The adults get freshly hatched baby brine shrimp, Hikari micro wafers, frozen daphnia, all of which I rotate from day to day.

The fry are fed on Liquifry #1 to start with, microworms and bbs. fry are fed 3-4 times a day.

Adults (just got fry from these guys after about 3 months):
- Daily microworms ("walter worms")
- Hikari micropellets
- and whatever they forage off the java moss that fills the tank

Fry (mind you they've only been free swimming for 3 days, but they are pretty much round swimming bellies with eyes and a tail):
- O.S.I. brand "Micro-Food" -- a powdered infusoria substitute
- and I assume all the infusoria I can't see that grow from the moss and Micro-Food.

I am planning to add liquifry #1 when my lfs order gets in. Also considering live BBS for variety.

If anybody wants to know about raising microworms, let me know. They're really simple, and the CPDs go nuts over them.

Hikari Micro Wafers

Sometimes baby brine shrimp, but too much hassle for more than about once a week. My parents don't like the stink, and the filter is loud because there's so little water in the thing, and it drops from higher than the tanks.

I wonder though...can they even see those itsy, bitsy things? :roll:

i am feeding mine new life spectrum small fish formula. they are doing well on that, usually 5-6 days a week. occasionally i put some frozen cyclops-eez in for them and they go crazy over that. i have not had a spawn yet, and have either 4m - 2f, or 3m-3f, not sure about one of them.

Another food item: my shoal of F1s are in a bushynose pleco breeding tank. When I add pelletized tiny sticks of brine shrimp, papa bushynose comes out and starts working on them. As he does (he kinda gets into it), a cloud of brine shrimp pellet particles and "dust" float up into the water -- the young CPDs swarm the water right above the pleco and dart around snapping up all the bits. Good natural source of red for their fins, too (although they attack live BBS and microworms with just as much fervor)! Reminds me -- time to change the microworm culture...

I've tried to feed my cpds crushed flake, live daphnia and tubifex but they just seem to spit it out/ignore it. Am I doing something wrong?

I've had a bit of luck with JMCs high protein granules... Has anyone tried the frozen bbs? Micro worms are on order...

I fed my wild specimens primarily on daphnia & whiteworms although they also took a little Tetrapro veg. All the fry were raised in home made infusoria followed by Hikari first bites, tetra baby & then crushed Tetrapro colour. All the raised fry are now happy to live of flake.

Following the addition of the first set of adults to the wild specimens, the wild fish have started to 'copy' the younger fish and have taken flake, however, they are always first there when live food is given.
