Either the fries quantity is low or you are not feeding enough!

Is it possible to feed the fries with green water? My father told me, when he is young he used to feed fighting fish fries with green water until they can take tubifex worm. He also said last time where to find bbs, only thing they have is tubifex. Any bro have tried green water to feed fries before?

i started feeding them BBS 2nd day of free swimming.
after 1 week of feeding them, i started to change their water.
I ordered from Ebay last time.. One bottle 50ml its been like 3-4years and i still have 3/4 full. Im not sure where sg got sell. I believe there are breeders or friendly ppl can share to u some.

I now separate the fries into 2 tank, 1 of the tank I will feed them with green water which I currently have, the other tank I will feed them with baby BBS. Let's see which tank will have better growth.

Hi bro, is you see chasing, normally spawning will happen within the 1~2hours. Check the female by gently press the stomach, if eggs come out, spawn it asap. So always get ready your bowl and other stuffs.
I also got another spawn from same female. good luck!
