NFC: Re: LIVE FOOD
Barring anything like pesticide, rain flood, or anything of the sort, it
seems like a fine idea to me. . . . All you've done is make a mini-pond.
Just beware the Arkansas sun... Unlike a pond, which can be shaded and is
only hit at the top, you've got a glass tank that can be hit from all sides
by the sun, and -- worse yet -- you might just wind up with the infamous
magnifying glass effect.
