I am just going to keep em going with what they got at this moment. When they get to about dime size, I may try to tweak a couple things. I have some more questions but I'm going to start a new thread when I get around to it.

BBS is always (imo) the highest protein / best thing starting out.
Mine continue to get BBS until almost dime size but above pea size I start adding crushed flake. How I handle angelfish fry support is they get fed twice a day (AM,PM). Introducing the flake I pinch, thumb/forefinger, rub/crush it to powder then 3-5 minutes later follow up with the BBS.

I don't think starvation food shifts are wise.

shloken38 Crushing the flakes into a powder usually works. Eventually they will get hungry enough to eat anything, at which time they will eat the flakes......and like it!

How can I train my fry to eat flake food?

Hello sled, whoops I mean fish gods! (I feel like cool runnings with this crazy weather on the east coast)

My question is fairly simple. How do I get my lil angelfish fry to eat flake or even golden pearls (I have almost every size). I have noticed they have became rather picky in only eating live brine. They spit out any other type of flake or the golden pearl food. My first hatch of fry are just shy of a month old. I have a much larger group of fry a week behind them so now 3 weeks old. Thanks for the help fish gods!
