They are extremely tiny when first hatched, so insuforia (microscopic) is best at first, put lettuce or grass in a jar or bucket and let it sit for at least a couple of weeks (too late for you unfortunately). BBS (baby brine shrimp), microworms, decapsulated brine shrimp eggs (one of my favorites). The first few days they will survive on their own egg sacks, so that will give you at least a little time to gather other foods. I've never tried it, but some feed egg yolk (hard boiled, tiny bit mixed into water and fed to the fry).
Best of luck to you and your fry!

Liquidfry is for cultures and making fry food.. would read the sticky in this section of the forums about feeding them.

Congratulations! Now the fun begins, I'm glad you got the heater, that is extremely important.

Most breeders use a sponge filter, and set the filter at the lowest setting (if it can be set).
