Tub Pond-Fish Ideas?
I plan on making a tub pond. It will be between 60-100 gallons. I will probably put a comet goldfish, a bunch of fathead minnows, and some ghost shrimp. I plan to heavily plant it. Does anyone have any other animal suggestions?

Wowo that sounds good.. Guessing outside.... What filter will you use or are you not using one..

Well, the plants will give airation, and I will have to fill it daily because of evaporation, which will make oxygen. I have a way to make a makeshift filter.

No outdoors, and I forgot to say that I will add native tad-poles.

I could, but I plan to just use a gravel vacuum for cleaning.
