Great pic


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Azteca, after your video, another video popped up from your channel. Are those YP attacking the floating feed? Wow!! How did you train the yellow perch to be so aggressive to eat fish food?

I love to see that!

Hello.

The larvae you see below the light are trained to accept food by a feeder, who is just above the light and who gives food all night, every night.

I start with the food starter 0.5, and later with the 0.7.

The YP I originally purchased from Rex (Rainman) five years ago were all feed trained. All offspring have remained feed trained. I recently cleaned 8 nice sized YP all caught at the north end of our pond (feeder and sunken cedar trees are all at south end).
It’s only a 1ac pond, but when cleaning the fish, I was surprised to see the Optima BG feed in every one. I didn’t think they traveled around the pond that much.


6 yr old pond, 1 ac, 15' deep.
RES, YP, GS, FHM (no longer), HBG (way too many), SMB, and HSB (didn’t make it. 0 seen in 5 yrs)
I think that's about all I should put in my little pond.

Hello.

After about 1 month the fry now stand together they have about 3/4 to 1 inch.

I would like to make a video, but you will see hundreds of tadpoles attract by the light an the food, but for the work they do I am ready to let them take some food from the fry, my pond is free to filamentous algae and clean.

I can't wait to see when the Yellow perch fry will start to spin under the light if the tadpoles will stay there.

Hello.

Some Yellow-perch in a limited space (a tob), with the current of a pump of 3000 gallons per hour.

Hello.

2 weeks ago I gave a lot of fry to a friend in exchange for a 300 gallon tank, I don't know how many fry I have now, I will keep them until the end of September, then I will give them.

I can't wait to work with the tank, I will put eggs in it and feed the larvae in drip below the light up to 12 to 15 days.

Despite my mistakes, I have fun, I hope you like these little video, as they get bigger I will make other video

Hello.

I changed the food for bigger food since 2 weeks.

There is only about 2 feet of water and with the temperature of 35c-36c I keep about 3/4 of the pond in full shade, otherwise the water would become too hot and I would have a profusion of filamentous algae, there is no more tadpole to eat the algae.

Since about 3 weeks the small perch start to turn around the light at a good speed they are conditioned.

The perch are growing well. Some of them are chubby sized and well fed.

azteca - I am thinking the smallness and shallow nature of your fry-fingerling pond works to your benefit in that it helps promote the good success that you have in feed training the perch. Fish are more concentrated and more likely to find the initial food offering. Good work there.
