I just did a 10 gal pwc
. Moved some driftwood and I found 2 fry! They were hiding so good! I have pfs, and they really blend in. I caught them and moved them to my 5 gallon. I turned off my lamp next to it and only the dim lights are on. I just looked and saw both of them hanging out by the pebbles and lemon Bacopa.
My big question- how and when do I try to feed them? I just crush up tropical fish flakes into super fine bits right? But how will they know to eat it?
I read that variatus are omnivores. If I put an algae wafer in there will they nibble on it? I've dropped one in my 55 and the Rummies, endlers, and adult variatus pick at it.
