Fry meal plan!


New Member
Hi Experts,

I have Apistogramma Agassizii fry which are about 3 weeks old.
Initially I was feeding micro worms for say the first week, then a mix of micro worms and BBS, and now predominantly BBS twice a day.
I'm wondering:
1) what is best to feed them at this age?

2) and is there an "ideal" food plan for then?
what I mean by this question is what foods at what age. I mean live foods are generally considered best particularly when raising fry but as they get older in practice dry foods and frozen foods are easier so when is good to introduce those into the diet along with live foods say twice a week.

I feed my fry and adults BBS + frozen foods. If they eat dry foods then add it, too.
