A week ago I caught 25 grass carp fingerlings. Today there are only 6 surviving, tomorrow there will probably be none! The water is oxygenated. They have food(algae), they are dying. I need help urgently!:help:

Grass carp are not going to survive in a tank you need a pond. and a nice size pond at that. First and foremost if they were just dropped into a tank or pond without cycling I would say the chances of the survival are very very slim. Not that you cant possibly pull it off but the conditions that they need have to be met first and a nice size cycled pond would really do the trick.

they need more than algae...they need plant matter..try spinach or kale and other leafy greens..
k c is right ; if the tank wasn't cycled they are not likely to survive..
also ; what do you plan on doing with them once they get too big for a tank ? you cannot release them back into the wild...it is illegal..possibly a felony..
