PostSubject: Care of newly hatched fry   Mon Apr 11, 2011 4:32 pm

Hi, when moving fish/tanks around last week I found a few eggs in a jug - me being me, I put an airstone in to see if they would hatch, then promptly forgot about them! Wanted a jug y'day and grabbed this one, only to find 7 baby bn with egg sacs attached! My question is, when do I need to feed them and how soon can they go in a row out tank? thx

I find they seek food when their egg sacs are almost gone. I would offer a blanched spinach leaf sooner rather than later as some could be a day or so ahead of others. I change the leaf about twice a day until I see it being eaten and then refresh accordingly.
