sorry buddy I got you confused with the guy with the flowehorn babies !! ok so I would try and feed them a little bit now and see how it goes I think they need something in the tank for sure.. you are gonna thaw the food right ..

Also that dropper will work very well or even a smaller one if you have it but if not no big deal

last I have no idea about the current thing lol

What I did with my jeweled cichlid fry, was to put the brine shrimp in a net, and then float it in the water. This kept the parents from gobbling up the food for the babies, and also allowed me to disperse it all over the tank.

I have been changing 25-30% water every day should I continue with that or can I change the water every other day? Also, as far as lighting, how much light should they get at this stage? I put very little crushed flakes but I can't tell if they are eating or not lol

Here they are

Thank you. At the moment they aren't swimming on the top of the water, they are all behind the spong filter in the corner at the bottom. Which I don't get but I guess whatever. As far as what Im going to do with all of them. I'm going to give some out to my family and whom ever lives near me I don't mind giving some out. Of course I'm trying hard to keep them all alive but I asked a few questions that I can use answers. What ever left people can get a pair or whatever.

How often should put on the light? Cause when they are on the top and I put on the light, they swim to the bottom but after a while they go back to the top.

Should I continue changing the water daily 25-30% change?

Should I stick to crushed flakes or the baby brine shrimp? Using the baby brine shimp it wools settle to the bottom as well as the flakes. Now I use regular flakes I just take a pinky nail amount on a piece of paper and crush them till it's like smaller than the baby brine shrimp. The problem I guess I have is that I can't see them eat being that they are still very small, for my vision anyways lol, but of course I dont the reason of no food for any of their deaths.
