So i have 6 fry in a little 3 gallon tank for now set up with heater and sponge filter.
Can you guys give me a basic run down on when to start feeding these guys. They still have there little yolk sack but they swim around freely.
What can i feed these guys?
I got flake, pellets,frozen brine shrimp and beef hearts. Im assuming beef hearts are out of the equation.
Thanks for any help.
A 10 gallon tank will come soon if they survive.

Crush up the flake and feed 4X daily. Change water daily.

I mix with water and pour from a cup. The whoosh gets their attention and they find the food quickly after a day or two.

Do i need to wait a few days to start feeding. I did some research on raising them and i kept reading to not feed while they still had there yolk sacks. Whats your opinion on that?
