11:Should we just leave the fish bag in the water for 10-15 days and let the fish swim out batch by batch?
No. You should keep fish bag in a moist environment but not totally wet. So you should always put this back into the reseal-able plastic bag provided and seal it tightly each time.

12:Should we pump oxygen into the water?
Not necessary. You can keep tap water for one day or under the sun for about 2 hours before usage. What you should do is change the water frequently to keep the water clean and there'll be ample oxygen. Please note each time you only change about one third of the water. Otherwise, the fish might not adapt to the totally new environment.

13:Is there any special requirement for the fish's environment?
Water Temperature only. The storage temperature is 15-35°C and the best temperature range for hatching is 18-30°C. Please do take note that the temperature we refer to is the water temperature, not your room temperature.

If there's big difference in size between the fishes, adult fish will bite or even eat baby fish when it is hungry.

The appetite of baby fish is small, so you just need to hatch a small "pinch" of brine shrimp each time. The brine shrimp supplied is enough for baby fish to grow up to approximately 2 cm long. When the fish reaches this size, you can start using other fish food to feed it, for example frozen petrified worms or brine shrimp. Just do not feed it with dry commercial fish pellets.
