feeding your fry...

I use one of those small plastic medicine syringes.  I put a couple NLS pellets in a small dish, and use the flat end of the syringe to smash it up.  Then add some tank water and mix it up real good.  Suck it up in the syringe, and squirt it out slowly near the fry.  Of course this only works if your fish will eat NLS chilid formula or Grow formula.  I have Pulchers and Fronts, they love it.

I just take some of the brine shrimp flake from ken's, put it into a small coffee grinder and it turns it into almost a powder similar to cyclopseze, they seem to find it easily and take it with no problems

My fry get a little bit of everything. What ever food I get for free from the club or other promotions get put into a tupperware bin with a few 3/4 in brass bolts. Then I shake that snot out of it. Crushes flake very fine. Then I mix in some cyclopese.

Keep the tank about 80* and WC about once a week at about 30%.

what are the methods you guys use to feed/raise your fry? i've always tried to feed them flakes right off the bat instead of starting them off with BBS. i figure its just easier for the people who purchase fish off of me when its time to feed. i feed them hikari first bites and they eventually move on to flake food (usually just tetramin mixed with spirulina flakes). i work 3rd shift so im home during the day. fries eat 5-7 times a day with a 30-40% water change every 3-4 days.

gotta love those cichlids!
