Many businesses here dont have nice websites so it may take months to source the right stuff locally. I usual check for a week or two and if that fails well then i will have to import.

I must first speak to my friend at the aquaculture farm for mesh as i only have a little bit and as you say i must speak to him at the same time about broodstock nutrition.

My black pair covered the roof of their clay pot with bright orange eggs last night. It is the largest clutch i have ever seen from them. I can see many eggs have white spots and i am not confident about the outcome, but this is a good sign right? I mean i am sure if i start to feed my new nutrition today that it can only get better. I appreciate you taking the time to help me as i am not a very experienced breeder. However, i have been reading and preparing for 6months while my broodstock settled in and that is why i can say i at least have 5 larvae through META now.

I see you mention white spots in clown eggs.I think this is normal in newly laid eggs :?
You can use a good salmon mesh in the meanwhile. :wink:

There are many good brands of pelleted fish food.For a breeding facility it is more convenient to purchase it in larger volumes.Commercial feeds for salmon and trout are almost as good as Otohime or Dragon feeds.Try to find some aquaculture feeds wholesaler.
