When do I start feeding the fry? I've read that its a few days after the are free swimming. Anything more specific to watch for?
I tried to take a picture, and its not happening with my cameraphone. I'll have to find the cable for the camera.
You might keep an eye on the yoke sacks and start feeding when you notice that they are gone from some of the fry. What are you planning on feeding ? If baby brine shrimp, I'd get the hatchery going now. Good luck !
