I'm not sure how to care for the free swimming fry

The first step to raising angelfish is of course to get a breeding pair

After the fry have hatched out of their eggs they feed off the yolk sacs for approximately 5 days or until they are fully absorbed. Once they become free swimming they are ready to eat twice daily, meals of newly hatched baby brine shrimp, microworms, or fry powders. Be sure not to over feed them because they will eat as long as food is available to them. Be sure to complete frequent partial water changes of about 20% being careful not to siphon the tiny babies. After 3 to 4 weeks the babies take on the appearance of the angelfish that they are and will finally be ready to start eating crushed flake food. Be sure to continue feeding them a highly nutritious diet for health reasons as well as fin and color development. Happy, healthy fish will develop gorgeous color and fins.

Babysitting is not a job to me, it’s my passion to be with kids of all ages. I am blessed to have a wonderful mother and husband who takes great care of my baby so that I’m available to be with your precious angels. I truly enjoy working for Angelfish Babysitting and meeting all the delightful children and wonderful families. It’s so much fun for me!

Feeding angelfish fry is simple - feed newly hatched brine shrimp. Brine shrimp that has been hatched for even 12 hours may be too large for some baby angelfish to eat. We've never had a spawn of angelfish that was not able to eat properly prepared baby brine shrimp right away. We use the Utah brine shrimp eggs, which in our opinion are the best in the world. Check here for more details on hatching brine shrimp eggs. Do not give angelfish fry their initial feeding until they have been transferred to the rearing aquarium. It is best to let them acclimate to the change for at least an hour or two before feeding. They still have a partial yoke sac and can go for at least a full day after free swimming before food is essential. One key to raising angelfish fast, are small, frequent feedings. The object is to keep food in their stomachs at all times. This is likely to foul the water, so great care has to be taken when feeding. Water changes up to 90% also will help to eliminate many problems. There are some out there, touting micro feeds that are suppose to replace live baby brine shrimp with equal or better results for angelfish. We have tested many if not most of these and none have lived up to their claims in our experience. We don't think they even come close. In addition to that, most are quite expensive. Little or no money would be saved even if they worked well. After 3-4 weeks of age, we add crushed flake and Fry Starter #2, in small quantities, to the juvenile angelfish diet. We gradually increase the amount of dry food. After a couple weeks of them eating this well, we add freeze dried foods to complete their diet. Properly cared for, juvenile angelfish can easily have a body the size of a dime at five to six weeks of age. We typically switch them completely to flake foods, freeze-dried foods and pelleted foods at about 8-10 weeks of age. .After the Eggs are laid: After the spawning is complete, both parents care for the eggs. Any speck of dirt is removed. Dead eggs are eaten before they can rot and damage the others. (Living angelfish eggs are transparent amber color, and dead eggs are white.) The first babies appear in two days or less, and they are attached to the spawning site by a short, sticky thread extending from the baby’s head. The parents keep the babies together until they are free-swimming and they sometimes move the babies form place to place , herding them like sheep, it is amazing to watch!One key to raising angelfish fast, are small, frequent feedings. The object is to keep food in their stomachs most of the time, but to not give them too much at any one feeding. This is likely to foul the water, so great care has to be taken when feeding. Water changes up to 90% also will help to eliminate many problems. There are some out there, touting micro feeds that are suppose to replace live baby brine shrimp with equal or better results for angelfish. We have tested almost every one of these and even sell a few, but none have not performed as well as newly hatched live brine shrimp or microworms. We are convinced that no matter what the marketing hype says, none ever will. We don't think they even come close. In addition to that, most are quite expensive. Little or no money would be saved even if they worked well. They also cause water quality to crash, making massive water changes essential. Who needs all this extra work? Not us, and probably not you. I have been babysitting since I was 17 and I am now 24 yrs old. For 3 years I have been taking care of the 0-18 month babies in the nursery at my church but also care for kids in the 4-5 year old room. Working for Angelfish Babysitting is a dream come true!
