ok,but ive heard of these guys(sturgeon)getting 1400lbs,so i doubt a 1000 gallon pond is big enough.

Yes, alex these fish can grow 7 ft and weigh a very good size, because these fish are fresh water living they can grow a very good size but u will only find a good sized fish as such a sturgeon in a big river with a current running many miles from the sea.

I think the fish is ok enough room I leave enough room for him or her to swim round I leave it plenty of room and depth as sturgeon are bottom feeders but useless swimmers.

I do have a big ish pond at the moment but Hopfully buying a bigger house this year so bigger house means bigger garden and for me that's means ? yep I'm sure u got it.

actually,in the wild,if left alone,can grow up too 20 feet in length. the only reason we dont see them that bigh today,is because overfishing caused them too become endangered,and they are much harder too find in the wild.imo,they arent meant for ponds,there too big.

I do fully understand what your saying but these fish are sold on a
weekly rate, and I believe me we have no rivers for miles so what I buy I belive I give the fish as much naturals and space as the fish would desire in a much natural world, I have many wonderfully fish but I have to take extra care of the basic swim fish but if I feel that 1 or any fish is in any danger by being to large or any water threats I will remove all fish and carry then beat interest of any means,, I don't just have a dug out pond with a air stone, I really love fish and look out for there best interest as I do my own kids health.
But if my sturgeon ever grew to big then I would have to build a bigger pond because releasing a fish as small as 2 inch to 60 inch in a wild river would not survive but for me bigger the better.

But please I fully understand what u are saying

[QUOTE=Dean4;1315946]Excellent wendi u av a real champ there, my kids, the youngest is 8 month boy then 3 year old lad, 6 year old girl then twins at 7 years 1 boy 1 girl.

But has u said it well could be a few weeks to soon to spawn but my goldfish is bursting and thought she might of spawned but when I did my water change yesterday I checked all the males for tubercle but none as yet so would be pointless if female did proceed now.

For the 20% water change it takes round 2-3 hours and use a very good carpet cleaner with a big drum and I also have a very handy drain beside the pond so it's all perfectly in place, then after I always add (please don't argue haha) aqualibrium salt that also keeps away infection and keeps fish stress free and maintains ph level.

You seem to like children as much as you do fish. Are you planning on more kids along with the bigger house and bigger pond?
Don't worry, I won't argue about salt. I also use it with PWC, I agree it helps. It's one of those things that some people swear by and other's will badger you about how bad it is .

I just avoid any threads that involve Aquarium salt. I won't be able to change their minds about it and I feel different about using salt than they do. It's not worth arguing about .
I learned a long time ago to pick my battles. Salt is a personal preference. Where PWC are a necessity, so doing enough of them I will fight for.
It sounds like you love and care well for your fish, so no arguments out of me, I promise.
I'm glad your gold fish haven't spawned yet. Although I've heard that Spring has Sprung in England .
Not so Lucky here in Oregon .

Yeah it's red hot in England it's really nice, I was just a little worried about me goldfish she's really bursting but still no tubercles on males and don't think this weather will last.

Can I ask any 1 what plants are best for a guppie tank, I'm new to guppies just bought a nice tank but looking a little bit bland.
Cheers.

Welcome to AA Dean4!! Im a little jealous over your massive pond. We have a local sturgeon hatchery and release program. A River runs through our town, and each year the kids from all the schools get to go and release a baby sturgeon back into the river. Its awesome. All 3 of my children (13, 12, 10) have gotten to hold a baby sturegon and release it into the river

your gona love it here!

Hey tasha thank u.
I like the sound of this river u have going through your town and full of sturgeon that's really good, I guess these sturgeons grow around 6-7 ft excellent stuff.

I bet all the kids love to handle these fish as mush as sturgeons love humans at such a young age (4-5 inch) and plus they like there pointy nose being tickled such a great fish, would love to live near a fish farm with a nice size river.

It is pretty cool. My son (10) just informed me that he hasnt got to do it yet, its the grade 5's??so next year for him... I know one year a girl in one of my daughters class was letting hers go and along came a seagull and grabed it out of the water, she was horrified, while others thaught it was funny, but I guess thats why its called the circle of life!!
