I am happy to announce that we finally had hundreds of tilapia fry swimming in the tank yesterday.
So yesterday morning I scooped up as many as I could and relocated them into a fry nursery basket I made to protect them from becoming food for the adult fish. They are free to swim in and out of the basket as they wish. Hopefully they will stay inside the protected environment of the basket until they grow bigger and no longer can swim through the small mesh holes.
Congratulations! I feel like I should be smoking a cigar on your behalf or something...
