I unexpectedly found some dwarf rainbow fry in my tank - so I ordered this - they love it and so far I’ve made it to week 5-6 - Of course new baby’s keep appearing so I feed this and baby brine shrimp - ive learned so much from reading and watching corys videos and articles thanks for all the help and all the great products and plants 😊 keep up the good work!
I feed 5-50 micron Golden Pearls and green water to baby rainbows for a few days, then I switch to this slightly larger food and microworms. All types of small fish really go after this food. It has a lot of algae meal but all fish fry I have used it for have torn it up. One small bottle of it will last a long time so it seems like a good deal. I think it is better than the Hikari First Bites, which seems to pollute the water a little more and the fish don't seem to slam it as hard, and it may be that fry that never had chlorophyll or another "color" food may never get the grown up colors you were looking for.
Even though we hatch live baby brine shrimp for various fry daily, we still find that Sera Micron is a must-have supplement. Our preferred method is tapping some powder into a small container of water and mixing thoroughly to create a green liquid fry formula that can be fed via baster or syringe. Sometimes we also add to our rinsed brine shrimp before feeding to fortify with greens. Whether as a back up in case of a poor brine shrimp hatch, or as a complete addition for feeding rather small fry, we recommend always having Sera Micron on hand if you are serious about breeding fish.
