Baby Guppies

Postby reeve38 » Mon Aug 06, 2012 8:23 pm

Hi all.
I have six baby Guppies that are 2 weeks old and I was wondering if any one could tell me at what age should I stop giving them Liquifry and to start them on pellets (King British)

There is no reason to give guppy fry Liquifry in the first place. They are old enough from birth to eat finely crushed flake food. Just rub it between your thumb and finger when you drop it in. If the pellets float then the fry can nibble on the edges as they break up in the water.

yep,crushed flake is the way to go....i have used the liqufry before..mainly in the breeding tank,with live bearers....only for the first few days,then onto flake...
