  1. Yesterday I purchased 40 3 1/2 inch Rainbow Trout. They had an hour long trip back home at which point I put them in my IBC based 400 gallon system. At this point they all seemed to be alive and happy. The tank has 4 air stones attached to an air pump. In less than 24 hours they were all dead. They died off as the day went on, a couple in the morning, more in the afternoon, and by night they were all dead. Water Parameters: Temp: Around 55-60 degrees (breeder kept them at 50). PH: 6.5 Nitrate: 0 Nitrite: 0 Ammonia: 0 Additional details: The tank did have a good deal of algae in it which they seemed to prefer over the pellet food. I do not have a meter for dissolved Oxygen. Aside from the algae the water is pretty clean, no obvious contaminants other than a bit of clay dust on the bottom of the tank from the clay pellets. I did do a partial water change which seems to not have much of an effect. Conclusions: My best guess is an Oxygen problem. Some of them appeared to be popping up to the surface of the water to gasp for air but not all of them. The under water pumps blast water into the tanks pretty fast. The pump in my tank is pretty over powered and could have had something to do it maybe?
