Cute Little Hitchhiker with my plants
 
So, there's a baby platy in my tank! Bought plants today and there he was in the tank! Cute as a button and so teeny tiny I keep worrying I'm going to lose him! How do I look after him properly? Can he just eat normal fish food?

If you crush up some of the flakes so that they're almost powder, it should be fine.

Or you can always try putting a fry net in your tank and feed it First Bites which is basically already a powder if he's that tiny.

Good luck with him/her :)

If you don't have any fish but him, you don't need the fry net. I feed mine crushed flake food, and they do fine. Just dont over feed him. If he's the only fish, just take 1 flake in the palm of your hand and crush with your thumb, brush it in the tank and watch him eat it.

With my fry, I crush up flake food and blood worms. I put a few pinches of both into a bowl and crush them with my fingers until it's powder. I give a small pinch of that to my fry twice a day. It has worked very well for me.
