celestial pearl danio fry

Yesterday I spy two new fry...about a month or so I found one...These two new guys have no fear and are swimming out in the open and no one seems to care. My question is since this type of fish doesnt come up to the top is there any thing special I should be doing to feed? I have been poking the food down for all babies and grown fish.

I find it odd that yours DON'T go to the top...I have pearl danios that ONLY swim at the top of the tank.

Do you have fry and adults? and you say they swim up to the top to feed? Mine absolutley will not come to the top.. food will stay up there unless I poke it down then they come a running. The babies are growing so they must be getting some.

As noted in our profile of the Celestial Pearl Danio [click the shaded name to see it], foods must sink as the fish does not (normally) come to the surface to feed. Hakari make a micro pellet food that would be ideal (for the adults) as it floats for a bit but will easily slowly sink. This is the only pellet-type food i have found acceptable to all my fish; they seem to love it.

Fry often find microscopic food, especially in well-planted tanks that are not over-cleaned. The thick plants also provide good hiding spots for the fry until they are large enough to feel safe in venturing out. Once they do, in addition to the micro pellets, newly-hatched brine shrimp would work, and possibly frozen (or live) daphnia. There are also fry preparations and infusoria sold in fish stores.
