You don't have to feed them until they are free swimming. And then not for a couple of days... I give mine a small amount of mw when they are free swimming just in case they want a snack, but they still have much of their egg yoke sac still feeding on that.

Well, I feed them as much as they will eat. When first free swimming after a few days I add a touch of micro worms.

After a week or so of free swimming I will add some live baby brine shrimp.

If you add too many, just be prepared to vacum them up... You'll learn eventually how much they will eat.:)
