Getting ready, what food?

Postby fish_4_all » Wed Feb 06, 2008 2:16 am

Well this is my first time trying to keep such a small fish but I figured I would give them a try as they are really colorful and seem to be all the rage.

Here is what I have:
Vinegar Eels, Grindal worms, Wardleys flakes, shrimp pellets, algae wafers, Terta color with Cyclop-eeze, fruits, veggies.

Plan to get:
Decapsulated brine shrimp eggs (non-hatching), micro/banana worms, , and whatever else that might be highly recommended.

Am I missing anything from the original list I need before getting the fish? Will the getting list cover breeding, fry and adults?

I appreciate any help. It will still be a couple weeks before my tanks have cycled so I am still in the planning stages.

Sure have, a couple times. Gave me lots of ideas. Just looking for more new ones.

Anyone every feed them really small mealworms? I was thinking of getting some confused flour beetles and trying them as my swords and neon tetras used to love them. The smallest are only 1/2 inch long at most, many much smaller.

How about wingless or flightless fruit flies?

Whatever small live foods you can get hold of is worth a try. You'll have to let us know how you get on. Just from observing my own wild fish, they don't tend to pick food from the surface of the water. They will usually wait for it to start sinking.
The tank bred are happier to swim to the surface for food.
