Day 34: Everyone is doing well except the runt 🙁 he started getting picked on so he is now separated in his own container. He is doing better than last night but it’s a 50/50 chance he will make it. No one wanted to comply for a group photo so you’ll have to settle for some individual photos.

Sorry for your loss. It is never easy to lose any fish.

Day 44: Tragedy has struck the fry tank 😭 saw something was wrong with one fry then next thing we know 4 more went down. Went into action and noticed the water felt warm and heater was on and not switching off; it was 82° after a water change. We unplugged the heater but unfortunately we lost 6 fry already. Everyone else seems to be ok and it’s been 5 hours since this started so 🤞🏻 Hopefully we don’t loose anymore.

Day 46: and then there were 42 😭 lost 2 more last night I’m guessing from not recovering from the heater issue. We are officially at a 25% loss which considering we had 56 to start with isn’t bad but still 😭😭😭 crossing my fingers that no one else goes down hill. 94573AD3-676F-47DD-B032-7FCC85F3CBF0.jpegBFB791AA-992E-4127-96BA-1CFAC486F5F3.jpeg

Day 72: It’s been awhile since I did an update but here it goes… we lost a good portion of the Cardinals to the heater incident. Currently it looks like we are down to only 21 fry 😭. It sucks but we’ve made some mistakes and we will know what to do the next go around. Our male has put weight back on and we will move him back in with the female after Christmas and things settle back down. It is our first batch of fry so it was a learning experience for sure. We are going to do a different set up next round and see how they next batch does. They are still to small to sell still but at least they are starting to eat frozen food. 9FD0253C-E764-482C-ACE7-1BA396D427C2.jpeg
