finally some fry!

so I decided to place my red swordtail molly in a breeder despite some good info some of you gave me a while back(sorry!)I found 2 fry loose in the tank, another was torn to pieces. so far 7 orange faces with black tails, 3 albinos in there, and 1 deformity so far. its night so i left her in there to lay what she has left. what do i feed them? i crushed flake food to extremely fine flakes and dropped them in. some guidance would be nice on my first time w/fry. thanks :D

hi
congrats on the fry.
personally i have just used crushed flake
to begin with,and then they advance on to
daphnia when they are big enough,
maybe some brine shrimp.
hth. :)

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

hi
umm,i don't feed my fish brine shrimp,
i keep forgetting,however if it is like
daphnia then maybe defrost a cube of it
and give some to the babies,and the rest to
your other fish,they will love you for it. :)
