    The pair gave me a good view today.
    Seems that things are still moving forward. Just feeding BBS only. Daily WC of 30%.

    Frank I'm wondering if you shouldn't start thinking about incorporating some more foods maybe freeze dried or even live daphnia or some freeze dried rotifers and cyclops , but yet maintain the bbs

    Jeanne,

    Perhaps. I have given some golden pearls a couple of times.

    I have re-read the challenge threads. I was particularly impressed with Bryan's growth rate. If I understand the thread, he only fed BBS until they were near quarter size along with 2x a day WC. Here is a quote from that thread. "I feed my fry BBS until they reach about 1.5" and then slowly transition to solid food such as high protein beefheart mixed flakes, Tropical Discus Gran D-50 plus baby, Discus chow, and golden pearls."

    Is this the right way? Not sure. Is it the only right way? No. I certainly want to hear from you and others. I am taking it day-by-day and am prepared to begin more foods (FDBW, etc.) at any moment. I am very much a novice with this. Your continued observations, counsel, and perspective are all very helpful.

    The parents are doing great. I, as the instrument of their care and food, am very much learning.

    P.S. I wish the Discus chow was still available. Only read excellent comments on it.
