    Default Grow out journal.


    4 Not allowed!
    Ok so this will be the first journal I've ever attempted. I've decided to set up a small grow out operation for angelfish. I figure people buy the smaller ones a lot around here and this will give them chance to see them a prebreeder size or breeder size. These a local breeder by me who sells excellent colored Koi that the pet stores sell rather quickly. Not in this to make a buck just like messing with my fish.

    This is the 20H, originally this was a hospital/quarantine tank but this pair really dig each other and I'll think they will spawn together. Filtration is a penguin 200 and a sponge filter. The male is a gold marble and the female is a gold veil. If they do spawn and turn out to be great parent raisers of their fry then I'll have some problems as to I'll want to raise the babies. So we will see what happens.

    This is my 29G, this whole tank was given to me with the exception of the sand and I had the stand, so I'm into it 15 dollars. Filtration is one penguin 350 and I'm using a bubble want since the angels seem to like it. It's currently housing 6 silvers and 6 marbles that are dime size.

    This is the 55G and it's housing 16 Koi. Two penguin 350s are the filtration and I bought this tank at the dollar per gallon sale. I also have a bubble wand in it as well.

    Here's them all together, I keep all the tanks at 80 degrees and have been doing every other day water changes. I feed twice a day one feeding is brine shrimp the other is flake. So as you see it with the wood for the stand and everything I'm into this for about 200 for everything not including the price of the fish. But I got one heck of a deal on the angels. The parents of the Koi are about 80% orange colored. Any comment or suggestions/ideas are welcomed

    Very nice set up, Luke. I'm subscribed.

    I'd love to have that many angels around. I had one breeding I tried to raise and out of about 30 fry that got to free swimming stage, about 5 made it to a size my LFS took. I know you're not really trying to breed but if that pair you have isolated do breed, that would be fun.

    Do you have a sink down there, too?

    Catastrophe averted. Checked on my grow out tanks and the 29g was at 74 degrees. The heater took a dump. So I'm not messing around now went and got a new one.

    Yeah that's the last thing I needed was to lose all the fish when I'm trying to get started.
