Re:over-due dad?

seahorse love

Hi Pete,
Thank you. I have so many questions that keep coming up as we go along. I know the chances of this first brood surviving is minimal because we are so new at this. I am extremely confused about how to get the old brine out of the fry tank that is nutritionally null and void. Also, in our hatchery we have brine that has hatched and brine that is still hatching. How do we separate them or how do I know the fry is getting the nutritious brine? Do I partially drain the hatchery each day continuosly adding decapsulated eggs to it so brine is constantly hatching? The fry is tracking and I can see them snicking. What do their feces pellets look like? When I add the brine there are still unhatched eggs with it that I can’t separate and it falls to the bottom. Help!


P.S. We are going to buy a few of the filters you gave us the link to because we are having a hard time making the air bubbles the correct size. Also, you mentioned putting a charcoal cartridge in the filter. How do we do that? We cannot put the young in a regular reef tank until 6 months? Do you suggest what kind of tank we keep them in until that time?
