Jump to new posts Re: Believe I finally found leak source by teehjaeh57 @ 5 minutes 48 seconds ago

Hey Brad: What happened to your soilfloc treatment? Any improvement? Let us know when time allows, sounds like you still have an issue or maybe it's a new one?

Going to try and tackle my 4 year leaking problem again this spring/summer. 2/3 acre pond - dug and dammed - steep sides - 11' deep at deepest spot - hit shale when digging in an area about 1/3 the total size of the pond - covered bottom with minimu

Thanks John, I'm fine with the 15 foot depth. The problem is it is only in the middle....around the edge is so shallow. It can be 100' from the shoreline before it reaches 4 ft deep in some parts. Adam

I don't know if these are pure bred offspring or hybrid offspring because these seem like normal GSF but the largest fish in the pond are hybrids.

how long will blocking sunlight with die take to kill the veg? would it work in the cold weather? maybe apply die now and again the spring when the seeds begin to sprout? i just don't want to apply it and a gully washer come and dilute the die or it

Esshup, My water temps on surface have hit mid 50's in my 2 acre pond here in deep east Texas. My maximum depth is only around 9 foot now.I have a Kasco system with 3 bottom diffusers all placed in the deeper water and have been and still are running

Thanks Bill, and yes I did add the BioCycle in mid Oct. I recently learned I might have had to high of a pH and killed those little bugs. BioCycle has said they will cover the cost for another treatment after we get some rain to lower the pH. Stil

I will try to post pictures as things develop. The pond is still mostly empty with the limited precipitation we have had. The bottom is clay like my other ponds. Water lilies seem to spread fine in this, but lotus may be different. Of course, muc

Here's an old pic of beaver damage on a point on my big pond. Easily 150 feet of tunnels were eventually dug out and refilled. This was from hut building beavers. We also had beavers that didn't build huts on our dam. They're harder to find since

dfw, define monster re your goals. I think i know how to do it. I could have possibly done it and not caught it. I know guys who have found a dead one; like Alan Hall here. 95% of all fish donít make it to their first birthday and thatís okay. Raisin

Azteca, keeping the ice as cleared of snow as possible will allow light to penetrate, which will in turn allow algae and other oxygen producers to thrive under your ice.....no worries with skating.

Hello. Wow. Some place they say the asellus can produce antifreeze, a bit like frogs but frogs if they get caught in the ice they die. A+

Peaker, I'd suggest pure northern bluegill only in KY. Even IF most CNBG survive winters in your pond, you'll never see the growth from a CNBG that you will get from a northern BG, or even a Hybrid BG (BGxGSF). CNBG outside the warmest of climates
