Zach, we got the shrimp from

Craig Upstrom, President
Aquaculture of Texas, Inc., Since 1986
4141 E. IH-20 Serv. Rd. N.
Weatherford, Texas 76087
817-594-4872
upstrom5@airmail.net

and they send the shrimp all over the country if you're interested.

 

I have sent several personal messages to Mag Rick, but he doesn't answer. Hope he's ok.

The first time we put the pond near the bluegill pond, and there is no electricity. So, we had to circulate the water with a gas pump and aerator. The aerator broke one weekend and buy the time we could replace it, many of the shrimp had died. Most of the others were eaten by turtles, snakes, herons, and raccoons which frequent the pond down there. Also, last year was a drought here in TX, and we had to pump water from the creek, which added bluegill and minnows to the shrimp pond.

Sharon you say that you are trying freshwater shrimp farming again? What happened the first time?

Comment by Zach Pierce on May 17, 2012 at 8:58pm
Looks like some fun there have you tried this before.

Where we're you able to source the shrimp?

Has anyone heard from Magnolia Rick?

We decided to try freshwater shrimp farming again, first thing, dig a ditch, add liner and substrate, add culverts, set up pump for a fountain to add water, and hopefully, the end result:

Have to show off our new toy for the pond

It's a lot of fun paddling around, and I now don't catch the hook on everything in the pond.

This is the best fish I caught today.  It is so pretty, I put it back in the pond. 7.5"

 

Comment by 10.5" RES Sharon on April 14, 2012 at 6:53pm

My catch today. Missing are one shiner and a small GSF I tried to use as bass bait. No luck with that yet. Largest was 7.5"
