Default how?

How do I introduce veggie tablets to my fry? They currently eat one pellet around 5pm. That's all.

I would crush one into a powder and then give them a tiny pinch a day over the course of two or more weeks while still feeding them their main staple. Just t be safe.

Then once that step is finished, I'd go ahead and just plop them in or use an alligator clip on a piece of wire to hang it in the water. (Pam Chins idea)...

You can feed them their normal staple around 2-3 times a day along with the one pinch a day of crushed up wafers making sure not to let them stuff themselves as well leaving any extra floating around in the tank. As a best practice.

I only feed my fry twice a day.

Wow 2-3 times a day seems a lot. But I will try
