Day 4 of the Faith and Fabio first larval run

The larvae are looking good today and have full tummies :).

I'm trying to keep the smaller food items at a density of at least 5 per ml. I'm using cultured parvocalanus nauplii and ciliates as well as sized screened wild plankton. The ciliates are from older copepod cultures and are the same size as parvocalanus nauplii but move a little differently, (quick and random but not moving very far). I'm also adding small amounts of microalgae. Just enough that the water has a tinge of color.
