On planetcatfish "According to some reports, in nature it feeds on insect larvae. Fry require more protein in the form of baby brine shrimp, etc."

My husband suggested ant eggs.   I would assume it's possible to get them since zoos and things need large quantities to feed anteaters and the like.

Yes 264s I had to tumble, male  is always kicking out 3 month in a row, most of the eggs get fungus and I ended up with 20 fry. I had to steal the eggs from the male in day#2 and tumble the eggs. Let's see how the fry will turn out to be, these are wild 264s. Some fry are turning light brown, some times it might carry L263 gene. LOL
