What do you use to enrich rotifers prior to feeding the fry?
Also, please walk me through your enrichment method.

I use the @Reef Nutrition rotifer culture system and add 2-3ml of their RGcomplete 2 to 3 times per day.

Anything that enhances the HUFA profile is what you need. I raised millions of redfish with rotifers enriched with something similar to what Reed sells now.

Yep I use the same system. I heard about enriching the rotifers to provide extra nutrition for my clownfish fry beyond what RGcomplete does. (I heard people use selcon for this purpose)
After posting this I realized reed sells more expensive food that essentially does the same thing.

Yep, that's what I was looking for, thanks.
Though I think I might opt for the Rotigrow plus that reed sells. Seems like an all-in-one type feed.
