Care is pretty simple, they’ll eat crushed flakes from the get go, you just need to make sure they won’t get eaten. The breeder net will only work for so long so if you intend to raise them, you’ll need a nursery tank. Frequent water changes will do them good.

Very cool. 1.5g isn’t very big so you’ll have to move them to a larger tank once they outgrow it. How large is your main tank and what does your stocking look like? Maybe they can go there once they outgrow the 1.5?
