Feeding mbuna fry

5710 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  lovemycichlids805
I Got a batch of mbuna fry,

and I hear that feeding them newly hatched brine shrimp is the best. I dont have access to this now,
but i do have spirulina flakes. Would that suffice if I grind it up and offer that?
Or do they need something more nutritious? I cant imagine something more nutritious than spirulina, but can anyone offer advice?

baby brine shrimp is great, they go straight for it. If you dont have access to it just try feeding them what you give to the adults, except crush it down first. I find crushed pallets to be more successful than crushed flake because the pellets, even when crushed, still sink down to the fry. They're often too scared to swim to the surface for the flake, or at least that's been my exp. :thumb:
