Ben P. Posted July 13, 2021 Share Posted July 13, 2021 (edited) Hi there everyone! I had my first Australian rainbow fry hatch yesterday and have a few questions about feeding them, and fry grow out in general. I have the fry floating on ziplock containers in my 55 to keep the temp, and was wondering what everyone has the best luck feeding them? I have sera micron that I have been feeding 3 times daily (that's what works with my work schedule, I know more would be great) but I can't tell if they are actually eating it or not. Also I took a bit of java moss out of a platy breeding tank, and upon putting it in the container with the fry, a bunch of small black things which I assume are insects came rushing out of it. They are about the size of the head part of the rainbow fry, and from a bit of research online, I think they may be seed shrimp? I just was shocked that with the stocking level and number of fry in that tank that a small creature like that would be able to survive and not be eaten! I'll try to upload a photo tonight, my photos I have are apparently too large of file size. I was wondering if these will eat or hurt my fry, and if they won't, are they a decent food source for the fry? Update: here is a link to the video of my fry and the small insects, any help would be appreciated! https://photos.app.goo.gl/mnfEiSucvTzYoA7ZA Thank you in advance!
