    Fantastic job Bill! get a pic of the remaining eggs so we can see if they are viable or not. In your information sheet you have it put down that you feed the larva 1 cup of rotifers 5 times a day, if you have the rotigreen you dont need to feed that much. When I raised my clarkiis in clear water I only fed an 8 ounce coffe cup of rotifer culture 3-4 times a day and they were fat. When making your hatch report make sure you state that you are using rotifer culture to feed not a whole cup of strained rotifers, cuz that would be like 20 gallons of rotifer culture at high density. LOL. Great Video! those buggers are usually pretty hard to see.






    P.S.- tell Jim that you are signed up through the MBI so you can get your cool award sticker!
