Too make egg yolk easy to use all you need are an ice cube tray, one egg, and a mister from any cheep dollar store.

1 Hardboil and egg.
2 smash just the yolk in to two cups of water.
3 stir and poor into the icecube trays, freeze it.
4 take one ice cube and melt it into a half cup of water
5 put into the spritzer. (shake it up)
6 spritz it once or twice over the fry tank. (rember open Lid of fry tank)
Return spritzer to the fridge , it keeps for three days. no more,
Replace it with a fresh cube.

Do not spritz more often. Do it twice a day. Morning and evening. That gives the fry time to eat it.
You must vacumm the bottom of the tank each morning after you start this. DON"T LEAVE ON THE BOTTOM FOR ANY EXTENDED TIME

This may be a silly question, but do the fry do as well on egg yolk as they do on other foods?

And to think we used to strain that egg yoke through a nylon stocking and try to feed the fry. Some actually lived! This is a much better method, Why didn't I think of it 25 years ago when I was spawning Bettas!

I used this method for my last two spawns. I am throwing out my microworm cultures. This is easier and I actually saw less die off in the first week. I did three feedings/day, two squirts. I also overlapped the coversion to bbs, with one squirt in the AM and one in the pm for the first two days on bbs.

It's the best way to start. They eat it very well, and I also have never experienced any kind of die off.

That's the reason when people go on about Liquifry, I get riled. Liquifry is worthless. AND how much cheaper can you get than an egg yolk? Even with the largest spawn you have MORE than enough food with just one egg!
