Pond fish stocking recommendations
To produce harvest able fish,  we recommend a balanced pond stocking as
suggested by the N.C. Extension Service. We suggest you get a PH reading of
above 6.0 and you get your preditors "on grade".
For existing ponds we try and save cost by providing specific  pond fish that will  
most benefit your pond. Most of the time we gather enough information from
our customers to make a good guess. Your state extension service is a good
source of unbiased information.

Pond P.H.
New pond owners should measure
their pond Ph prior to pond stocking. A
Ph of 5.5-9 will hold fish but closer to 7
or 8 is best for fish growth and
reproduction. You can find test kits
with pool suppliers and pet stores.
