    Default A tip for checking fry quality.

    As I get ready to ship out the 2018 challenger grow out fry to our daring contestants I have been trying to weed out any fry with defects
    It can be challenging doing that in a tank of 30 active 2 "fish... try a 100s .at much smaller size moving around like spazzes thinking the feeding guy is there.

    I tried using a regular flash light but its not strong enough. My tip is if you have a smart phone with a flash download a flashlight app..try that. It works awesome making it possible to clearly see things like gill plates. It also slowes them down a bit.lol.

    I think it would help even with larger fry Juvies etc..

    FYI, I read that 99% of all flashlight apps contain malware or spyware.
