    Gamefish For Lakes & Ponds

    Purchase beneficial gamefish whether it be for sport, aquaponics, or to complete your natural biotope, you've just found a wonderful farm to accommodate your fish stocking needs! We offer quantities as little as 25 fish with some species. We are a wholesale fish farm, so we do not offer onesy/twosey quantities on fish types like these gamefish. You can trust our family's 27 years of professional & educated fish farming experience in this industry, that our quality is never compromised! Our fish are healthy, generous & shipped by our own family right to your front door. Anyone conducting activities of stocking fish in their own pond or lake within their state is responsible themselves to follow all regulations pertaining to their State Dept of Fish & Game regulations governing private stocking of aquatic plants & animals. Please refer to your State for specific regulations regarding your regulations & laws. AAG Nurseries, Inc. assumes no liability for the pond or lake owner. Shipping sizes and stocking: We do not ship large mature fish. It just doesn't work, and it's a costly gamble not worth doing. Dorsal fins grow, they are sharp and fish can become more skittish as these fish mature, and this can tear or pierce bags easily, resulting in complete losses of shipments. Trust us, these fish will grow quickly, so there is no need for you to be in a rush to buy large animals. The smaller sizes ship much better with fewer losses! Stocking slowly is also recommended. For example, if your pond is new, once we have the chemistry down with the correct bacteria and other additives, you may first want to stock with Mosquitofish, Snails, and perhaps smaller gamefish such as shellcrackers, bluegill, or crappie depending on your zone. Then once your fish have stabilized and found their refuge or territories and perhaps gained some size, then, we would suggest stocking Green Sunfish, Bass species, and Catfish, etc. This method will help you greatly in the long term! The following is our recommended stocking rates for game fish. This list may differ depending on your location, condition, & environment of your pond. These numbers take into account fish that could be lost in the pond by predators within time. The size, growth, & health of fish are determined by factors such as existing fish, mode of transport to the pond, the amount the pond owner wants to invest in fish, water quality, and feeding schedules. If the pond has no existing fish it is advisable to stock larger numbers of smaller fish initially. This will allow the pond owner to incur a lower price per fish. If small numbers are stocked, these fish may grow to a large size, which the pond owner will have to stock larger fish in subsequent years to avoid predation from the initial fish stocked. HELPFUL STOCKING SUGGESTIONS: One acre pond with supplemental feeding. Largemouth Bass = 200 Channel/Mud Catfish = 700 Small Gamefish (Bluegill, Sunfish, etc.) = 500 Koi/Carp = 500 Mosquito Fish = 2000 Fathead Minnows = 1000 One acre pond without supplemental feeding. Largemouth Bass = 200 Channel/Mud Catfish = 400 Small Gamefish (Bluegill, Sunfish, etc.) = 500 Fathead Minnows = 1000 Koi/ Carp = 400 Mosquito Fish = 2000 Fathead Minnows = 1000 One acre pond with Channel Catfish ONLY (alone). Channel Catfish 1000 Note: These stocking ratios are our advisable recommendations based on our years of experience. Other fish farms or literature could vary depending on their circumstances. If you require additional help or water consulting, you may contact our resident expert Peter @ pete@azgardens.com or 520-971-1357 Protect our Ecosystems & Know your Aquatic Animal Responsibilities It is important to make sure living things in your aquarium or  pond are kept away from our oceans and natural waterways. Be responsible. Never dump fish, plants or snails into or near waterways, lakes, canals, washes, stormwater drains or the ocean. Donate unwanted fish to friends, other hobbyists, schools, your petshop, or dispose of them humanely by putting them to sleep in an ice slurry and then freezing them. Use care when cleaning tanks or ponds. Dump wastewater or excess unwanted plants into your garden, compost or trash. Design ponds so that plants, snails, fish or eggs can’t escape during heavy rains, and screen all overflow areas. Consider keeping species native to your local area. Most fish, snails, and plants you keep will not typically be native to your local area. If released, they are difficult to eliminate and pose a serious threat to fragile ecosystems and important industries. So don't dump that fish incorrectly! Setting fish free may mean they die from starvation or disease, however, fish that do survive and breed will compete with local native species for food and space. They may also spread disease and parasites, and damage natural habitats.

  • Mosquito Control

    Mosquito Control (2)

    YOU CAN CONTROL MOSQUITO REPOPULATION NATURALLY! THE GREEN WAY TO STAY ON TOP OF MOSQUITO OUTBREAKS! NATURAL, BIOLOGICAL MOSQUITO CONTROL THROUGH USE OF MOSQUITO FISH. WORLD'S BEST MOSQUITO EATING FISH!

    Eats Mosquitoes, Mosquito Larvae, among other flying Insects and their Larvae Size: typically about 1/2" but females can get up to about 2"+ Water Requirements pH: versatile 5.5 - 8.5 Water Temp: 30 - 105F + Sexing: Males are always smaller than the female. The female is always larger than the male and since this is not an egg layer fish, but rather a "live-bearing" animal, the female may have what appears to be a balloon belly from time to time just before birthing frye (baby fish). p> Biological Mosquito Control info Biological mosquito control methods are one of the mainstays in protecting the public from mosquitoes and the transmission of mosquito-borne diseases. Mosquito biological control of Gambusia affinis is one of the best and most natural solutions available without the use of harmful chemicals. Mosquito fish are a small live-bearing minnow closely related to the common guppy. Used in mosquito control in the USA since 1915, these fish are vivacious consumers of mosquito larvae and pupae and can survive in varying water conditions from moderately high levels of Salt, Algae, Pollutants & Temperature Ranges from nearly freezing to above 100 degrees. These fish are compatible with most ornamental pond fish such as Koi, Goldfish and Carp which make them an excellent addition to any pond. Because mosquito fish are surface feeders, they are extremely efficient mosquito predators. Mosquito fish have been said to consume upwards of 80-100 mosquito larvae per day, and are capable of quickly populating a water source if conditions are favorable. The fish are placed in a variety of permanent and semi-permanent fresh water habitats, including: unused swimming pools, animal watering troughs, rice fields, golf course ponds, wetlands, natural creeks, reservoirs, & drainage channels. Mosquito fish are fantastic in shallow areas where larger fish cannot penetrate to eat the larvae.   Protect our Ecosystems & Know your Aquatic Animal Responsibilities It is important to make sure living things in your aquarium or  pond are kept away from our oceans and natural waterways.

  • Pond Aeration & Diffusers

    Pond Aeration & Diffusers (10)

    IN A NUTSHELL...A POND WITH AERATION IS ALWAYS BETTER! For years aeration was thought of as something you only needed if you had high fish loads in a pond. Through years of working closely with pond owners it has been proven that aeration does far more than just keep fish alive. In fact, we consider aeration to be the single most important step in maintaining a healthy pond. Without oxygen nothing will decompose. All the fish waste, dead algae/plant material, leaves, etc. that fall to the pond bottom will only continue to build up unless there is good oxygen levels to help it decompose. Shallow ponds where the sunlight reaches the bottom and wind action helps stir the water can have adequate oxygen to the bottom in some cases but deeper ponds will seldom have good oxygen all the way to the bottom. A bottom mounted air diffuser can make a huge difference in a ponds health by bringing oxygen and circulation down where its needed the most - along the pond’s bottom. A LITTLE DEEPER READING.... You know that your pond needs oxygen in the water so organisms can live of course, but you may not know that a still pond is only able to exchange gases at the water surface. A still pond will also only support a very small fish population. Any pond not only needs to absorb oxygen from the air but it also needs to release carbon dioxide and other gases as well. Hydrogen sulfide is a gas that is produced by anaerobic (without oxygen) bacteria, breaking down organic matter in the bottom of the pond. The pond bottom has less oxygen then the upper layers of the pond, especially if you have stone or gravel in the bottom of your pond. Anaerobic bacteria work in the absence of oxygen and cause a septic condition in the bottom of the pond. When you spray water through a fountain, a water pump or when your water is moving through a stream or over a waterfall you are increasing this surface that is exposed to the atmosphere many times. Harmful gasses are released to the atmosphere and oxygen absorbed very easily. You definitely want to circulate the water in the deepest part of the pond in order to help with the break down of organic compounds, therefore providing better water quality! During warm weather, draw water from the bottom of the pond to expose it to the atmosphere. When you expose the bottom of the pond to oxygen rich water you will have aerobic (uses oxygen) bacteria breaking down the organics. This will reduce foul odors in the pond, which are caused by anaerobic bacteria action. Oxygen is absorbed only through the surface of water, and so the next issue we run into is having too many plants in a pond. If the entire surface is covered with water lilies or other surface plants, very little gas exchange can take place unless there is a large fountain or waterfall. You may think that adding more underwater plants will add oxygen to the water? While underwater plants will help add oxygen to the pond during the daylight it will use up the available oxygen at night the same as other life in the pond. It is possible to have too much hornwort, anacharis or other underwater plants in a pond. Underwater plants, such as anacharis, are important to the pond but their function is to use up nutrients to starve out the algae. The hotter the water the less oxygen it can hold. So, cold water holds much more oxygen. If your fish spend a lot of time at the surface sometimes gulping air or you have noxious odors coming from your pond then you most likely do not have enough circulation. You may want to consider adding an aeration pump that will greatly increase the gas exchange with the water! In hot weather a water pump failure can lead to an expensive fish kill very quickly, but by having a 2nd pump running or an aeration pump you greatly decrease the chance of having a major loss of fish. Even if you don't keep it in operation, having an aerator as a backup in case your main pump fails can save your fish and allot of deaths. If your water pump fails in hot weather you may only have a few hours if your pond is heavily stocked with fish. The use of an aerator is critical in the balance and harmony of a happy pond. Along with the proper amount of microbial bacteria, an aerator will eliminate messy algae blooms quickly.

    You may notice throughout this site that our company doesn't sell allot of chemicals, supplements, medications, or fertilizers. This is our attempt at doing things as naturally as possible and work with Mother Nature. not fight her! She always knows best, but we as men, although our intentions may be good, usually end up messing her up. All Aquarium or Pond additives need to be used with care. Here's a couple tips that we practice ourselves that may also help you build your aquarium or pond in a better way. Try adding fertilizers at water changes only. Never add fertilizers to your tank because you think your plants look bad!Naturally planted tanks should be well-balanced. To get this balance you must have the right amount of fish, snails, plants, light, filtration, etc. These things all work together to create HARMONY, not imbalance. Okay, so maybe you have one brand of liquid fertilizer that's your favorite? That's fine, most of us do, but down the road your plants may not look as sweet as they used to. Of course there are many factors why plants wither away. Here’s a simple tip that may actually give your plants a boost. Try switching your fertilizer brands from time to time, and watch how your plants respond. Alternate between a couple brands. Plants are living organisms, they need changes in their diet, just like we do. When you switch back to your favorite fertilizer, it may work better, or like you remembered it

Tropical lilies can be distinguished at a glance from hardy water lilies in that the leaves are serrated or jagged. Tropical lilies come in either day blooming and night blooming varieties. The day-blooming varieties open several hours after sunrise and stay open until several hours before sunset. Some varieties of tropical water lilies are viviparous (reproduction or growing plantlets on their leaves) which indicates they are more cold tolerant and will continue to bloom through fall in colder climates. The night- blooming varieties will open an hour or two before sunset and remain open as late as noon even on a cloudy day.  For best performance plant tropical water lilies in at least a 2 gallon or larger plant container with a generous amount of heavy garden soil. Even the heaviest of clay soils will work fine w the addition of a little sand (20%)and fertilizer. Fertilize monthly to reach maximum blooming potential!  Depth should be maintained between 6" and 18" when first transplanted, and then once established they can be grown from 12" to 30" depending on the variety. Water temperatures should be at least 60 degrees before planting tropical water lilies in your water garden.
