One last question, I just saw your post about november spawns you said you weren't going to feed them mosquito larva which I'm assuming is because they will have all died out because of the cold weather(if it actually ever comes. It hit 90 today at my house). But how long into the fall do you typically keep getting mosquito larva?
It's worth it. It almost runs itself...they eat bugs and evaportation and rain do your water changes (I had a full kiddy pool drain to an inch within days and then refill back up when we had a good storm).
