Hi Peter and all, 

We use a 14h light / 10h dark cycle, both for adults and fry (they are in the same room). The light turns on at 8.30 am and off at 10.30 pm. 

We feed the fish 3 times a day (on working days) : dry food between 9 and 10 am, artemias at 2 pm and dry food again at 4 pm. The very young have also paramecias once a day (in the morning). In the week-end fishreceive artemias and dry food with an interval of 1 hour (dry food only once). 

If you don't need the fish to breed, I think you can give them only dry food, once a day, it will be enough to maintain them. Artemias and more dry food are required if you need a lot of eggs. 

Best regards, 

M. Winandy
