What do you suggest feeding the baby tetras?

Does the photoperiod matter? I know that some fish you need to simulate longer days to trigger breeding seasons.

Tropical fish are typically going to have days(and nights) pretty close to 12 hours long - since they come from the tropics. It may be more of a factor with sub-tropical or temperate weather fish.

Light apparently can be an issue with the development of some tetra eggs(neon tetras IIRC).
