No I love that level of information thank you so much 🙂 . I do have a heart for US natives even if they are not local natives, personally I find the "beauty" to be in natures design even if the fish is bland looking, but I also want fish on the approved list on the thought that I may......hesitant to share... but I fish a few times a year and culling some by bait fishing may happen and I want to be legal in that respect. Fun info, I have harvested Southern Redbelly Dace in IL before, maybe not native but they are down here. So do you have any thoughts on what a good hardy mosquito murderer would be on that list?
My hope for the fountain is for it to oxygenate the water when the pond gets hit with direct sun. I just want to avoid cooked fish on that 90deg day in full sun. I'm not worried about the plants since atm I am planning on just maintaining some floating plants. Thanks again I have a lot to dig into now!
Thanks for the link, and noted, I have some reading to do now but perhaps we will have to arrange something.
