1st week from free swimming feeding the baby with Infusoria & egg yolk.
How do you get them to grow so fast? My spawn were the size of your 2 week olds after a month and a half.
2nd week a mix of egg yolk and baby brine shrimps (frozen).
3rd week same as second week + a little bit of baby blood worm (frozen).
4th week a mix of baby blood worms and regular blood worms (both frozen kind).
5th regular blood worms (frozen) + chopped up shrimp meat.
6th week and forward I rotate between frozen chopped beef liver, frozen chopped shrimp meat, frozen brine shrimp, frozen bloodworm.
10% water change daily. Mostly vacuuming the junks at bottom. I use the airline tubing to slowly drip the water back in to avoid sudden temperature fluctuation.
Keep the water temp around 80-82 F.
I feed them based on my work schedule. one at 6:20 am then another right after when i get home at around 4:00pm (Make sure to overfeed them in the morning so they have stuff to munch on through the 8 hours long)
Live plants definitely help. I have hornwort and moneywort in the tank.

I am going to confess that yours is my dream grow out tank - so many beautiful fish together!
I have a question about week 3 food: where do you get baby blood worms?
I tried in the past to cut blood worms in tinier pieces, but the result was a bloody mess.

Chopping up bloodworms can be messy, especially if they're live. It's easier to chop the frozen kind as they are frozen, and then just let them thaw out.
