I still can't get her to eat pellets. She's been eating frozen brine shrimp and frozen blood worms like crazy though!

Lizzy 1 month and a half

Look what I found! (Picture of her bubble nest)
Thanks to everyone's help Lizzy has grown from a fry to a toddler. I got her 6/1/13 as a fry and now she has color and blows bubbles.

I'm currently setting uo a 10 gal. Tank. It's running with the filter. I'm waiting for a couple more plants to be delivered. I hope to have her in her new home by the first week in August.

Isn't it great! I love watching her grow. This forum really helped me. I have no experience with fish and so far so good. Good luck with your baby!

Thank you, TexasRose. Tony Stewart is doing awesome!

Does anyone feed their babies the Omega One Buffet Pellets? It has some awesome protein in it. I think I would have to break it apart a bit as it might be too big? He already loves the NLS small fish formula.
