Apistogramma cichlid babies

I am breeding apistogramma and I don't want to deal with brine shrimp... Anything easier?

Moina might work.

You can buy frozen baby brine shrimp instead of trying to culture your own you know, also frozen daphnia. Both work well.

Some apistogramma fry are too small to eat baby brine shrimp right off the bat. You might try something like microworms or vinegar eels.

Keep some moss in an established tank, or in the tank near the bottom. Also use vinegar eels for a while and then just start putting flakes in after a few weeks.
