Mike,the well will cost a lot, so I probably won't be able to do it till we build.I also need to know where the house will set for sure before drilling a well.I know the back of the house will only be about a 100' from the pond, but may be moved 50'-

I'm not surprised, the RES I had in my aquarium a few years ago loved eating FHM although 2-1/2" was about the upper limit of what they would eat. They would try to eat longer ones but would spit them out if they couldn't get their mouth closed.

Only one windmill in a 1.8 acre pond will not adequately mix that size of pond. At the very best one windmill mixes acceptable amount for 0.5-0.7 ac. From my limited experience with spring fed ponds they rarely winter kill which depends a lot on amou

Shadow, First, make sure of what type of weed you have. Take some good, clear, close up photos, best on a white background and post them if you can. Some types of chemicals work better than others on different types of vegetation. There are some p

I do not think it is an American Bullfrog tadpole based on coloration. It also differs from typical Green Frog tadpoles I see routinely in ponds. Others to consider include one of the leopard frogs as well as the Bronze Frog that is a close relativ

I doubt seriously I'll ever see a truly balanced pond. Heck, I got no idea how many pan fish or BH I actually have. All I can do is go by what I see in the shallows and when I feed. I do know the LMB seem to have adjusted to their new home. I see th

If they are going into waters with existing adult predators then please habituate them.

Jump to new posts Re: How adaptable are LMB? by ewest @ Today at 12:34 PM

There are a number of reasons not to bucket stock. One is noted above. A little twist to the rational. Bucket stocking LMB into any water that has an existing LMB over 2 years old is a problem because of the carrying capacity and competition for food

Watch for a ball of tiny fingerling black fish about the size of a basketball or larger. That will be the BH fry. You can dip net them out as the ball nears shore. Or just let the LMB take care of them. In one of my old threads I post a link to an a
