    I think it would be really cool to have tiger in the aqua-scape pond. it would be interesting to see how he interacts with infinite prey and far less competition, compared the the 5 acre pond bass who have potentially less food and more competition.

  2. Temp Hill says:

    Something to note, the owl at 24:10 was a barred owl. But the owls you usually see on the pond are great horned owls. Pretty neat.

  3. tjs114 says:

    Freshwater prawns don’t require brackish water, heck; we have freshwater prawns in the concrete irrigation canals in central California and prawns are often cultivated in the rice paddies in central and northern California.

    Those mosquito fish were likely decimating any freshly hatched prawn larva. If you want the prawns to breed successfully, they’ll need cover of some sort for the larva to hide in.

    • That Guy says:

      Use to make PVC frames with 1/4 in mesh spaced about 2 or 3 inches part for cover for the fry. This was at a deer lease and we’d feed the prawns the scraps from what ever game was taken. Scoop a few out for use in the bass pond. Worked like gang busters. Minnow traps to keep the mosquito fish at bay.

    • Joe Sullivan says:

      Most likely a lot will die off because it’s not brackish water but it shouldn’t make a huge difference though I doubt any will survive the bass

    • Aiken says:

      I agree, mosquito fish are noxious, should have gone with Melanotaenia fluviatilis or M. duboulayi imo

    • Aiken says:

      If you have a lot of tilapia deaths your ammonia levels with get dangerous for the other fish

    • Tyler Davis says:

      @Aiken he didn’t put the mosquito fish, eggs just get carried from ducks to separate bodies of water.

  4. FellowDuck says:

    The birds you saw are kestrels they just have a thing known as ocelli which give them those false eyes on the back of their heads. The feet have different colors that vary based on location and genetics.

    • Geoff Hirschi says:

      It is not genetics or location that determines foot color. the feet color varies based on DIET and age. Younger birds are not able to build up extra beta carotene which is what makes the feet go from yellow -> orange -> a very reddish shade of orange.

    • Chelsea E says:

      @Geoff HirschiIt also makes sense that different locations will come with different diets, and thus different feet colors.

    • thekaduu says:

      @Geoff Hirschi It is genetics and location… Location -> determines what they eat…. Genetics -> determine how they metabolize beta carotene. 🙂

  5. Wrath The AWD says:

    I love the drone shots of the bass feeding, It is always cool to watch new bits of nature you have never seen before

  6. Justin says:

    You should have an underwater scanner at the dock always active to see what bass swims by.

  7. Thomas B says:

    I always look forward to 5-acre pond updates!

  8. darrellid says:

    Those bass are GROWING! Nice to see. Love the methodical, disciplined approach you’ve taken to this project. It’s become quite the experiment and makes for damned good entertainment.

  9. asdf says:

    Always brightens my day to see another pond video. What a cool project.
