      Is that a Stripe Bass your holding? The Pilot I work with is a Striper Guide on a lake in Kentucky.

      Yes it is. We fish in the waters off Rhode Island, but the striper population of bigger fish has been steadily decreasing.

      Thanks Delbert. I did set up 4 1000gal stock tanks with filters a couple of weeks ago. added som feeder gold fish to get the bio filters going. Is there any bacterial additive I should toss in to help the filter cycle?

      Considering all the time you have 'til the water gets good and warm, I agree with Delbert that you probably don't need bio-zyme or the like. But you might put a couple of your 10"-14"mutts in each tub to give the tubs/filters some biological mass to get started with. They might not even notice the feeder goldfish. Your ponds look good all full.

      Thanks Matt. Good advise on the mutts but I am not at home to do that for the next three weeks. Catching the Mutts is another problem and would need to salt bath them if I did. These tanks are for holding my breeders until I can get something else prepaired. Probably only put two fish in each tank. Do you think two large koi will overload the filter before it has time to cycle up?

      Would adding water from the Mutt pond Help?

      Great-looking fish, Mike.
      Weather's getting good and fishy, now.
      The good times are about to begin.

      My broodstock is finally home. They are currently resting in the holding tanks to recover from the stress of transport but looking healthy and in good shape. here is a video of unpacking the female Kohaku.
      https://youtu.be/kFSYtsZWqp4. You can see the blood vessels in her tail from the stress. Below is a photo a few hours later and all is well.
