I feed my fry live baby brine shrimp I hatch myself as soon as they are free swimming - approximately 2-3 days after hatching. They eat the shrimp as their first meal and for all meals for at least 2-4 weeks.

The fry will eat baby brine shrimp that I hatch until they are big enough to eat frozen daphnia. They eat these until they are big enough to eat brine shrimp. They eat the brine shrimp and chopped bloodworms for a few more weeks and then I add in crushed high protien flakes (soaked so they sink). GC has some nice "fish flakes" that I like. I add in a gel food that is heavy on spiriliana and protien (Hikari Lionhead is a good one that goes well in gel). With a nice layer of green algae to munch on, the fry have a good diet that produces good growth very nicely. This is what they eat for about a year.....

Most fry are about 3 inches in body at about 1 year of age, give or take.
