Most people are using boiled egg yolk it seems unless you know someone that can give you vinegar eels which are worms of course that you culture in apple cider vinegar or microscopic organisms called infusoria. You feed that for 3 days and then most hatch brine shrimp eggs for 3 weeks.. And as DS suggested... you feed 3 times a day..
Around 3 weeks I introduce other foods such as ground up pellets, I use Atison's starter, frozen daphnia, some chop up frozen blood worms..
Becky, what is your spawning tank setup and what are you feeding the adults you want to spawn?

1. What is your spawning tank setup.. how big, plants, filter, heater.. temperature?
2. How long have you had the pairs and what are they in?
3. Do you have BBS now? 4. And do you have a hatchery setup?
Liquid fry is something that can be a problem if you over do it.
Tess uses boiled egg yolk and can help you there ..She has directions posted in a few threads that I have also copied and pasted for those that want to use that..
