Breeding food for apistogramma?

Hi guys,

My boss has a pair of Apistogramma agassizi double red that he doesn't sell, but tries to breed. He said that next time they breed, I can have half the fry.
Can someone advise me on the right water conditions to rear apistogramma fry, so I don't end up killing them. The pair at the shop have bred three times since he first got them not long ago, and all three batches of fry have died.
I will try to do some research for myself too, but I appreciate you guys opinion too.

Thanks
Nick

I'd feed live micro foods- baby brine shrimp, vinegar eels, micro worms, etc. Keep the water moderately soft and the ph around 6...although match it to your boss' water at first and *slowly* alter the parameters as they grow.
