11/5/18- The fish are beginning to swim up! :)
3 partially developed alevins were removed. There is a gap in the yolk sac for all three. You can see this in the picture below.
Number = 419 live trout
11/6/18- Three alevins were removed.
Number = 416 live trout.
11/7/18- Since more fish are swimming to the surface, I added a pinch of size 0 food.
11/9/18- I bought a second basket to hold the healthier, more developed fish. Remember, St Ann School received not one, but TWO bags of eyed eggs! As a result, I figured it was time to start giving the little guys some more room. Scroll down to see the new basket!

*Note: The reason the first basket looks squished together is because I put the bag on the inside rather than the outside of the frame. When I first received the eggs and had the bag on the outside of the frame, I noticed that some of the fish eggs were getting squished between the bag and frame. It was safer for them to have it the way it is now.
Three alevins were removed. One fry was removed. This is a video of one of the alevins I pulled out of the tank that first appeared to be dead before examining more closely: https://youtu.be/Keaflh55EWw
Number = 412 live trout.
WATER QUALITY UPDATE:
Two baskets for our growing fish family :)
Here are some pictures I took of one of the alevins and the first fingerling that was dead. You can see there is a bump on the fingerling's head, which suggests that this may have caused it to die early in development.
I used a digital microscope to capture the images.
