|Fishkeeping is one of my hobbies. I have a Half Barrel Pond that I keep goldfish in. My old goldfish were eaten by a predator. I have new goldfish on order.
Last week I moved a few Amazon Sword Plants (Echinodorus amazonicus) and an Ozelot Sword (Echinodorus ozelot) with a little baby beside it from my Betta container to the pond.
There's still a Fathead Minnow (Pimephales promelas) hiding down there. He comes out to graze for something in the algae occasionally. Next week I have three Calico Ryukin coming to live in the pond. I understand they are still under 2" (5cm) long
Here's the pics.
First, an overview pic:
Here you can see a Blue Pickerel Rush (Pontederia chordata) making a new leaf, they come up from the middle wrapped around an old leaf stem.
Here's a new leaf on the Orange Peel plant (Houttuynia cordata), it's curled pointy thing to the right of the opened leaf.
And a parting shot of the sword pot on the bottom, new to the pond this week.
The video is at youtube:
