You need to allow water to enter into the pond. Or better still pump out the water and allow fresh water to enter into your pond.

You've done well. From the above formular, you've made a local feed weighing 117KG
For a starter, u need to increase FM to boast their growth.
Please, don't make use of maize for a starter because it will take a while before it will digest in their system thereby it is always advisable to make use of flour or biscuit. When ur fish r now matured, u can then introduce maize to make them have weight.
For a starter, u can make use of dis formular;
FM 30, TS 25, GNC 25, Flour 10, Indomie or Biscuit 10, VitC 100grams, Salt 1KG, Premix 1

u cannot effectively do it,because d strains that will be left will grow/germinate back(they are life),either u flush out d present water as adviced,try to shield d pond from sun,which is almost impossible for large ponds,hence adhere to d former & do a bit of letting fresh water into yr ponds in future

do good water mgt,keep them in a spacious container, from leftover rice, beans, smashed yam etc, they will eat all, about d salt, pepper,oil on it, dont worry they will eat everything, only change water to enhance o2 supply, mostly they dont feed or feed less in tight environ & if u decide not to feed them, as long as water is clean, they wont die,but shrink & lose weight

You're welcome. You can still make use of your formula since they r a bit matured now. They need little maize now. Let me give u dis bonus formular. It is called formula two: GNc 20 ts 20 flour 16.8 maize 16.6 fm 26.6 dcp 1 premix 1 vitc 100grams salt 1 molasis 10. That's what you should give ur fish at that age.

The kind of pond u make use of will determine when to change water. If it is concrete, it has to be every 3 days but if it is earthen using flow through method, u can leave it till harvest time. However, if u like u can change the water once before harvest(but I don't change mine @ all). Please allow your fish to eat enough floating feeds before u switch to local feeds. My formular one is FM 50, TS 20, GNC 20, biscuit 10, Vit C 200grams, Salt 1, Premix 1, DCP 1, Molasis 10 . My formular one is 100KG and it is 100% protein. You will notice massive change in the growth of ur fish. Of a truth, it is quite richer than coppens or any other floating feeds.
