The Trout Eggs Arrive

The trout eggs arrived today right after lunch from UPS from Bellefonte, PA.

They were shipped in a white styrofoam cooler to keep the eggs and trout food cold. 

First, we put the bag of trout eggs in a green bucket.
Then we cut open the bag and poured the eggs into clear plastic cups.
It took hours, but eventually we separated all of the live eggs from the dead ones.

We tied a basket in the tank about 1/3 the depth of the water.

We placed about 1/4 of the eggs in the basket and the rest we put on the bottom of the tank.
