A baby
I just saw my first live baby dalmation molly. It is roughly a cm. long. What should I feed it? I now have it in the breeder tank, as it was swimming around.

Baby brine shrimp and crushed flakes are both good foods to start them on.

So i just grind up some flakes and drop it in the breeder tank and it will be fine?

Pretty much.

Overfeeding is inevitable when feeding fry, so just make sure you remove uneaten food very regularly.

Try to vary the diet a little even when they are just young. If you can get a hold of some baby brine shripmp then feed this once or twice a week. After a week or 2 they should be able to eat anything an adult can eat, ie normal frozen brine shrimp, frzen bloodworm etc.
