What a way great way to start the morning. I had a huge hatch of Nem. whitei. The eggs arrived yesterday from a friend, Fred Behrman, who was also kind enough to send me some Nothos and A. australe. So now I have a few tanks filled and am planning on more. I also received some eggs from an Aquabid win and am expecting white worm and grindal worm starters today. Its nice to be a little bit more seriously back into the hobby.
I still have a lot of work to do in the fishroom – building stands for larger fish and grow out tanks, but at the moment I have 25 tanks – 5G to 30G – up and running.
I have my brine shrimp hatcheries up and running, but I think my bs eggs have gone bad. I will be getting some from Brine Shrimp Direct immediately to have good hatches. BBS are a staple in my fish room. Fortunately I have frozen BBS for the older fry and fish. I have been using paramecia and decapsulated BBS (too bad they do not hatch out) for the fry. Hopefully this weekend at the Suncoast Killifish Society meeting there will be a culture of microworms available in the auction.
