Default Fry food

Hey guys,

I have 7 Ikola fry that are almost done their yolk sacs. I feed my WC Colony tropheus lover's flake. Should I feed my fry the same thing?

Thanks,
Marc

Wait to feed them until the egg sac is gone. Feeding them too early will prolong that process of it disappearing altogether. But I feed my fry spirulina flakes and NLS Grow.

My fry had no egg sack when I took them out of the big tank. I have given them the Tropheus lovers flake because that is what they were eating. They are devouring it as fast as I feed it to them. I dropped a spirulina disc in and they are eating that also.

I have found when I had fry that they will take down whatever flake I put in. So long as I break it down a little.

Fry like adults will attempt to eat anything you drop in the tank. I have fed a variety from crushed flake, Dainichi, NLS, Nori, Krill, and brine shrimp.

With my fry I have observed the best growth rate with NLS Grow. Plus you can't beat the ease and convenience of the extremely small pellets for fresh spit fry.

Powdered flake or glanules have gone down a treat with my Duboisi and Ikola fry....As they have grown larger I have added larger pieces....

I use a small pepper mill to grind my granules for the fry
