Ouch! Sorry to here that Steve, and that sounds like such an interesting crossing. I had forgotten to list equipment failures. We've had power failures at various times of year and filters that freeze up in cold weather and at least one pump failure. But fortunately we have caught these situations early enough to avoid fish losses from them. We did have fry hit hard by tobi in 2013, illness in 2014, and deformities in 2017. And recall Wombat losing a bunch of fry to a major heat wave. So many ways this can go wrong, but we just keep trying and appreciate the successes.
