When and what to feed a few fry
So, my fathead minnow eggs hatched this time last week. They seem happy and healthy after a week of just infusoria (already in the tank). They are darting around the tank and have yet to feed on the copepods, so they still have a bit of growing to do.
When should I start feeding them? I bought a little brine-shrimp kit but the packages make way too many (only about 4 fry survived, for some reason). So if I culture the brine shrimp, could I just feed the rest to my betta, and other fish (minnows, danios)? Or will they be too tiny for them?
Alternatively, I made some of my home-made fish food (very finely ground) from spinach, carrots, peas, egg (with shell on), and gelatin. Would this be cool for such little fellas?
