    Default When to Stop Feeding Egg Yolk Mix?

    Hey All,

    I'm on Day 11 after free-swim with my first artificially raised batch. About 130 strong fry.

    I've been feeding egg yolk mix smeared along the edge of the bowl they float in. Also been been feeding BBS since Day 3.

    Am I good to shift entirely to BBS now? I currently have the Salt Lakes variety.

    The fry seem to love the egg yolk still. They constantly swim around the edge of the bowl looking for it. But it fouls the water something fierce and I'd like to shift away from it.

    Would love any feedback from experienced breeders. Thank you!

    Stop feeding the yolk when all of the fry
    are eating bbs. You can tell when all of
    their bellies are orange.

    Thanks Cliff! I ended up shifting them to BBS that following day, based simply on their age. They all tool to it well. But your belly-color input will help make that decision easier on future batches.
