Oh, and I am fertalizing the pond with chicken and rabbit manure.
According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife you can increase fish production up to 400%
They of course recommend chemical fertilizers.
It works the same as your garden, if you can build up the microbial life and algae, that supercharges the food chain.
I am so excited to finally be able to do all this.
Oh, I need to set up those big above ground tanks that I am going to make out of the siding from an above ground swimming pool I got free and line it with the old heavy liner from our 20'x40' in-ground pool.
Everything is coming together. I can run the water from out heat-exchanger at the brewery into the tanks first to heat them up, during the winter. Man, so many ideas... I am like a kid
