It's been a long time but I just need a place to review this year's fish care and make plans for next year.
The 270 gal pond is not going up again next year.
The 600 gal pond now houses all my fish currently.
The 8 gal tank has three little fry from the draining of the 270. Have yet to be prazi'd or salted but as soon as I find the products I will get them started.
The 60 gal is empty and will remain empty in case the three fry outgrow the 8 gal in the winter months.
I have 25 plus fish as
QT: Uncycled filter and air stone in a 10-15 gal QT
Weigh-in: 9 grams
May 15 2013
Prazi day 1 and salt at 0.1%
Notes: readily accepts food, zooms around really fast (worried about flashing until confirmed zooming in outside fish as well, due to impending weekend storm)
May 16 2013
Prazi day 2 and salt at 0.2%
Repashy increased to BID
Notes: zooming slowed down, still ravenous appetite
May 17 2013
Prazi day 3 and salt at 0.3%

I mainly used this blog for QT but I think I'm going to start using it for thoughts now.
Living in Canada puts me at a serious disadvantage when it comes to purchasing fish. The weather and rural distance does not allow me an opportunistic approach for receiving fish. The weather is too brutal, no matter how many precautions are taken, to ensure a fish would be received with quality of health. The fish that I have raised that were bred here are quite hearty and I do believe that bree
Pre-history: This tank had a betta and three tetras. Was planted with moss from Haley and Anubias. I moved the tank, lost the betta and one tetra. Two tetras lived undisturbed until June when one fry went in named Lulu. It was a hot summer and the cats drank out of the tank so everyday I filled up 10-25% of the water. The params were normal even though the plant and algae were building up. Those three fish went into the pond.
Current Occupants: 3 little fry, Clarabelle, Isabelle, and Sweetiebe
Weight: 17 grams
Prazi Round 1 - day 1
Salt at 0.1% - this will increase to 0.3% for 14 days.
Notes: Repashy will be offered on a BID/TID basis. I'm aiming for weight maintenance not growth.
She has very cute little paper fan fins.
Two fry. One has reddened lower fins the other i can't see any. One has already decoloured to calico and the other is still wild. No names yet
Currently in a 10 gal with prazi and 0.1% salt.
Day 1 round 1 prazi
Week 1 day 1 salt 0.1%
June 15 2013
Prazi round 1 day 1 - salt at 0.1%
Notes: Repashy TID. Fish has quite red fin joints and red streaks in picture but after a few hours in QT, this has cleared up. I believe it was weight and transfer stress.
