the red phase warmouth eggs hatched sometime within the last twenty four
hours. The male is not overly aggresdsive to the female unlike the last
pair I had spawn, he ripped her pelvic fins right off her body. This may
be due to the fact they are both nearly the same size ( 4 inches). I fed
them both crickets today, seems to be the magic food for larger sunfish.
Large lots of crickets can be bought cheaply and kept alive for a long time
with a nutirious diet that is passed along to the fish, and dusting the
crickets with vitamins at feeding.
The baby bantams are free swimming today, so they survived being siphoned
from the breeding tank into a bucket and then the bucket was dumped into
the raising tank.
