My Odessa Barbs spawned today. I have removed the parents and begun hatching baby brine. Any advice on how to raise would've helpful.

Do water changes more often to keep the water healthier for your fry(and this will promote better rapid growth)but keep the new water parameters as close as you can to the original waters tank.

I fed them twice daily for a couple of days in their community tank. Then I moved the female and male at night to reduce stress. I have a two gallon tank set up with a small bunch of live plants, Rotala indica. My tank is near a window, I know it's a no no but it triggers natural spawning. At around 10 in the morning they had spawned and begun foraging for eggs so I removed the parents. I'm not in it for major production so I only get 8 or so babies per breeding. I have lots of snails and scuds in my tank to clean up waste and they eat some eggs. Good luck
