They should be ok for a couple of days. I would try to get some microforms or vinegar eels from someone in Sydney.

What bettarazzi said. :) and if you've got any plants in there like java moss, there should be some microscopic critters for the fry to feed on while you source some bigger food - also if you've got a garden with still water you might find some mozzie rafts, which hatch pretty small

You can also boil up an egg, scrape some of the yolk out, put it in a spray bottle with some water and spray this into your tank. You just have to shake the bottle up until there are only very tiny particles of yolk present.

I've used this before on some gourami fry and they would eat it.

However, you have to be careful as any left rotting at the bottom can cause issues with water quality.

I will go with Ashlea on the egg I use it instead of MW as I find it more hasle free and the fry respond to the water change. Just remember only a little you are feeding fry not Rabits, Ha Ha. I also keep wardleys liquid fry food on hand as this is a quick feed for the first two weeks if I am to busy to prep Egg. I start the BBS in the second week but still keep up the liquid food for another week so the smaller fry have a chance.

I hope this helps

cheers

I'm going to be awful and ask why you have hatched eggs and hadn't thought what to feed 'em... but good on you for trying to spawn.

Live food is key in these early days, I'd suggest you start trying to hatch brine shrimp now so you get the hang of it. (It's everyone's biggest problem on the first spawn)

You'll have a bit of loss in numbers too, so keep live food up and water changes are your new best friend.

Goodluck
