Re: Killies in ponds
What were you breeding in your puddle? I pulled out about 100 Aphy australe
from a 1m wide x 3 long x1/2m deep plastic tub. I planted vallisneria, water
poppy, cabomba, hornwort, water hyacinth and Amazon frogbit in the tub.
Couldn't see the fish for the plants and pulled plants out of the tub on a
biweekly basis.I put the plants in other tubs, aquariums whatever and after
another 2 weeks I sold/traded them off to the LFS's in my area. I think a
few shops may have got a dividend in their plant tanks.
