Well my pond is one of those preformed ponds, not a tub, and so it is buried in the ground. I was planning on putting my platies in but I really don't want to lose them so I'm a little hesitant to put them in, but if I get any fish specifically for it I wouldn't have any place to put them, especially goldfish(they couldn't stay in there since last winter the water in it freezed completely solid all the way to the bottom) The earthworms actually only went in there after I cleaned it out at the beginning of spring, I haven't noticed any new ones, maybe they wised up, still plenty of beetles though but I can just skim those out everyday with a net I guess. Also, I have a bunch of baby java ferns in my aquarium, think they'd grow well if I tied them up to a bunch of rocks and stuck them out there? I just hope that the lily covering the water more now will keep down on the algae some, I cleaned it out again today and it's not clear to the bottom again but before I couldn't even see the stems of the lily leaves past an inch or so below the water.
