I have already started culling and about 100+ pieces have been culled today. :thumbs:

I have an overhead filter which used a strainer to prevent the fries from being sucked into the filter. :bath

You are welcome to have some but you will have to visit me first and that means crossing oceans. :peeka

Darn! Can't afford to go across the world for a fish. I'm sure they will be real beauties as your others are.

Perhaps if you gave those fish directions to your house, via waterways, of course, they could swim over.

Well, I would accept a few as a birthday present. My birthday is in March. *wink wink*

I don't think there are any direct waterways to my house unless they can find their way into Swartz Creek or McCully Lake, but they would have to get through the Great Lakes first.

You can have as much as you want but you must first find a way to deliver them.

Here is an updated photo. Not much change in shape but I noticed their bodies getting deeper and grown bigger in size. Estimated at more that a thousand fries have been culled.

lol, do you have any good relations with fish breeders in your area? -perhaps they'd be interested in taking some of your fry to raise?

my... they're starting to look like miniature ryukins with those deep bodies.

I'm curious to see how they turn out as adults...
