How To Make Fry Food or Baby Fish Food Step by Step

Where To Start With Fry Food

So after your fish lay eggs or give birth this becomes a crucial time for you to act fast. If you don't want to mess with baby brine shrimp then it's time to start some fry food from food you have laying around the house. Baby fish usually dont need to be fed for a couple days if the are eggs laid. Live bearers are a little different and need to eat within 6 hours but you are probably fine for 12 hours because their will be enough in the tank for them to eat.

Baby fish are great to watch grow but need to be fed round the clock.
