I have 4 Black Tetra in a communal tank. I notice that the one 2 of them got pretty fat. I move all of the to a separate tank with round stones and marbles on top. 1 day later I notice that the tank is cover with eggs. I removed all the fish and have only the eggs in the separate tank.

I need to find out how to feed the fry when they hatch. I cannot get liquid fry food, micro worms, vinegar eels or newly hatched brine shrimp. One pet shop told me to boil a egg and take the yellow part of the egg mixed it with water and feed the fry 3 time a day with only a few drops.

Please tell me what is the correct way to treat the fry

Thank you

Well, tetras fry are pretty small. They really need baby brine shrimp. Why cant you get any? Also, the egg yolk mixture will work fine, just feed 5 times a day. Be careful not to overfeed!
