This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Animal Care.

In this Badge Bit you will be adding an aeration strategy to a trout pond.

Here are some articles on it:
 - Aeration in Aquaculture
 - Dissolved Oxygen Water Properties
 - Oxygenate a Pond without Electricity
 - Aeration Methods
 - Winter Aeration Why and How
 - Water Flowforms

Here are some related threads:
 - Advice on Natural Fish Pond
 - Building a pond, tips on aeration
 - Sepp Holzer on Ponds and Wind
 - Flowforms, ever use them?
 - Mollison on Trompes

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
 - you must add an aeration strategy to a trout pond

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must:
 - describe roughly what the aeration method you will be adding is and how it works
 - post a picture of of the trout pond before the aeration strategy is added
 - post a picture of the trout pond after the aeration strategy is added
