I probably don’t keep as meticulous of records as I should, but the blog here allows me to keep decent notes, rather easily and quickly. From that, it’s possible to reconstruct what’s happened over the past 2 years in terms of spawns and their results, leaving perhaps a few gaps or uncertainties. Here’s a recap, to the best of my records and recollection.
Spawn #34 – small hatch
Spawn #33 – now settled, probably 50-100 fish so long as I don’t screw it up.
Spawn #32 – all died
Spawn #31 – failed collection
spawn #30 = 10 or so alive, all in BRT, looking good
spawn #29 – failed hatch
spawn #28 – mostly failed hatch, all dead
spawn #27 = all at Mike’s – many alive (50+) and looking great
spawn #26 = all dead
spawn #25 = hatch failure?
spawn #24 = hatch failure
spawn #23 = not pulled
spawn #22 = all dead
spawn #21 = was 5 (3L 2WS), the 3L disappeared, found one in the sump, of the two remaining white stripes; perc killed them down to 1, and the survivor is in really rough shape as of today.
spawn #20 = no survivors
spawn #19 = no survivors
spawn #18 = no survivors
spawn #17 = no survirors
spawn #16 = no survirors
spawn #15 = By Nov 28th only 2 alive – I never did account for them, but I presume these were a couple that randomly “went missing” (it seems that many fish wind up going down a certain screened drain pipe)
spawn #14 = 2 lightnings and 1 White Stripe – I remember culling a batch quite heavily, and I’m assuming what is still here (LM19, LM20, WS17) are from that batch.; 10-24-13
spawn #13 = I have it noted as , hatched 9-30 (this might also be LM18, but it seems too small to have made it in with LM17 by the time I first documented it)
spawn #12 = no survivors
Spawn #11 = failed
Spawn #10 = ? (8-16-2013) – 1 survivor went in with fire clowns, LM18; based on other timelines, this is most likely where LM18 came from, because he was younger than LM19 and LM20
Spawn #9 = failed
spawn #8 = vanished (failed)
spawn #7 – failed hatch
spawn #6 = missed hatch
spawn #4 = (4-5-2014) – LM17 came from this clutch.
spawn #3 = no dice.
spawn #2 = where all the 2012 crop came from
Spawn #1 = they ate it…
