Re: Killies and light
I recently had a about a 1000 gal pond put in my backyard, and I thought some
of you might find it interesting, that my A australe were rarely seen on
cloudy days, or in the evening, or at night with lights on - BUT - on the
bright, no clouds, direct sunlight days, there they were, taking leisurely
swims all around the pool, usually one male and two females, stopping to
deposit an egg or two at regular intervals. NEVER saw them except in the
bright, sunlit days. Who says they don't like light?
