Found one in the LFS fish bag I brought home today. Noticed my plattie seemed particularly interested in the bag. Turns out a baby guppy came along for the ride.

What should I feed him? Got him in a seperate tank, but not idea what to feed something so small? Any suggestions?

You can just crush some flake food real fine and should be able to eat that. I did that with mine. I also fed several times a day and sure did grow fast.

Any suggestions on the tank size? I have him in a little like half gallon tank that hangs on the inside of the 20gal I have. Should I consider a different tank? Or should this be fine?

one of those hang on or floating fry rearing thing should be fine. if you really want to make sure he gets a feed you could crush up some flake food and mix it with a bit of tank water then use a pippette/seringe to target feed him. they're extremely hardy little fellas so you shouldn't have any problems.

good luck with the little fella
