In the last three nights I have stripped 2 msobo deeps and have 26 fry. I have been mashing spirulina flakes, and nls pellets alternately, making a paste and feeding them. How much should I feed them? Is this an adequate diet?
I'm assuming that you can over feed them so I want to make sure I feed them enough to thrive but not too much.
Looking for advice

It`s pretty hard to overfeed the fry, but you can overfeed the tank and pollute it. I would handle this by regularly vacuuming up the bottom of the fry tank.

Generally, I feed my fry 3 times a day, and do 50-75% water changes every other day. The food is fine IMO, but I don't think you need to make a paste, just grind it up real fine.

I feed "a bunch" two times a day and vacuum daily. I use a coffee grinder to grind up food.
