I have my flake food in a small tupperware container. I feed the adults then just mash it with my finger a bit to feed the fry.

I attempted using a zip lock bag but that became a mess as I mix the crushed flake with water and use a small plastic syringe to deliver food to my fry.

Oh man I'm picturing my ocellatus on caffeine... haha no thanks! :D

The mortar and pestle isn't a bad idea. Flaked brine shrimp kind of smells and getting it under my finger nail isn't that enjoyable.

Yeah, NLS Grow is good. For new fry, if I don't have baby brine, I'll crush Grow with a spoon in a bowl. Have yet to try NLS Small Fry Starter, which is like a powder.
