does any one know anything about sturgeons in ponds?
I looked on the internet and apparantly the min pond size for a sterlet is 1000 g, or is that too small?

thanks, nic

Depends on what species you're talking about.

The shovelnose sturgeon seldom grows over 2 feet. The white sturgeon....on the other hand...gets to 20.

I think sterlets get maybe 4 but I havent confirmed this. According to the book American Aquarium Fishes the shovelnose is one of the smallest ones...and likely best suited to an aquarium.
