Liquifry #1 for egglayers and Hikari`s First Bites. With Liquifry you need to be careful not to use too much, I put a small drop on my little finger and make sure it`s a small one, if too much just shake off some, better to error on the short side than to pollute the water. Of course I change about 80 % of the water every day that has some salt added. First bites is almost a powder that does not stick together in the moist air of a fish room and is easy to spinkle on the water. One other tip I got from a Jim Gasior article about raising up fry is to rub your finger on the bottom fry container, if it`s slimey, clean it up before it kills the fry. Also in the July/ August issue of JAKA is an excellent article by Bob Morenski on how to keep them going with small filters. Hope some !

I have some Hikari first bites which I used for some montezumae fry as
I hadn't tried setting up a BS hatcher yet(but will need to soon).
"One other tip I got from a Jim Gasior article about raising up fry is

waterchange I'm assuming?
