What else can I give them? When they are a bit bigger I will occasionally feed them things like frozen bloodworm for a bit extra protein.
Also, would anybody be interested in buying any BNs from me in a few months when they are older?
I've also recently bought a young albino BN, not sure of the sex yet so hopefully will have some albino babies in the future!! :)
Congrat's on the babies, aint they cute? I fed mine Romain lettuce leaves,spirulina pellet's,yellow squash,sweet red bell pepper's,zucchinni,and algae wafer's.
Be careful leaving the male and female together,they can keep producing young rather quickly and soon you could have your hand's full with young fry = frequent small feeding's =frequent water changes to keep water quality good.
