Spawn Log - Giant

I was planning on making this log at the end of this month. But since I'm no longer power growing these guys..... I thought there wouldn't be any difference. Further I will be posting in pieces.

Sorry about the bad pictures from a phone camera. And Sorry about the layout. I tried to make it short and easy to view..... but I just couldn't.

I hope all you giant lovers can learn something from this log..... enjoy

Thanks.
TBH this spawn turned out to be a big disappointment. Though the male is a very good father, unfortunately he has a bad genetic background so his fry has poor form .... I bred him to this female 3 times (totally lost the second spawn) - I also bred him to 2 other females; one showed similar results and the last one are still small (thought I totally lost everything until I saw 2 fry a few days ago. Now I see 11 fry- in other words I didn't feed them at all).

The bright side is that I'm beginning to understand more about giants.

Most of them were growing at the same rate. Some were extra big but grew almost at the same rate - they didn't out grow the others after the 1 week mark.

nice turn out,
can't wait till summer so i can be producing some nice size spawn.
long daylight with wormy food.
make the fry grow like weed.
im surprise that your fish don't pick on each other since your feeding them bloodworm.
