Congratulations!

If you don't have fry food you could grind the prima bits into powder.

It should work.

Kribs normally find enough food for themselves areound the tank.

The best option would be to do as Tienie says, grind some granules into a powder and use a pippete to blast a little bit over where the little ones are feeding.

You can take and smash flake food for them. The perants will in sure that they find food. I loved watching my pr take there fry around the tank looking for food. Kribs are super parents. I hope you have some good times with your as I did with mine. I left mine with mom and dad for around 10 days before I pulled them. Right before the spawning started back up, once the spawning starts again the parents will hurt and eat the fry. Mine spawned every 11 to12 days.
