Diets For Newborn Fishes
“First Bites is the greatest!”
"Your First Bites is the greatest! When I first started to breed guppies they ended up weak and not vibrant like they were supposed too. Was feeding them egg mixture and crushed adult flake. It wasn't working. Saw your product and have used it for many batches of guppy fry, and a batch of minnow (egg layer) since. The majority of fry survive and that is great. Your food makes them more resistant to diseases and predation from the adult guppies, because they are stronger. Thank you for the great product-as many competitors forget about the fry."

For optimum results, feed daily as many times as possible, the amount your pet will completely consume within two (2) to three (3) minutes. Up to 10 feedings per day may be necessary depending on number of fry and activity level. For mid-water and bottom feeders allow Hikari First Bites to saok in a cup of aquarium water before feeding. This will cause the food to sink more rapidly allowing these fry better access. Livebearers (ovoviviparous) can consume Hikari First Bites right after birth. Start feeding Hikari First Bites right before the yolk sack is fully consumed. Care should be taken to avoid over-feeding. Excess food can cause water quality problems which may result in heightened stress or serious illness. Feeding less food to be sure none is left after the feeding period is preferred to allowing uneaten food to settle to the bottom of your aquarium.
For additional feeding suggestions for your fry once they surpass the need for Hikari First Bites, ask your aquatic retailer about Hikari's other specialized diets for all types of freshwater and marine fishes and pond pets too. Quality diets from the leader in premium nutrition for aquatic pets!
