### What should I Feed my tropical fish?

What you feed your tropical fish will be typically determined by the size of the fish and if they are herbivores, omnivores or carnivores. Herbivores are more likely to eat the vegetables you provide however, that’s not to say the carnivore won’t try them. For fruits, I recommend grapes sliced in half with the peel taken off.

### How often should you feed fish in a pond?

You can get this feeding regimen either by feeding fish a maintenance ration daily or feeding as much as it appears they will eat one or two times per week. Since ponds usually have fish of various sizes, it is better to feed all they will eat on days fed than feeding a little every day.

### How much feed do I need for my fish?

If you plan to supplement with a commercial fish feed, then you may choose from the following three and aeration is recommended for these stocking rates. 100 per surface acre. 10 lbs. per surface acre minimum. 2000 per surface acre. 10 lbs. per surface acre minimum. 2000 per surface acre. 10 lbs. per surface acre minimum.

### How much fish feed do I need to stock?

If you do not plan to supplement with a commercial fish feed, then you may choose from the following three stocking rates. 10 lbs. per surface acre minimum. 10 lbs. per surface acre minimum. 10 lbs. per surface acre minimum. When stocking Grass Carp we recommend 10 per acre of vegetation.

### What size catfish should I stock with harvested channel catfish?

Harvested channel catfish periodically should be replaced with channel catfish that are at least 8 inches long. Also, you may want to periodically stock a few catfish to replace natural mortality, which I usually estimate at approximately 8% annually.

### How many catfish can a static pond hold?

Generally, according to the recommendation of the research, a static pond system has maximum stocking capacity of 1.8kg of fish per meter square. Arithmetically, the calculation is simple: 2000 meter square of static pond water can carry 3,600kg of catfish.

### What is the stocking density of a carp pond?

If you cultivate catfish with other carp fish, then the stocking density will be at most 2500 to 3000 per acre. You can increase the number, if you cultivate only catfish in a pond.

### What size catfish to stock with largemouth bass?

I usually stock 8- to 12-inch long channel catfish when largemouth bass are present. Harvested channel catfish periodically should be replaced with channel catfish that are at least 8 inches long. Also, you may want to periodically stock a few catfish to replace natural mortality, which I usually estimate at approximately 8% annually.

### Is it possible to calculate water volume in a static pond?

The calculation was done on static water pond with depth not specified. However, the volume of water must be known and I do hope we can all calculate water volume in any form of container based on our knowledge of elementary mathematics. Good!

### How many catfish can a pond hold?

Arithmetically, the calculation is simple: 2000 meter square of static pond water can carry 3,600kg of catfish. There is more to the above calculation because we still don’t know the number of fishes to stock.

### What is the best pond size for carp polyculture?

Ponds of 0.4-1.0 ha in size with water depth of 2-3 m are considered to be best for better management. The management practices in carp polyculture involve environmental and biological manipulations, which can be broadly classified as pre-stocking, stocking and post-stocking operations.

### What is the Optimal stocking density for koi carp in aquaponics?

Fingerlings of koi carp were stocked in different stocking densities as 1.4 (T1), 2.1 (T2), 2.8 kg m⁻³ (T3), and the control (1) 1.4 kg m⁻³ (C1) without hydroponic component. The control 2 (C2); plant grown in field condition was assigned to compare the efficiency with aquaponics.

### How to fertilize a carp production pond?

Fertilization measures for carp production ponds are recommended as follows. While 20-25% of the total amount of organic manures is applied as basal dose, a fortnight before the stocking, the remaining amount is applied in equal installments on a bimonthly basis.

### Why are channel catfish so hard to catch?

Just because of stocking from 100 to 150 per acre ponds, Channel catfish can affect a few diseases. Without supplemental feeding, fish can’t grow as fast as possible. Need to include extra things like crawfish, organic matter, insects, plant material, and insects to catch size.

### Can You restock a pond with catfish?

With proper management, a correctly stocked pond generally results in a balanced fish population, ensuring good fishing for years to come. You can restock catfish after you remove more than half of the fish from the original stocking. Remember to stock larger (8- to 10-inch) catfish to avoid feeding catfish to your bass in established ponds.

### What is the normal stocking density of Fry in a pond?

Determination of the rate of stocking depends mainly on the productivity of the pond and the type of management measures to be followed. The normal stocking density of fry suggested for rearing ponds is 0.1-0.3 million/ha.

### How much fish do I need to stock my pond?

Good! Another important thing you must predetermine before calculation begins is target size at harvest as well as expected mortality rate — usually between 5-10 percent. Generally, according to the recommendation of the research, a static pond system has maximum stocking capacity of 1.8kg of fish per meter square.

### Why is it important to estimate your pond surface area?

The importance of getting an accurate estimation of your pond surface area cannot be overestimated. The majority of pond owners visually estimate their pond area, which usually results in an overestimate of the true pond surface area. Pond area and water volume should be calculated based on some simple measurements.

### How do I calculate the volume of my pond?

Use the volume calculator to calculate the volume of a pond in litres or gallons. The liner calculator will work out the size of liner required based on the ponds dimensions. If you need to know how much water should to be pumped by a pump then use the pump calculator.

### How do you calculate residence time for a pond?

We calculate residence time by using the formula: 226 times the pond volume in acre-feet divided by the overflow rate in gallons per minute. For example, if we have an acre pond with an average depth of 5 feet, and an overflow rate of 10 gallons per minute, our residence time would be: 226 (5) / (10) = 113 days.

### How much water is in my pond?

The volume of water in the pond (in acre-feet) is calculated by simply multiplying the pond area (in acres) by the average pond depth in feet. Keep in mind that one acre-foot of water is equal to 325,851 gallons.

### How do I calculate the flow rate of my pond pump?

This can be calculated by dividing the pond volume by 2; E.g. If the pond volume is 6000 Litres, the pump flow-rate should be 3000 Litres per hour. When you have decided upon the pond type which would more closely describe your pond, you can begin to work out a flow-rate and look towards taking sunlight into account… 3. Sunlight

### How do you calculate the size of a pond liner?

Calculate the size of liner required. Enter the maximum dimensions of the pond. Also enter the amount of overlap required per side of the liner if any. Calculate the volume of water that the pump must be able to cycle every hour. However, static head and losses also need to be taken into consideration.
