Hi Vicky,

All my fries are now eating decap just fine. I hatch bbs ok. I use four 20 Oz Coke bottles. I do not use light or heat so it took longer to hatch. So I use all four bottles 12 hours apart and harvest at 36 hours.

If I put them in a bucket (dollar store) with 7.5W hydor heater then they hatch faster within 24 hours.

I do not have that much bbs eggs so I do not even bother to store them in the refrigerator. I am going to buy just enough to last for about 6 months so that I do not have to keep bbs eggs in the frig.

My bbs egg is about 1 year old store at RT; I think I got about 60% hatching rate (just estimate).

Where do you buy grindal worms?

I got a culture a while back on AB and have been harvesting but I haven't recultured. I need to do that before it crashes; I just keep forgetting to get the soil or moss everytime I shop.

7 Weeks + 5 Days

Today my plaket fries are 7 weeks and 5 days old. I think all ICKS are gone. Those ICKIES are nasty; it took me 3 weeks of treatment to get them off the fries.

Hi Vicky,

Thank you. How are you? When are you ready to split grindall worm, would you please sell me a box of them? I think my fries are kind of big for bbs but not ready for pellet.

They eat now mostly decaps and some life bbs.

Still have not done it Tan.
I got some organic soil but it was infested with fruit flies and haven't gone to shop for more, I alway forget.
My fry are 4.5 weeks and are now eating pellets, you just need to crush them.

I have all kind of baby food such decap bbs eggs, instant bbs, golden pearl, but I feel bad not feeding them live food. Even though now they all eat 100% decap bbs, I still feed them live bbs. They make me guilty not to feed them live food .

2 Month Birthday

Fries are now two month old. They are smaller than most other breeders but very healthy. ICKS are gone.
