"Your adventure has begun!"
Had a snack while waiting to hear from my teacher. Dill havarti and italian herbed flat breads mmmm
oh dear.... (piglet from winnie the pooh voice)
And then I finally got to feed the sea lamprey ammocoetes
They came in a box filled with sand
Prepared a holding tank for them
Covered the bottom with sand for them to burrow, since that's what they like to do. The water in here is straight from the river, unfiltered and untreated. It was soooo cooold
Dissolved baker's yeast and sand
There they are! The larger ones are only about 15 cm long
Put the yeast and an oxygen tube in and they are good to go until the morning. They will filter the yeast out of the water overnight as they are in a filter feeding stage of life
Just since this morning these have grown over 1 centimetre!
The peppers have also gotten a bit bigger.
As my teacher said to me today, my adventure has begun! We will be making the small observation tanks for the sea lamprey Monday. I also have another test and an evening class. Better get lots of sleep Sunday night.
