I tried greenwater with Spotfin Shiner fry. I like being able to see how
many and how big the fry were. I use vinegar eels, egg yolk powder, ultrafine
spirulina powder, and paramecium and then switch to live baby brine.
Eventually, I wean minnows onto Hicari Micropellets or HBH Betta pellets.

Wow, 95% is great. I got 65% out of 200 Spotfin eggs.
