Ok, Momma Said, "No More Tanks". So...........

Momma said, "no more tanks". :( So I got to thinkin'. Why not set up a pond? Well, maybe not a eye popping landscape creation. (I don't have the ambition or the time.) But a kiddie wading pool. I would put aquatic plants and maybe a few mollies, platys, and swords along with putting a few of my "bread and butter" Malawian cichlids. Do you think that she'll fire me?

Rememember, she said no more tanks. I'll tear it down at the beginning of the cool season. Bring in whatever fish there are, I'm sure I'll have a few tanks empty. Put the plants inside also. The wading pool I'm thinking of is about 24" deep and about 8' wide and can be rolled up and stored until the following spring. I'm doing this more to propogate plants than to raise fish. I hope she understands and doesn't fire me. She's a pretty good cook. lol
I already have most of what I need, pumps, filters, ect. All I need is the kiddie pool. I even have the fish and most of the plants. Anything I can't use or do not want at tear down time will go to my lfs's.
Do you think she'll really get the Donald Trump thing going?

With 340 tanks, I understood what she meant. But you answered your question already. A kiddie wading pool isn't bad. I always wanted to use mine for my fish but my sisters refuse because they might as well use it anytime this summer.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Why not one of the cattle watering troughs? They are up to 8' across and 2-3 feet deep. Would be a great place to grow a ton of plants and you wouldn't have to tear it down every time. Just empty it and role up against the side of the house.
