I saw a sterbai fry in my 29 gallon tank. I posted a picture of the tank here:

Will it find enough to eat on its own or do i need to do anything special ? I saw one so I assume there are others but as you can see from picture it is impossible for me to count or catch them. I have no clue if they have a chance and if they do if there is ample food for them in that environment.

If they’ve made it this far there‘s a good chance they might make it to adulthood. Whatever you feed the adults just crush some of it very finely & if you can drop it in the heavier planted areas they should find it where other fish can’t

Thanks. I'm not seeing them today so i have no clue how many are alive. I feed the fishes a mix during the week from rasphy green gel to hiraki pellets. I also throw in at times omega-one shrimp pellets and bug bites (the ram loves his bug bites). No clue how many i have but i think the one i saw yesterday was marginally larger than a 2 week old angel fry and looked like it had very small fins on the side.

Oh well if i do see them again it will probably be a long time from now. My guess is they are hiding in the süsswasertang with the kuhli.

When I do a water change this weekend i guess i have to be more careful to not vacuum too much gravel.

Anyway thanks for the comment. It would be a huge bonus if they don't require special care.
