I haven't used egg yolk so I'm not sure just don't over feed them cos it'll make a mess

You can try crushing some of your pellets into a powder in the mean time.

How do I know if they eat it and do I put it right into the water or mix it with water first?

They gotta be eating if they lasted almost a week right?

With my fry I got a new pepper grinder and put some pellets in it then grind away at feeding time.

It turns to powder basically. I didnt worry about pre soaking it.

Maybe I'll try that or I have one of those things where its a bowl and has a thing that you use to grind things up in I forget what it is called. I'm just scared some of them aren't eating since people said they should swarm to the food but they don't

Mine didnt swarm til a few weeks old

I had a large bunch of parrots feather plant in with them too.

So they grazed on that an hid in it etc.

Mine never swarmed to it either but you'll see their bellies full and you'll see them poop

I have one fry that seems to be developed more than the others which I saw the food in its stomach yesterday. The other fry seem to be catching up though development wise.

I actually lost the last few I had cos my air pump died and I couldn't keep the water good for long enough. But I have a new batch of eggs I'm waiting to hatch so maybe I'll have better luck this time. I finally got my amazon package with my new air pump and a sponge filter so I'm going to keep my fingers crossed for them

Since youre asking about a filter when is the right time to put a airstone in or raise the water level

I put an air stone in after a few days but with a little valve so you can control the air flow and make it just a little
