  • **Water Quality:** Ensuring optimal water quality is crucial. This includes maintaining proper pH levels, ammonia and nitrite levels, and providing good aeration and filtration to keep the water clean.
  • **Feeding:** Fry are fed specialized food that is designed for their small size and nutritional needs. This can include commercial fry food, finely crushed flakes, or specially formulated fry pellets. Feeding frequency and amount should be monitored to prevent overfeeding.  Overfeeding will lead to water quality issues.
