Jump to new posts Re: My ponds seem to be fishless.... by nvcdl @ 24 minutes 15 seconds ago

Should I aerate?
Jump to new posts Re: Should I turn off daytime aeration? by DrLuke @ 58 minutes 33 seconds ago

Do you have a way of measuring the water temp in your pond? Daytime aeration in warm weather can raise the average temp of your pond, and cooler water preferring species like WE and YP can get stressed (or potentially die) in too warm of water.

Thanks. The old pond on the property is very old and has 100 ft trees growing on the dam slope some of them dead. The overflow pipe buried in the dam is corroded and shortened by several feet. The trees will have to come out to restore the dam int

I have no experience with this feeder, however I've tried multiple feeder manufacturers and my original TH continues to run without fail going on season 10. I've purchased or been gifted 5 other feeders during that time for half the cost of a TH uni

I remember a picture somewhere showing a feeder hanging on a big rope or cable over a pond. Next pic showed a bear hanging by all four feet at the feeder.
Systems questions
Jump to new posts Re: Aeration questions by blkandst @ Today at 03:36 PM

I figured out my pond is about 5,186,160 gallons. 3 regular vertex diffusers will give me almost that (8ft average) in a 24 hour period. So 6 diffusers should put me turning my pond over twice in a 24 hour period. Is my pump enough to handle that?

Hey quarter acre. Would a gast 1022 be good enough for his pond? I just purchased a gast 1022 3/4 horse and my ponds a tad bigger than his. Looking to see if it would work. Thanks

I compost our FA and also use it "green" after it has dried a couple days on the pond shore as mulch/weed barrier straight into the garden.

JohnR...that "low spot" in the corner of your dam is, in all likelihood, your emergency spillway in case a huge rain event occurs that the primary drain can't handle. You will need to lower your pond level and build a coffer dam to get in
