Finally my VT fries have grown to 1.3 in. Now they're nipping at each other's fins and need to jar them. I don't want to use plain old jars that look too boring so I thought, if I'm gonna jar them, I'm jarring them in style.

Those are cute. Does the cover come off to make it easier to change the water?

That is neat, and looks good. I have to ask... Why are you using gravel in jars? There's no real purpose to it besides aesthetics and it takes up valuable and limited room for water... Otherwise, I think it's a great idea.
I jarred them with a half gallon bottle, do you think I should take out the gravel?

Gravel will hold in fish waste. Depends on if you give the bottles a full rinse out when you change water or not.

I do wash it 100% every other day, all 20 of them. I just don't know what to do with the new batch, a hundred of them. They're turning a month old in 10 days.

I hate to say it, but ... deli cups. You just can't do fancy jarring with that many fry. Learned from experience.

What, the deli cups or the bottles? Deli cups are the things that you get when you buy potato salad or something at an over the counter deli. You can buy them in bulk at places like Smart & Final. Don't forget lids.

The bottles? No idea. That's an awful lot to get the old fashioned way... ;)
