what fry food is best?

I was told that i could use newly hatched brine shrimp but they are expensive so i was also told i could use JBL Nobil Fuid and that its just as good. the fry that will be eating this are guppies and platies.

thanks!

personally, I use First Bites or I hardboil an egg and mix the yolk with water to make a paste and just put a tiny bit of the paste in with them. The egg actually seems to be their favorite, but I feed both to give them a variety.

One of the best simple to culture live fry foods is microworms. I've used many and it is my favorite.

Yeah, I have done that too. But, it only works with some flakes. Some just don't grind up well. My first guppy batches were all raised with ground flakes and egg yolk supplements.

I prefer using live foods because they keep the water cleaner for longer, plus it seems like they eat more actively when their prey is wiggling.
