Trout made it home from Golden Ponds, Bar 1. The kids wanted to name them all.....


That was an easy decision - "DINNER"... They weren't impressed.

We went with 12. Probably loose 2-3 more yet, see how we go.

Had a straggler or two swimming on the surface last night and today, so I went and got an aerator and that already seems to be making a difference.. Fingers crossed...

Had 4 less dinners leave us today. They are finally starting to eat though....

These trout are a little frustrating...!
Put in an aerator today, just to make sure they are
Getting the required oxygen...


Is there such thing as too much oxygen for these little fellas to be happy.

I'll just say, they have been the big ones that have died too. The small ones seem to be hardy enough, to fight through it....



Any help would be great.. Thanks

You can never have enough air, trout get very stressed when moved around, try refrain from catching them out and stiring things up, keep that air pumping full time.
