G'day,

I'm having good results with NLS grow... they are very small pellets so great for fry. Its also recommended to feed baby brine shrimp (BBS) either frozen or live if you can hatch your own.

I've never bred flamebacks but going off malawi mouthbrooders 2-3 weeks is the norm...

New Life Spectrum Grow Formula... its a brand of fish food available at most good aquarium shops or online.

Have a look here or try one of the forum sponsors at the top of the page.

baby brine is good depending on the size of the fry

i personally use sera micron for really little fry (just used there sack)

sera micropan fine crushed flake (for free swimmers) for a little while then

i go on to baby brine

i have found sera baby foods have a much better growth rate and health properties then most other foods and it dosen't make your water smell like someone died in there either
