kribensis orphans

I have kribensis fry that have never left the cave until now and unfortunately the parents just died. They seem to be all milling around without eating. Is there anything I can do to get them to eat? Is there anything else I should do to raise them if that is even possible?

They make this very fine power fry food. I think it has a picture of Discus fry on it but Im not home now to check. I am currently feeding it to my Bolivian Ram fry and have since they have become free swimming. I got it at the local large chain pet store.

I have my fry in their own 10 gal so feeding isn't a issue but you may be able to put some of this stuff in a eye dropper and squirt it by the group.

Good luck!

Ill look for that. One problem is, I dont even see them looking for food. In the past, when the mother would bring out the fry they would stay in a clump and eat algae. Now they just sit there.
