    Hello guys
    I'm new in the hobby, so pardon me any 'dumb' question.
    I've researched and found how to culture green water. But how do i use this green water with my zebra fry?
    Should i feel their tank with this water or drop small amounts of it?

    What do you mean by green water?

    Green water is basically water filled with algae particles so thick that the water turns green. It's useful in feeding fry.
    Sorry OP, I don't know the ratio, but I often hear that live foods are better for fish fry. Stuff like vinegar eels and such. I think if you were to feed green water, granted I don't know if it's the best, but you could probably use a turkey baster or similar dropper to drip the water in front of the fry.

    Dump them in the tank of green water? That’s what I did with one of my White Cloud Mountain Minnow fry, when I had to disappear for two weeks. I came back and the little guy was still alive and has even grown quite a bit.

    Ohh okay thank you. I was thinking that was what he meant, but wasn’t quite sure. By reading the responses, it seems like the green water and maybe another beneficial food source would be your best bet.

    Super.
    Grow them in green water and feed them lettuce infusoria.
    Hope this works.
    Thanks guys
