    Hi Mark, for small fish I just use normal flake and crush it before feeding, either between my fingers as i feed or whilst in the tub

    As Jase says, I do this with Tetra flake. I have also fed my mosquito rasbora (and my ember tetra when I had them) on tetra prime granules, which are very small.

    Thanks lads. I do use the Tetra Prima but quite a lot of it is too large for the Embers.

    HIkari Micro Pellets, Fancy Guppy are very small and Easily Eaten by Embers. Also I use Brine Shrimp Eggs

    Gill, is that the Hikari Fancy Tropical Guppy Food, or the Tropical Micro Pellets?

    Red crumb and flake from TA Aquaculture. Far superior to most commercial brands

    Yeah I have used this and it was eaten very hungrily. I bought mine from the Auction in Corby last year - will have to remember to buy some more this year
