Splitting the brood

Well, we have a few of the 15 week old babies that are now really starting to show growth spurts that are leaps and bounds ahead of the rest and as we lost one of the smaller babies this week it seems that now is the time to split them.

I now have 2 tanks for the 15 week olds.  The tank with the biggest babies in it will only get frozen food now, and the smaller babies tank will continue to get live brine as well as the frozen.  I want to give them every opportunity to grow as big as their brothers without having to compete with them for the food.

The bigger babies are really hard to get a good picture of now because they are constantly on the move!  The orange one loves to play in the current and is constantly swimming back and forth in the flow!

There he goes again!  Sorry for the blurry picture...
