Age for grow out.

At what ages or size do you start moving fry to a grow out tank? I have a 55 gallon I'm setting up, My fry are currently in the 10g at 2 weeks old.

I start moving my fry at different ages...I base the move on fry size more than age per se'...the biggest fry get moved first...and depending on the number of fry they may stay in the 10gal spawning tank for a couple of months or more and some may get moved as early as 2-3 weeks...for me...this varies a lot...lol.....it also depends on how many I am moving and to what tank...too small in size and too few- they can get lost in too big of space and it can be harder to feed to get proper nutrition for best growth and development....but I also have lots of different sizes of tanks that I can use so I can stagger moves...but they almost always end up in the 75gal by 4 months of age....


I also condition my fry to a feeding tap of sorts....I give the rim (not the glass) two taps as I am adding the live food....I want them to associate the taps with food and this way I can always get them to come when called...lol.....makes catching, observation and counting easier.....

I think I will end up dividing my 55 off in 3 sections and as the grow take out a divider. That way they have room but not to much that they can't find food or get lost.
