Pulverize flakes or crisps and feed them that every 4 hrs or so...
My mollies are growing fast and getting big on that routine.
How many fry? It's so much fun, especially the first ones. I'm waiting on my 7th batch now... Are they orange/red/black??

Take out the dead ones and start feeding your little ones... They'll get the hang of food within a few days.

It's not unusual to lose some of the fry right after they are born. My Molly's last batch was 60. 20 died the first day. She had bred with an orange balloon belly. I only ended up with 10 that are now juvys. What I found odd was that none of the fry were black. All of the ones that made it either had only natural color or a mixture of orange, black and natural.

I fed mine on crushed flake food.

Congrats! I hope these continue to grow.
