I wait til the entire egg sac is absorbed before I feed. The new fry are kept inside a tumbler, so feeding them during this time would be a chore at best. What I do notice is small pieces of what I feed my colony.......like mysis and bloodworms and spit out krill getting sucked into the tumbler bottom and the fry eating these tiny, tiny pieces of food.
I also have a momma that likes to sift sand while holding eggs. When I saw her first do this...........around day 11-12, I started stripping her. I think she was sifting thru the sand to get the tiniest bits of food for herself and her fry.

Thanks for bringing back this old topic Ms. Heather!!!!!!!!!! We should do this more often for the newcomers to this site!
