After a long hiatus, Sapphire Tag 0565 broods again

Looking almost identical to its brother 0565, this is Sapphire brooder tag 0560, who is currently resting. Hopefully, it would not be too long before he broods again ... we are all waiting in anticipation.

Sapphire Gold brooder tag 0565, today is his big break day, action is about to begin.

Catching the very first glimpse of the fries, all around 1.5 to 2 inches long.

Out come the precious little tots, all wriggling their way to the New World.

Out come the very last few pieces of fry ...

A routine scan to confirm its tag number, to be shown to Mr Wong, an AVA officer standing nearby for the harvest inspection.

At the base of the harvest net are 26 young fries, all ready to make an impact!

Some of the other brooders in the same pond.
