We placed 146 eggs in the redds today. Only 3 casualties from shipping. The bag water was 55-56 degrees so I left the tank at that temperature as well, the Ammonia levels were higher than the tank but the Nitrate levels were higher in the tank so we mixed the water in the bag half and half to acclimate them before adding to the tank. They are happily resting and feeding on their egg sacs. I have not spotted movement yet, but the embryos are still really early in development.
