The pair of corys in my daughter's 5.5 gallon betta tank have eggs! I have removed the betta to the 2.5 gallon hospital tank to avoid losing the eggs. When (if) they hatch, what should the fry be fed? I usually feed powdered flake food to my fry but have never reared cory fry.

Thanks!

i have heard to just get some finly crushed flake food and put it in a little bit of water and get an eye dropper and suck some up and shoot it toward the bottom of the tank where the fry are so that they can eat it.
I hope this helps.

That's what I am thinking but want to be sure. I know there are many different foods you can feed fry but I have had such success with just crushed flake it would be cool to stick with what works!

yeahi know that there have been a couple of thread about this and thats what they all feed them.....but you could also just throw in an algae round or a shrimp pelet and they might nibble on that too as welll will the parents. lol.

Fairly balanced diet. Some nights I overfeed flake food slightly, some nights shrimp pellets, algae discs, NLS discs. I try to keep it mixed up for variety.

I would feed microworms and baby brine shrimp.
