my angels laid eggs now they are getting close to free swimming was wondering what i can feed them as i have no brine shrimp? any home remedies? any help would be appreciated thanks
I feed guppy fry with very fine flake, just break it up into tiny pieces in your fingers, should do the trick.
You will have to get the food, whatever it is, into the shoal; the fry will not come to the surface to feed.
Newly-hatched brine shrimp is ideal for cichlids, and one can introduce finely ground flake food (soak it in water, then squirt it into the shoal with a baster or similar). They need several feedings a day.
There are Infusoria and "first foods" commercially available, I have never used these so can't offer any comments on their effectiveness.
the Hikari brand baby fish food worked amazing for my convict cichlids, and i asume it would work as well for angels. Just stir it into water and use a baster to squirt it onto the group of fish
thanks for tips everyone, i was putting fine flakes in but a mate taught me how to make this egg mixture so using that n they love it
If you don't mind what is the egg mixture? I use a number of things and they all work well. I hatch my own brine shrimp and use a powder food called first bites. These are the two best that I have found.
basically crack an egg in a container mix it up n freeze it n break off lil chunks to feed fry
yay fry! share pictures :K
it has been many years since I bred angel fish but I have seen frozen baby brine shrimp at pet stores just as they sell the standard frozen brine. I have had African cichlids fry and all I gave them was crushed up flake food. You can buy brine shrimp eggs and hatch them on your own. I did this and was not that hard. Angelfish are a beautiful species. Good luck with your babies.
