I've created a small water feature from a largish tub left over from the drought time - this is mainly for the bees as a water source, with a Lebanese Cress and Kangkong put into it in their pots.
It's in a relatively shady spot with some sun during the AM.
If "yes" to the fish...where's the best place to get my hands on some? and how many should I add? and do I need to feed the poor wee things once they're in?
LOL. Nice work Jake.
I have at least four of the little fellas still alive. I suppose eventually the Jade's will get them. Happy to report, the tank went from a mosquito pit to completely insect free in less than a week.
Pebbles added to the bottom to hold down plants kindly given by Scott and Alison.
Scott has loaned me his little fish trap :) Pity I'm heading to Bribie today - could have gone to the dam - maybe next weekend with my grandson.
That's the spirit. Have fun with it.
Equally, Beta (Siamese Fighters) would work well but they can be expensive. Stay away from the males and get a few females (you don't need them to look very pretty and the girls live together quite well - they are also cheaper).
You'll be okay with the day only pump. Most pumps run 24/7 to remove ammonia, nitrite and nitrate. The plants should do that for you. I suspect what you bought was an aerator. That'll do the trick fine but remember you need to clean the air stone every so often.
That's amazing. I kept all of mine in little tanks and never heated a one! Are you sure you're not spoiling those boys?
White cloud we have They seem indestructible got them from Bridgeman downs via gumtree you don't feed them. They just survive on whatever is in the water.
