PostSubject: Feeding Juvies   Tue Feb 16, 2010 11:53 am

Just wondering what the best food for young B/N (say 2 days up to 3 months). I am currently feeding Hiraki algae wafers - cucumber and zucchini - and broad spectrum. They are going well and have about 100 and growing rapidly.

Mainly just enquiring if I should be feeding Brine??????

High wes100, maybe you could try to replace the brine shrimp with frozen bloodworm, frozen bloodys will thaw and sink to the bottom where as brine shrimp swim about and make for a little harder target to catch.
Also zuchinni works good at nearly all ages, just remember to remove it from your tank when it starts
going a bit foul.
cheers J

Is there something else to feed in order for fry/juvies to grow up quickly?

a bit of protein always helps them grow up a bit faster but its a fine ballancing act and if you get it wrong you will loose them all. I feed my babies the same a feed the adults. Cucumber as a staple with a bit of flake food or algae wafers every now and again and once a week a bit of bloodworm.

best thing to help them grow faster is nice clean water and more room Smile

yeah feed them plenty of tank space, bigger the better, though the bigger they are the harder the water change... Sad

my fish prefer cucumber, lettuce, and the occasional pea smothered in garlic... lol..
