Baby food?

My guppy is just about to burst with fries, I was wondering, should I feed them anything besides the flakes that I give to the rest of the fish?

They make special food for fry, almost a powder, i think its called Hikari First Bites. I've had really good luck just taking some flake and crushing it in to a powder. Pretty much the same thing. For the most part, fry will find their food on plants and in the substrate, but it never hurts to feed them a little

I ground up flake food for my first batch of guppies, but I don't even bother anymore. The fry pick stuff off the plants.

I grind up my NLS cichlid food into powder for fry then when they grow a bit I switch to NLS growth.

Just used powderized "what ever food you already feed them".

I grind up just any tropical fish food with a pestle and mortar it works really well. It turns out like a powder
