It's always great to read about how people are tackling their unique feed issues in creative ways!
I think it's important to keep in mind that the starter sizes are very very small. I don't think the 0, 1, & 2 would throw in a feeder, and if they do it would probably make a mess.
A rough idea
#0 - <50 microns (It is between flour and sugar)
#1 - 800 micron (close to the size of a period . )
#2 - 1.2 mm (about two periods in diameter)
#3 - 1.8 mm
#4 - 2.5 mm
We are convinced that trophy fish are made in the first few months after hatch, so we've spent a lot of time researching starter feeds. Although we are extremely happy with our starter feed lines, we have found some ways to improve them, and are currently in the process of getting them updated. The starter #3 line is the first one we are changing out, and so it is not currently on the website. Once we get everything updated it will be back!
We've been offering 10 lb buckets...but we have a heck of a time sourcing buckets and lids that consistently work together. They are 2 lb buckets nearly identical to the type to can find in the paint section at a local home improvement store.
Since most people don't really need 40 lbs of those tiny feeds, we will continue to offer 10 pound versions...but they will likely change from 10 lb buckets to 10 lb bags this year.
I tried mixing some of the 0, 1, 2 feed with larger pellets in the hopes of getting the feeders to throw it together. Worked a little better, but eventually the tiny stuff would lock together like concrete in the high humidity of east Texas.
Would a drop feeder work better?
