Fry Food

Thanks in advance.
Hello Monk...

Unless you're breeding rare fish with special nutrient requirements, then save a little and get frozen food at the pet store (LFS). I feed my fry frozen brine and mysis shrimp, bloodworms, krill and plankton. The frozen should have two ingredients: the frozen animal and water. This is the most nutritious. I feed every few hours and the little ones grow very quickly.

Just a thought.
