Be prepared for disappointment also, sorry.

It can be hard work feeding and keeping them after the 'free swimming' stage.

Try and culture some Microworm, this is the best food for them and Baby brineshrimp.

I wish you all the luck, there is nothing better than watching your hard work pay off and some stunning colours coming out of your brood.

Hard boiled eggs yolk work as a first food, but they are very easy to over feed and can pollute a tank fast. I like VE as a first food, but raise most of my spawns on BBS as a first food because they are the easiest food to culture. I keep 2 VE cultures going for lines that throw smaller fry like Melanos.

RC, Are melanos slow growers like opaques? My melanos seem to be taking forever. I'm thinking they are stunted. Been 6 months and still not full size.
