    I have a pair in my outdoor pond. They laid a boatload of eggs and when examining a group of them, i discovered they are fertile (i can see the babies in the eggs) I plan on hatching them. My problem is..i dont know what to feed them when they hatch. I previously hatched a clutch of angelfish and fed them Baby Brine Shrimp, will the baby cats eat this? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Amber

    How big are the parents, and how big is the pond?

    The parents are 8-10 inches long, and the pond is 460 gallons with a waterfall.

    Brine shrimp should be fine.

    How big are the eggs? It'll give you an idea of how big the fry will be once they hatch.

    Depending on how fast they grow and what you raise them in, you should be able to switch to finely crushed flake food. Mix in some baby brine shrimp at first so they learn that the flakes are food too.

    I moved a few to an aquarium in the house (maybe 100 eggs) since around 5 pm, 2 have hatched out. I figure they will last about 24-48 hours on their yolks, so ill start brine shrimp tomarrow afternoon-early evening. The egg size is about the size of a piece of unground black pepper, or the size of a small(baby size) cichlid pellet (for oscars) since this is a fish forum LOL

    The pond is great, it is the keeping it clean that is horrible. even with 3/4 of it shaded, it turns green in no time flat. So I have to do 50-75% water changes at least every other week. The catfish don't seem to mind though, as long as their "homes" dont get moved.
    One of them will actually come up and eat out of my hand, not sure which one LOL Their names were thelma and louise, I guess ill have to change that now, eh?

    Thanks for the help!! Ill try everything mentioned and see what works best.

    I'll keep yall updated :D

    Try to keep an eye on the eggs. Once you can see the eyes, they should be OK, but if any of them turn white, pluck them out ASAP. It's a fungus and it'll spread like wildfire if you leave it alone.

    Well, i have about 300-350 little catfish swimming around in a tank, they sill have their yolk sac, and should have it for another 2-3 days (according to a breeder article). They are turning their darker blueish color already nd seem to be doing ok.

    I have a DIY sponge filter along with another air-stone to keep them oxygenated. Bare bottom 5 gallon tank untill the grow a bit. once they begin to eat and grow i will be moving them into a 29 gallon with some baby angels and baby swordtails.

    DO NOT put them with angels. Angels will eat the babies.
