      Gotta be careful with the fry. They are so delicate. Too much areation can kill them by the turbulance. Need to keep the water clean constantly. You gotta lot of work ahead of you. Try frozen baby brine shrimp if you are not making your own. It works great.

Was that the shiro utsuri spawning? On to the sanke,showa spawning...

      Hey Dan I run a flow thru on most everything. If I don't, I do huge daily water changes. Current water temps in the Q facilities are 66-70 degrees. I have covers for all tanks.

      Currently I am feeding them OSI microencapsulated larval feed - rotifer replacement. I also have a brine shrimp hatcher but need to set it up. Lots of food

      I usually shut the air off during the day and turn it on at nite. I will turn it down some. Thanks

      Where are you getting your OSI microencapsulated larval feed - rotifer replacement? I've been looking for something like that...

      that pint jar would be too many for one of my 825 gallon stock tanks.

      Hmmm. There's a lot of food on that site. Is this the stuff you are feeding them?

      Yes. I have a lot of different food in stock. In addition my tanks were prepared a long time ago and are thriving with life. Live shot of water at 100X http://www.koitv.net/ktv_v1.htm

      Wow. It looks like there is sure a lot for the fry to eat in there. What do you have growing in those tanks, and what did you do to get it all started? This is fry season and I'm sure a lot of people might be interested; especially when it is coming from the undisputed king of the mud ponds!

      That particular 4000 gallon tank is my main quarantine facility. Since I don't have any fish in it, I just left it filled with water for the last month or so.. The sun and nature did the rest. The water is green and filled with life. The 4 tanks at the swamp site are filled with mud pond water and have a lot of goodies too.

      I was hoping to raise some fry this season too, and wanted to make sure the water contained lots of natural food. But my fry tanks would be in an indoor room, so I wonder if I could even expect any of that stuff to colonize naturally. All I need to do is add artificial light and of course the algae will grow. But would rotifers etc. colonize the tank if it's not outside?

      I figure between 5-10 million fry? What do you think?

      I figure between 1-2 million. I think they are a lot thicker at the top where I dipped the jar. This tank is 7 ft deep. Also have fry from the varsity mud pond spawn in other tanks I got some culling to do.

      Actually, it would probably be more realistic for me to just stick a big container of water on the back deck and let the sun and nature do the rest. Then use that water to seed the tanks with life? What do you think? Better idea?

      I think that is a serious understatement. How old should they be when you do the first cull?
