Yeah Nhibbo, it was a shame to harvest them a few weeks early, I'm off to the hospital this afternoon and wont be home until 7:00pm. That also helped with the decision to harvest early.

One of the runts I've kept and put it in the sump with the goldfish, there's no sun hits the sump and I'm running misting, so the runt has a chase of making it.

Gee that's pretty warm in your greenhouse, wait until we get weather up into the 40's.


Weather in the 40s, how nice is that ?
Will get into the 40s, too. :D
But with a F and not a C

Gnoib, we usually get 3 to 4 days above 40 degrees Celsius every summer, if the day before, and day after are cooler you can keep your fish alive. Most years there has not been 2 x 40 plus degrees days in succession, but you don't usually get past November before it gets too hot.

When you get 3 or 4 hot nights thrown in, it's time to harvest your fish.

The little runt I put in the sump has survived the hot weather and is quite happy in with the goldfish. It just follows the goldfish around, it hasn't tried to chew any of their tails off so far. They are all bigger than the Trout so it might not cause them any problems.

Gnoib, this fish is now doing very well, it wasn't deformed or had any sign illness, so it's now coming on at a great rate. Being in the sump with the Goldfish, they are all larger, so there wasn't any compatibility problems, and it just swims in formation behind the Goldfish, and seems to be enjoying his new home.

The biggest test has been this last week with 3 very hot days & nights in succession. The ambient temperature got to 43C, and the water temperature reached 27.9c, it didn't seem to phase the fish, maybe the Goldfish have a calming effect on it? This fish seems to be bulletproof, and is starting to grow at a very fast rate. If I can get it through the next few weeks I'll finish up with a nice size fish in a few months time.

Strange Winter in my neck of the woods. We had some good wet snow. My weather station measured 20 mm of water. It was so warm the last 2 weeks that I turned on the pump on the outdoor system. Yesterday we had 15C and a muddy mess outside. 1028 mb, this morning 996 mb and I am waiting for the snow, maybe 40 cm till tomorrow. Than it will get fresh again, could get down to -30 C and winds up to 50 kmh.
By weekend back to 10 C plus. Have to switch the pump of and vacuum the pipes, outdoor system, today.
We had 4 of those polar systems since November. First the snow coming from the South and than the polar bomb.
You can actually see it coming. The sky in the north has a deep blue colour and than within a few hours the temp drops 20 to 30 C.
Refreshing. :D

The weather pretty strange everywhere, here in OZ we've had everything from drought to floods. I don't know how you Guys handle snow as well as you do, it's too cold for me.

Gnoibs, that all sounds insane. Such huge variations in temperature must wreak havoc.
Joblow, don't forget the fires, smoke and red mud rain. My outdoor systems water is still red 3 weeks after it rained mud. So fine, it hasn't settled out.
18C in Antarctica yesterday.Yep...World weather seems to be crazy!

Yes, it wrecks havoc. The polar bomb lasted 3 days. Thursday afternoon, when I went feeding live stock it was -4C, with a mild northern breeze, than while feeding the wind turned South and when I was back in the house it was +1C. Yesterday 14C. This afternoon it could rain and snow. Rather wild stuff.
Turned on the outdoor system again. :D

Nhibbo,

That red mud rain is pretty tough stuff, we've had some very heavy rain since, and it's still on the driveway, plants, trees. It doesn't look like washing off real soon, it won't hose off, I've now given up trying to remove it.


Gnoib,

Those sub zero temps must make it hard, I'm glad we don't have them here. My arthritis is bad enough with our low temps.
