    My female guppy will give birth soon and I know that fry should have a variety of good food. i know that they can have powdered quality flake food, but what about freeze dried blood worms? (crushed into a powder, of course).

    Welcome to fishlore!

    I'd say probably (As long as it is very finely ground as you said)

    Good luck and hope this helps :)

    When I got some platy fry that's what I fed them along with flakes, colour pellets, and freeze dried brine shrimp crushed into a powder and mixed together. I found it worked quite well. I was only able to save 2 fry and they are about 2 months. They have great colours and have grown quickly. I also put some of my floating hornwort in the breeder box with them and they picked peices off them. Then once they got a little bigger a started putting balanced veggies in the box and just fed them brine shrimp and blood worms.

    I'm no expert on raising fry and mine were accidental babies but this method worked for me.

    Green water, infusoria, egg yolk, phyto.
    Most commercial fry food is krill (high in anasthaxin).
    Spirulina powder is available as well.

    I th
    ink they can. I was told to be carful of the water that some of the fresh water that the fresh bloodworms come from so frozen and freeze dried probably better than fresh.
