What Do You Feed Your Chilli Rasboras?

    THEY ARE SO TINY
    THEY ARE SO DANG TINY

    I tried to feed them daphnia and they just wouldn't eat it, it was too big for them.
    It's very hard to source live foods here but I will give it my best shot if I have to.

    Ideally I'd like to feed them dry or frozen.
    Will try mysis shrimp tomorrow.

    You can feed them flakes, crush them up to bite size.
    I fed my Celestial Pearl Danios, which were even smaller, flakes, micro pellets, and brine shrimp once they got bigger.
    These little guys were only about 1/4 of an inch when I got them.

    Your CPDs are smaller than your chilli rasboras??
    My CR are about half the size of my CPDs. The CPDs are eating the daphnia just fine, in fact. Were yours babies at this time? I think my CR must be about a quarter inch right now too...

    Micro worms are a favourite in my tank.

    I have feeder endlers (I don't feed them to anything .. I just like them :) ) that are too small to even eat the granule Bug Bites. I also have micro pellets that they can't eat. I crush the pellets between two spoons and they are able to eat that easily.

    Yes! I crumbled up some shrimp pellets I had laying about and they looooved it. And the bigger chunks that were too large for the chillis got eaten by my very greedy betta :D
