How to take care of Brown Trout

Check pHimg_2813Check the Nitratesimg_2811Check the ammoniaimg_2810

Today our readings were all good: pH=7.1, Nitrates=0 ppm, Amonnia=0 ppm. We did not change the water because the chemistry today was perfect for our small Brown Trout.

img_2822We noticed the eggs that  need to be removed. we also noticed the eggs sacks on the trout’s stomach; this is what they feed on. We had to take about 12 egg cases out of the fish basket (see photo above) where the small fish or alevin  are growing.

We also noticed that some were dead egg shells (see photo above).

img_2809We have to take these out or the egg cases will rot and decay and they will get bacteria in the water.

img_2808Our questions:

How long can  trout  live and grow? And by these pictures you can see that the trout are doing well.

If you have any suggestions for us please leave a comment on our blog. Thank-you!
