Polk Elementary School - The Trout are Moving to the Big Tank
January 27, 2010
Our Sack-Fry have consumed all of the nutrients in their egg sacks, and are passing through the Swim-Up Stage. This is when they swim up looking for food. As they begin to feed, they will be in the Fry Stage. They are getting bigger, and the egg basket is getting crowded. It is time to move them out of the egg basket into the big tank. There have been some losses, but that is normal.
