ive made powdered food myself too, depending on the likes of your fry he may not eat it if it doesnt sink so i watch them and if they dont eat of the top i push it down with my finger so it goes down then he/she may eat it. If still not eating live food would be your only other choice...

bbs shrimp.... That'll help but if you have none, perfect water, temp like 79 80 degrees and feed MORE than once a day. Three times is usually good. Make sure there is proper lighting too because without it as the baby grows it will develope a disformed back.

Glofish Breeding

Zebra danios are some of the easiest egglaying fish to breed in the aquarium, and glofish should be no different. If you have a pair of glowfish that spawns in the aquarium, their fry will also be glofish and not plain zebra danios. For regular zebra danios it is possible to tell the difference between males and females. Females have blue and silver stripes and males have blue and gold stripes, and the females usually have more of a rounded bodyshape. Other than body shape I'm not certain how you determine the sex of glofish.

During spawning they scatter their eggs. As with regular zebra danios, you should place marbles in the bottom of the breeding tank so that the parents won't be able to eat the eggs. You should also have plants in your spawning tank. After spawning is complete remove the parents from the tank and place them back into the regular aquarium.

The eggs should hatch in 1-3 days. Once the fry are free-swimming they can be fed liquid commercial fry food or infusoria. They are too small at first to eat brine shrimp nauplii, but in a week or two this should be added to their diet as well as powdered fry food.

i have learned by observing how to tell between male and female it's actually quit easy


MALE:slender body a Little bit bigger wavier fins.

FEMALE: chubby smaller fins by just a bit and you know for sure when u catch them breeding/spawning.

PS. i don't have a breeder tank they just do it in the regular tank and i am not trying to breed them they do it them self's i think they be in love because he doesn't go near the other 2 females in the tank
