Tomorrow My fry will be 5 weeks old. Today I learned a valuable lesson with fry feeding.
I killed about 4 fry today, I didn't chop up the frozn brine shrimp well enough and apparently the 4 fry choked on the shrimp. I thought that if it was too big the fry would spit it back out, but I guess it's like they say their eyes were biggr than their stomachs.
This is exactly why I did CT as my first spawn, I knew I would make mistakes and because you can buy CT's at the petstore I figured I could stand to lose a few.
I siphoned out all the big pieces, and tomorrow I will try again with well chopped brine shrimp.
I did learn a trick for the chopped bloodworms. I can't seem to get them chopped good wwhen I chop only one or two cubes at a time in the food processor, so I added all the cubes of frozen bloodworms and chopped them while they were still frozen, then I took a littlemeasuring spoon and spooned the chopped worms back into the plastic cubes that they came from. I took one cube and let it thaw, then I tried to siphon out some of the water/blood with a piece of cloth so I didn't dirty my water too much. This worked really well.
