I usually am not a fan of the hot summer months but this year I am very excited after I read Snipe's article on tubbin'. Hopefully there are some people on here that have experience with this and could help me get everything straightened out.
I am planning on having several tubs, mostly with one species per tub. The fish I am planning on using are celestial pearl danio, cherry shrimp, a nice fancy guppy, marbled crayfish, and another colorful crayfish if I can find some pairs. I imagine I can keep the live bearing guppies in with one of the crayfish but would any other of those fish breed well with crayfish?
If I had a tub of only shrimp (or crayfish), would the bugs become a problem because there are no fish eating them?
What's the smallest the tub can be?
Does the tub have to be thick plastic or could it be a thin rubber maid? What if I reinforced it with a few layers of duct tape?
Do local plant shops or out door nurseries typically sell pond plants or do they need to be mail ordered?
Thanks in advance
