LF microworms, white worms, infusoria culture

So my bronze cories bred over the weekend and the eggs have hatched today. I started my infusoria culture but I can't really see any in it yet, it may take a few days too many to have a culture.

Anyone has any of the smallest worm culture for the fry that I can get my hands on? I am willing to pay as well.

Or some infusoria to speed up my own culture. Also looking for grindal worm culture.

TIA

Sorry for the bump, and belated congrats. I can't believe you're still in the hobby! Any luck with your babies?

For future reference, you can grow infusoria with a couple of submerged dried leaves and warmth and sunlight. If you have houseplants, tropical leaves take much longer to break down and have fewer tannins and can generally be put directly into the tank. It'll still take a week for the good stuff to grow though. I was able to keep my various fry alive this way.

Not today

I was out of the hobby for a few years Just got back after I moved to a new place late 2018. I don't keep shrimps anymore for some reason they can't survive in this new place. Must be something in the pipes lol. Even when I used Poland spring water and remineralized with Seachem Equilibrium...

The babies didn't survive, oh well. I didn't have a place in the apartment where it was warm enough and had direct sunlight.

But noted for the future. Welcome back!
