I feed my babies only twice a day. If you feed more the water Qty. goes bad. You have to do a lot of water changes. I change the water once a week of 25% but if you feed more you will have to do water changes twice a week. If the ammonia, Nitrate,Nitrite levels get high you will loose some of the baby fry. It will take about 2 1/2 months for the colors to develop and when they get bigger then the biggest fishes mouth you can then but them back in the main tank as a rule.
