    What kind of fish are they? I feed my fry flake food you just have to ground it up very good and use your fingers to dip it underneath the surface so it sinks. Some fry don't eat off the surface right away to it helps to sink it.

    They can eat the same as you feed the adults, just crush it finely for their small mouths.

    The yolk of a hard boiled egg, blendered with some water, and added to the tank by the drop from an eyedropper works well when they're really small. It's amazing how well they can see those microscopic particles and chase them down.

    They chow down on them and have yellow bellies and poop from eating so much!

    Keep it in a sealed container in the refrigerator and toss it after a few days so it doesn't go bad.

    Ground up flake food also works, especially as they get bigger - which yours already seem to be.

    I feed my babies Hikari First Bites from the amount of baby fish you have in the picture I would say that they were born recently unless you have a lot of hiding places for them to hide in.

    I feed my platy babies regular flake food crushed super fine until it's almost powder, float some and sink some under the water surface.
