I would use an aquarium with a sponge filter, you can inoculate it with bacteria from your current pond filter. You may want to use a dose of methylene blue to keep fungus to a minimum but I have had success without it just a fewer hatch out. the key is to keep the water clean after hatching so be ready for some frequent water changes.

hi :-)
thank you for replying,they mainly appear to have gone white inside,
which i have always believed meant that they are no good.:-(
so,i have not harvested anymore,i shall wait until there is fry
in the pond,and decide if i want to have a couple indoors.
i was really looking forward to the thrill of hatching...oh well.

Sorry to hear that, I bet you will be prepared for the next batch though, its nice to be able to cherry pick the nice ones and keep them inside for a while.

HURRAY for you! Baby fish fry, exciting! Makes you wish you had a macro lens for a camera doesn't it.
