[Killietalk] "Pond" critters
I put out a kiddie pool to get a coating of algae before putting in
the fish (a pair of jordanella for a 4 foot pool). By the time the
algae was making a nice coat and it looked ready for some fish, there
was quite a crop of skeeter larvae. The fish went out yesterday, and
as of right now, they are cowering and all but shivering, and not
looking like they're going to chow down on the skeeters.
So: how completely do I need to empty the pool, and how long would
it need to dry out, to be pretty sure I'd killed all the skeeters,
before refilling and starting over with the fish? I don't want to
bleach it out and kill the algae I"m trying to cultivate.
