Feeding Apisto fry...

Postby jwm2k3 » Mon Jun 01, 2020 9:04 am

I've got 1 Male triple red and 4 females.

Found some eggs, they hatched, got a few fry, now trying to get them to eat...

Any live food I've found is too big for the fry. I have Northfin Fry Starter that my African cichlid fry LOVE, but the Apistos dont touch it....

Has anyone had success ordering baby brine from eBay or Amazon?

Thanks :)

Also, is there an Apistogramma forum or site elsewhere that may have more activity? Tried looking around but didnt find much.

Thanks.

Well there is apistogramma.com, not sure how active it is though.

Microworms work well; you can buy starter cultures on Amazon. :thumb:

I feed my Victorian fry Arctic Krill Meal Powder for about a month. I'm sure apisto would do just fine with that. After a month, I crush up regular flake food for them.

Baby brine shrimp should work fine.
