I'm aware that it's a bit too small and my pump's not that strong. But I haven't been encountering any water parameter problems. Most probably due to the plants. I've noticed that the vine's roots have grown real long and tangled. It provides a perfect hiding place for the livebearer fry.
I hope you enjoy my humble set-up. Comments are greatly appreciated! :redyay::blueyay::greenyay:
I love it! Nice fish. What a sweet pond you have. I really like the tropical feel (love the tropics!) it gives me and your space looks so tranquil. You've done a great job. :-D
Thanks! Well, I am in the tropics so... XD
Glad to know you loved it! I could say our garden is a tranquil space in the midst of a concrete jungle. I live smack in the middle of the city. The high-rise buildings only are only walking distance away.
In the middle of the city?? You'd never know it by viewing your garden area and pond. What a great retreat from the madness of a city. Fantastic!
Very nice! I love all the plants around the pond! Your goldfish look so beautiful and healthy.
That looks amazing. You did a great job!
Your goldfish are nice and plump.:love:
Yeah. I'm surprised how they've grown. Diet is Hikari Oranda and Wheatgerm daily, veggies weekly, and frozen bloodworms every month. Feeding schedule is 2 to 3 times a day.
