 I stopped counting Swordtail fry at 100  crazy
of the 21 juvenile swords that I put in there I pulled out 19 fat adults and there ended up being about 30 young Rainbows.
Lets just say there is enough fish to keep me busy for a while  Wink 

I finally got some pics resized .. of the post modernistic industrial pond .
Now I know the water is green .. even with 100 gallon weekly water changes .
 Next year I will fill it with more plants as it is sitting in full sun all day.

The first two shots are of the whole pond.
The 3rd pic is of one of the plants I put in ..a hygrophilia species .. primrose creeper.
The last pic is of some of the fish at feeding time .. you should be able to see some of the fry.

I have a couple of more pics of some of the fish once they came indoors.

It took 7 days for God to create this world...

Here are pics of two of the tanks that the fish went into ..
One is of some of the Swordtails with a few fry. You can see how fat and bright they are.
Don't laugh at my fry homes ( the plastic topiary balls) ..they are hollow and small fry can easily swim in and out of them to avoid being eaten.

The second is the Melanotaenia splendida australis that hatched out in the pond . Some of them are almost 2 inches now and showing full colours .
They never stay still long enough to get a good pic .. but I estimated there are around 30 of them.
In a few weeks I will put some of them in with their parents, the rest I already have homes for.

Very cool. Is it spring yet? I can't wait to see how you improve it next year.

  proud I loved spending time in the yard..
I was joking with my family that if they found another hot tub that I would just start lining them up down one side of the yard and move all of the fish outside for the summer.
Next year I would love to add some water hyacinths and or lilys or Irises...some of the many ideas I am mulling over.
