Fry are growing and getting quite active, eating like little pigs.

they get a mix of baby brines and cyclops, now augmented with powdered brineshrimp flake. they are growing fast and total losses on this hatch have been 5. hard to count but there are close to a hundred still going, most likely a few more than i think as a picture of half the box shows 78 but the little suckers are so freaking active. I have two females that are acting like they have eggs in their caves so i will have more soon .... I am expanding the brooder setup to 36" inches long 5" inches wide and 8 deep so i can hold them all.
