Ok so can't eat all the other fish and must be unlikely to harm swimmers:Wow thanks guys for all the input and advice!
We regularly swim in it, so are aligator/longnose/musk safe?
I would love to grow a big "fossil" fish like the gar, paddlefish or sturgeon.
I'm not sure how cold it is at the bottom, but it's freezing compared to the surface or the shallower you go. The spring is the reason for this I guess.
Also, today is when the pump for the aeration system comes! So after it's setup we'll have to see how the pond changes.
I'm hesitant to restock with flatheads because they ate everything and didn't allow the bass/other fish to grow (which is fine because they got to be pretty big). But now I would like to grow a a huge unique/fossil fish. Especially if it's a less common or becoming endangered.
And again, I don't have a lot of money to spend because I just spent it all basically on the aeration system Lol.
Thanks again guys! What do you all suggest?
