Don't know how many will survive thsi stage as I've made a few rookie boo boo's but...Hopefully:0Cute little buggers...

Does anybody know how long once they become free swimming they ahve to eat newly hatched brine shrimp? I was reading 2 weeks and then begin to add finely crushed flake food..should I do this ,suppliment it with something else or...any suggestions would be great!

Thanks!
I believe it is around 3 weeks when they can start taking larger food, but if they are eating the shrimp I would finely powder some flake food, soak it in a saucer of tank water to get it waterlogged, and squirt it (a baster or similar) gently into the shoal of fry. They will likely eat it. I like to get fish onto prepared foods soon only becuase it is easier for me.

Omega One and Hikari seem to get good reviews from most members.
