I fed them Blue's (or I should say Lupin) home made recipe of egg yolk in water then squirt a wee bit at them. I bought some liquifry as well for them to use now but last night when they hatched no fish stores were open obviously so I made do. The home made recipe is probably just as good, but I feel more reassured using the liquifry. I plan to move them onto baby brine shrimp shortly.
They're so tiny! It's hard to believe that a life form that size actually exists. I have to look really hard even to just see them, but when I get them in focus I could watch them for hours - they dart about that breeding unit at top speed!
I'll continue to update this post every day or two with their progress, and to answer any questions anyone has, although if asking questions, please remember that this is my first go at this - I'm doing absolutely everyhitng I can for them but in terms of experience, until now, I have none.
As a little aside - there were eggs laid on the side of the filter as well but I didn't try to remove these as last time I tried removing eggs from a hard surface (the glass) I smashed them
Anyway, there are no eggs there anymore so I assume there are also tiny cories swimming about my tank with the other fish, or at least there would have been until they probably got eaten. I have heard people saying though, that you ocassionally get a survivor and one day you just happen to see it in the tank all of a sudden. I will keep a look out for any of these guys, but I'm not hopeful for them.
