Salmon Check In

Once a day we have been checking in our salmon eggs.  We check the temperature of the water and look for unhealthy (or dead) eggs.  When we first received our eggs two were already dead and since then we've found three more dead eggs.  That was sad to learn about.

The exciting news though is that if our calculations are correct our little salmon eggs should turn into alvien later this week and the slowly swim their way into our redd (the big rocks at the bottom of our tank).  We'll keep you posted.

Here's what we look like during our daily visits.  We are thankful most of them are still healthy.  Did you know that in the real world only 1 and 10 eggs hatch.  We are doing our very best to keep the environment for them healthy in our tank.
