Holy crap, furcata rainbow fry! Help!

I wasn't trying to breed them or anything, but apparently they did... I just spotted two fry in my tank! Help! What do I feed them? I have a very dense portion of the tank full of java moss and other plants (where they are now) so I don't think they will be eaten by other fish.

Hikari First bites would work well for food. As well as raising some baby brine shrimp for them would be a good idea.

I'm jealous, I've been trying to locate some furcata's for weeks now, unsuccessfully.

I just picked up some of that, and a quarantine net. I'm hoping a few more show up, but so far it's only the two.

Awesome. Check your filter if you haven't already. I find baby endlers alive and well in mine all the time.

My filter inlet is well covered by a cylindrical sponge filter and a lot of java moss. I found two more, for a total of 4!

Awesome. I just got my furcatas in, and I love them. Hopefully they'll breed for me too.
