    Didn't think white clouds would jump. Since they do so well in your outdoor pond :eek:

    Did you put on a lid now onto the 45L or did I miss something

    No I kept a couple in the 45L QT just temporarily while waiting for the 1,5m. Had 5 jumps, could save 3. Then gave up and put them in the jungle tank which has a hood until the 1,5m was ready for them. Before the rams.

    I’m hoping to get fry in the pond again this season! Have raise only 2 tank spawned ones this winter.
    They overwintered well in the pond but on my to-do list to clear out some plants, the pond is seriously overgrown!!

    Yesterday one could indeed NOT see the water anymore unless you know where to look for it. Felt so bad I pulled a container of plants yesterday but will need a much bigger intervention!!! Hardly made a difference :lol:

    I’m trying to give pond plants away but here in CT no-one is interested anymore, seems like the market is saturated :D

    Yes yes yes :thumbup:
    But will have to convince the Minister of Finance :D
    Should actually start an advice-seeking thread as part of the research. Have a spot in mind but might need some construction and can already foresee some challenges...

    Ah I missed this! Would really like to trade some pond plants with you some time! Although im not really sure whether I have anything you dont have. Maybe I can interest you in a variety of selective algae?
