    The baby RES pictured in your original post isn't ready for goldfish yet. A great protein source at this point is chopped or very small earthworms. Small bites of fresh tuna are good as well. For some fun, juvinile guppies are great, although your slider may not be able to catch them on his own yet.

    Probably not much fun for the guppies, Orv! [emoji226]
