In the first tank, there are community tropical fish. Thousands of them! The ponds are full of plants from the fishes natural habitat.

There were guppies, platys, corys, plecos, apple snails the size of my hand and I don't know what else. There were thousands of fry swimming about and it was amazing to look down and see them in an environment much closer to that which they come from.

The second pond had South American Cichlids. As you can probably imagine - that was me. I wasn't really interested in going any further round the gardens and eventually had to be dragged away by some rather bored mates

Anyway, I'm going to go back in a few weeks and I will take loads of pictures of the two ponds and post them here. :)
sounds like you had a great time! :D

i can't wait to see the pictures!!:D
thanks guys for letting me be a mod! evan though it was a short while, i am still very grate full. :)
