Brine shrimp are easy enough (still have to try for myself, this weekend, I think), vinegar eels might be a good size?
Almost time to uncover the tank. . . hope I still have eggs! The suspense is killing me. . .
Golden Pearls from Kensfish will work for bow fry. Once they are big enough to take BBS(usually after the yolksac is used up) they do very well on that. If the bows lay eggs in plants, move the plant to a separate tank and let the fry hatch there. No power filters!! Use a sponge filter with a low air setting. Water changes everyday after the fry start growing are necessary to rear them.
