Many schools have reported that their eggs have hatched into alevin. Yay!
You do not need to start feeding your trout until some have lost their egg sac… the receive nutrients from this egg sac, so feeding is just wasteful until they need it. So, when some have lost/absorbed their egg sac, you can start by feeding then the size 0 food. Then, when you run out of size 0, you can start with size 1… then move onto size 2.
If you need more food at any time, please let us know.
