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.
Forgive me for lack of experience with ponds, but isn't there some kind of biological method of control with inverts such as snails? eg. other fish that would add snails as part of their main diet?
