Just wanted to give you an update. My babies are 6 weeks old. WOW! I still can’t believe it. Still have thirty left.I have been feeding the cyclopeze with shaved frozen mysis. They are still frowning on the Mysis. I also feed the enriched brine shrimp (ten day old). I mix up the enrichment. Using tiso algae w/ selco and switch to vibrance 1,. MY new ranch consist of 100 babies that are now are now 3- weeks old. Because of my little experience with the first ranch these guys have been eating new artemia along with 1/4" BBS (enriched) with lots of cyclopeze. These guys are growing quick I have been offering frozen shaved frozen mysis to these guys also. All I know this is a full time job, cooking food, vacumming along with water changes round the clock. I enjoy every minute of it. These babies are so fascinating I could watch them all day. The new 3-week old are in a 10-gallon tank. With approximate of a hundred of them I feel I need to break these guys out. Just an update for you guys. I’m hoping sooner than later they start eating the shaved mysis. I just wish these guys would quit studing it for so long and then swim away. Thanks for your great advice Pete.
