pond lilly in tanks
Hello all, I'm new here but just wanted to comment about the pond lillies in the aquariums. I set up a small water feature last summer in my back yard with water lillies in it. When fall came I didn't wany my lillies to die so I housed them in and old aquarium the kids had when they were young. Shortly I had noticed little floating creepy things in the tank so I bought a few little feeder fish and put in there. Come Christmas my little neighbor boy wanted some ' goldfish' from Santa, and the little creepy things were gone so I donated them to his Mom. He's to young to realize they aren't goldfish. My lillies however were saved but I missed the fish. So I bought a 38 gallon tank, put the lillies in it and then had to buy some fishes...... mollies and platys. My lillies are now nearly covering the top of the tank, my fishes are mass producing and the fry hid in the lillies and have evidently ALL survived living with the parents!!!! Now I've added more plants more fish and more aquariums!!! All due to trying to save 2 lilly plants.......... it would have been much cheaper to buy 2 more lilly plants for the water feature this summer but not near as much fun!!! I"M HOPELESSLY HOOKED!!!! and loving it!!
