| || | How do I care for Angelfish Fry?!?
I posted antoher thread yesterday stating that my angelfish spawned for the first time! There are pictures in that thread. I've been trying to read as much as possible on angelfish breeding and fry. I understand that this first batch might not make it, but as of this morning all the eggs were still on the leaf and all were a light yellow, except 5 (a good sign!). Mom was protecting the eggs and fanning them. Might be a different story when I get home 8 hours from now though
Anyway, in case they do make it I'm looking for information on how to care and feed them. I know baby brine shrimp is the most recommended, but I'm not prepared to set up a whole brine shrimp hatchery in the next 3 days. I found food by Hakari called "Baby Bites" that got excellent reviews but the issue is finding them in time (will call around to LFS's today).
Does anyone have a backup suggestion on what I can feed the fry if they make it? Can I mash up flakes into powder? All suggestions welcome!!!
