You know Bad Brian, a good businessman would sell naming rights to those ponds.

SB,

Yes the red lines are approximately where I want the new Topias. I have to see the lay of the land to be sure where to properly place them.

Al,

If I had been a better businessman, I would have. I am glad they have the names they have, they are all special to me.

It looks like I am going to have to wait for all this rain to stop and let the area dry out a little before I can get in there with the dozer and start shaping the area. With over four inches Friday night, everything was soaked to the core. The good news is that the syphons are running well.

Alrighty then, I can respect that. I was thinking of sponsoring one of your ponds, but I'm not sure I would pick a name you would be familiar with.

Ozarka pond water, blue clay similar to Boise State's ball field, sun dried mealy worms, basically all the amenities. Kind of like a Jerry World of brood ponds. I'm sure your fish won't miss the Bellagio fountain I was gonna put in. Just don't tell them about it, and all will be fine.

Allen,
They say if you were going to put in an O2 bar, a grass shrimp buffet, and soft spawning matts that they are in! Oh and they want the fountain. That is their final offer.

Eric,
We are working on it! I sure hope it turns out that way.

Who's they? I was planning on bringing some slow moving XXL CNBG baby makers to the new digs.

Of course 6 is such a pedestrian number. Maybe you need 7 new ponds. It's just dirt and diesel.

Okay, its bee a while so I thought I would bring everyone up to speed on the brood ponds.

Well the new extra topias are built. We have the original three and now there are four new ones. There is room for one more after we burn the brush pile.

All in all, this is going to be a great summer. Now I need to fill the new four as we burn the brush. It is going to take a little while to get all of the brush burned off, it is a rather large pile!

I'll post pictures as soon as I can.

Also, tilapitopia is going strong. We have spawned several groups of fry and the fry are doing great! This summer, we should be building the permanent tilapitpoia in the barn and setting up our new solar setup. work work work!

It all sounds great Brian. If memory serves me, the lay of the land in that area gives you the ability to lay some pipe where turning a valve would empty each one into the lake. I think I read where your plans included the piping. it sounds like it all will be fun. I know you have plans for each little pond so when u do the next dig, I like the ghost shrimp mentioned here that grow in Mo. or how bout those big ole shrimp grown out in S.Tex. smile Perla Ranch or whatever the name is. Hay! this is fun, just making suggestions lol

Redears can be on the list! I do have a good selection in the big pond to choose from.

We don't have a lot of solid info on Redears in a closed observable environment. Things like growth rates , spawning numbers , male/female id , pellet rearing and more. We have Shorty's thread and some other info but could use some good observation and analysis.

Eric,
Sounds like a good project for some one like me.

John,
Seven and counting, number ocho will be in the works after all the brush plies are cleared.

Oh what to do next!!
