Swords from Corey

Postby dennysfishroom » Mon Sep 06, 2010 2:45 pm

A couple months ago, Corey gave me several "Nezzie" (we think) swords. There was supposed to be 1 male and the rest females. When I got home, I put them into my pond outside, and saw them infrequently. Today I started trying to get them out for the winter. Not even close when using a net, but then tossed my old minnow trap in there. Within 30 minutes I had caught about 10 fish. Five were the swordtails, but all five are males. What are the odds? I just hope I can get at least one female from that group. We also may have to re-visit the "Nezzie" designation. None have long swords. Surprisingly, I also pulled out one baby goldfish. I wasn't expecting that. I'll have to check the trap again this evening before it gets dark. You guys are going to see some livebearers at our auction. Denny

I think I got virtually all the livebearers out of the pond this afternoon. The minnow trap really worked great. I'm going to try it in the pond I had the mollies in tomorrow to see if I can get those. I did catch the gold ones, but never even saw the black ones once I started stirring things up. I was really worried about my chances of getting the fish out. Denny
