White eggs in the ribbons means dead eggs probably due to the ribbon not being well fertilized as the female released it. This could be and is probably due to not a high proportion of males in the pond. The initial stockings of perch are sometimes skewed toward mostly males or females. This should be not as big of a problem as the perch population in the future receives more naturalized recruitment.

Spotted a few more ribbons today. Does anyone have a guess how long it will take for them to get big enough for the LMB to get interested in them? I thought that might be a good time to add some FHM from my sediment pond to take some pressure off.

I placed a ribbon in a 10 gallon tank hanging from a stick. Fast forward to today and they are hatching like gang busters. I also treated the water with an anti fungal tablet after the eggs were put in. Now I’m setting up a 8 foot circular stock tank for them. The plan is to recirculate water from the pond through it. I will be using a 100 micron mesh at the outflow with a larger mesh in front of that to catch larger debris.

That sounds like a good plan.

You might also have the new record for the smallest micro grow-out pond. I calculate your YP fry pond at .00115 acres!

Good luck on your project.

It’ll be fun anyways. There’s at least a few hundred that have hatched in the 10 gallon now. Headed to purchase pump and other items for the stock tank. Been netting various sorts of plankton from the pond to feed them so far. Not hoping for much, but maybe 50 to survive and be feed trained before releasing. There’s still hundreds if not more trying to hatch from the ribbon.

Hello.

It is always fun to breed from eggs.

Me like last year I put my eggs in my small pond, and in addition this year I put eggs in a 300 gallons tank.

Good luck, have fun.

Thanks, this tank should be 700 plus gallons. From the research I've done they say its easier to raise them in a circular tank so that's a plus. The fry are already attempting to eat krill powder. Too cool!

It will probably be a Kansas tornado by the end of next week!

(Finally, a "tornado" that is a good thing.)

Hello.

Here is the beginning of my installation of my tank.
I should be finished within 1 to 2 days.

How are you with your fry.
I hope you are fine.

This picture gives people a very good perspective of how small and deep Azteca's yellow perch fry - fingerling pond (forage) pond is in relation to the 300 gallon tank. At lot can be accomplished with creativity.
